    Anthony got a reaction from Curtistef in Drive Bender v2.3.0.0 released   
    Release v2.3.0.0 release (2015-01-07) S.M.A.R.T now being processed by its own service (the change in the previous release failed for some users). The Windows Server Dashboard could crash if some options were selected. When performing a pool audit, the file size used to calculate pool-usage is now based on the size used on the drive, not the file size itself. This means the non pool value display in the Drive Bender Manager will be more accurate.

    Release v2.2.0.0 release (2014-12-11) Internal tasks can hang due to a dead locking issue. Improved handling of missing drives at boot. When remove a drive if the file being move out already exists in the pool, then the file is renamed (previously this would generate an error). The Drive Bender Manager can open the sub menus in the incorrect location on a multi-monitor setup (we could not reproduce this, however we did change code in an effort to fix this). When adding a drive, the merge option is disabled for system drives. S.M.A.R.T. processing has been moved to the external tray application. When a drive disconnects from the pool, Drive Bender now additional low level tasks to reconnect. When removing a drive from the pool, the drive's health is checked and if not 100% healthy, a warning is displayed.

    Anthony got a reaction from CBers in Drive Bender v2.1.9.0 released   
    Release v2.1.9.0 release (2014-09-26)
    When enumerating folders during a file system health check or balancing operation, the watch dog introduced in v2.1.7.0 is now disabled by default (was causing a benign error to be generated).
    A fix to the "Microsoft based objects permission issue", caused other file handling issues. This has now fixed and the original permission issue has been rectified.
    The setting for update check and notification was not be honored correctly.

    Release v2.1.8.0 release (2014-09-17) When enumerating folders, the process can hang if a folder that is flagged as "pending delete" is encountered. When enumerating folders, scanning of the System Volume Information folder can cause the process to hang. If a thread that has obtained a folder enumeration lock hangs, the locks will be reset after a short period. The timeout for a folder enumeration scan has been increased (this is to prevent slower systems timeout when there are just slow to respond). When installing certain Microsoft based objects, they can fail with an "Access Denied" error. Desktop.ini files were not being included in the file audit. The file audit count was not being correctly persisted across restarts.   Download here

    We have actually received this request many times over DB's development. To be honest, I kinda see the benefit of this... we just need to work out how this would be maintained (i.e. the interface used to manage such a feature).

    Release v2.1.6.0 release (2014-08-25) Further improvements to the upgrade start up issue. [n] Added registry switches to allow a mount point to mount as a non PnP drive. The health monitor scan can fail on folders containing certain string formatting characters. File balancing cab start while a drive is being removed. This can result in multiple primary files being created. [n] You can now specify the "drive full" values (i.e. when a drive is considered full). This value is used for both cascade balancing and landing zone. When performing a file system check, or scanning drive to be balanced, the task can hang if a directory junction point is found. Fixed how the client is displaying the non-pooled value, it should no longer corrupt the pie chart. Deleting a notification does not always work. A number of minor interface fixes and updates. The Drive Bender tray notification application uses less resources.   Download here
