    Anthony got a reaction from JohnesRab in Beta v2.0.3.4   
    Release v2.0.3.4 beta (2014-03-21) Updated driver to the release driver. When attempting to delete a file that the user does not have permission to delete, the driver is now reporting the error correctly under Windows 8 and Server 2012. An incorrect CRC value can be returned when a file is zero bytes in length. The CRC calculation on a file can cause the file to become locked. [n] Added option to have all mount points dismount if one or more drives go offline. Improved drive detection when a system wakes from sleep (prevent drive offline messages). [n] Added an option to dismount mount points when removing or swapping a drive. During balancing all drives are now checked to make sure all are flagged as ok (otherwise balancing is aborted). Added user authentication to the pooling of network drives. Improved the way drives are checked to determine if they are on/offline. Tuned a number of the DB Manager / addin themes. [n] Drive details are persisted across reboots (i.e. is a drive goes offline, Drive Bender retains key information such as the volume name, mode and serial numbers across reboots). Fixed a number of issues with the new "Dark" theme. [n] The "Dark" theme is now the default theme. The drives list now resized into multiple columns space permitting. The width of the columns in the File Access list are now retained.

    We kinda have something like this in v2, although it is just for writing. The landing zone feature allows you to specify a drive to be used to receive all files. I will investigate this concept further.

    Release v2.0.3.2 beta (2014-03-08) Pool restore not be offered when the Manager first starts. Multiple queues of the same type could be created causing conflicts. Notification icon was not returning to the correct color. The duplication manager could crash is there is no available mount points. Added the "Dark" theme. Themes can now be changed without restarting the Drive Bender Manager (Server addin does not support this feature). When a duplication task is being rescheduled, the rescheduling can fail. Updated internal file copy/move routines to improve file locking issues. Opening the Running Tasks windows could cause them Manager to hang.   It is important to note that we now have a single installer that services all versions of Windows. Another important note is that we are cleaning legacy Drive Bender drivers during the upgrade process, as a result it can take some time to mount the pool(s) after the initial upgrade.

    Release v2.0.3.0 beta (2014-02-27) Adding a drive under the Server addin resulted in the dashboard crashing. Adding a drive to a pool that does not have a mount point resulted in the interface crashing. Added I/O timeout on internal file management. WIP (work in progress) files not loading at start up. When deleting a file, the file parent folder's permission were not being honoured. [k] When attempting to delete a file that the user does not have permission to delete, the DB drivers is not reporting the error correctly under Windows 8 and Server 2012 (although the files permission are honoured correctly). Added start up wizard to the Manager and Server addin. Updated HDS engine.   It is important to note that we now have a single installer that services all versions of Windows.

    Release v2.0.2.9 beta (2014-01-31) [n] Unified installer (Windows and WHS versions of the installer are now merged). Multiple instances of the balancing queue can be created causing a resource issue, and file balancing conflicts. Many interface issues have been fixed with both the Manager and Windows server addin. More improvements to the drive add, remove, merge, convert and swap routines. The drive merge feature is now integrated into the drive add feature (if files are detected, the merge option is shown). [d] Driver upgraded to the production release version. Improved driver upgrading when going from Drive Bender v1 to Drive Bender v2. Fixed a potential interface deadlock when running add, remove, merge and swap routines. When balancing files on a system that contains duplicates, there can be a conflict between the primary and duplicate. Added Open SSL dependencies.   It is important to note that we now have a single installer that services all versions of Windows. Another important note is that we are cleaning legacy Drive Bender drivers during the upgrade process, as a result it can take some time to mount the pool(s) after the initial upgrade.
