  • Fixed: When using big log files (greater than 100MB) the program was slow to display the hourglass cursor when clicking on the execution list item.

  • Changed: The splash screen display has been rescheduled to happen before the main screen appears and now is centered on the desktop.
  • Changed: The backup start time has been reduced thus avoiding the long wait and white progress screen.
  • Changed: When a task is set that kills a process it will now kill all invocations of a process with that name.
  • Added: "Please Wait" dialog when switching to the Report tab. A big backup log file requires more time to open this tab and the program would appear hung during this scan. The "Please Wait" dialog is also shown when changing between items in the "execution list".
  • Fixed: The speed of program startup and of various operations has been improved.
  • Fixed: If running as a Service the program failed to save main window position and size when the computer shutdown.
  • Fixed: When installed as a Service, some situations would require user input before a backup could continue. These situations have been altered to have appropriate default responses and automatic time-outs in order that scheduled events can proceed as the user intended.
  •  Fixed: When restoring from Source / Folder and Destination = "Original source folder" the program failed to correctly create the destination path.
  •  Changed: The Report tab has been modified to increase the display speed.

    2. No user input (mouse or keyboard) for a specified time,
    3. The CPU Load has been under a specified percent level for more than a specified time.
    The condition can be retried every X minutes and for a maximum of Y minutes.
  5. Added Notes (user comments) on the Job tab at Session level.
  6. Stop button on the Scheduler tab in order to Stop an Event waiting for a condition to be met.
  7. For the Event "Start At" set to "Program run" a delay has been added so that the Event is triggered after the specified time amount.

  9. At "backup end" an option to Restart the computer.
  10. Blinking text on the progress tab when a Backup simulation or Restore simulation operation is under execution. The blinking is also used to signal a log resize operation, since that can be a long operation if the specified log size is high.
  11. Startup and various operations speed has been improved.
  12. Added a "Waiting" dialog when switching to the Report tab. A big backup log file requires more time to open this tab and the program was apparently hung. The wait dialog is also shown when changing the item in the "execution list".
