Does every update REALLY need a reboot ?

  1. Maybe, just maybe, I can see the first install requiring a reboot. And even then, there is no reason for it. Services can be started and stopped w/o reboots. Most software doesn't require a reboot anymore, especially server software. We just loaded GFI and Trend OfficeScan, O&O Defrag, ALL server versions on our servers AND NO REBOOT.

    A simple update to an existing TI8 installation, guess what, reboot-a-rama.

    So, why do we need to still restart ?

    Because if the services programs have been changed even with a new version number they need to be changed during the boot process because they are running all the time and locked.

    Don't worry about your sytem up timer being reset, it's not a biggy in the scheme of things :D

    The thing is that Acronis True Image uses its own low level drivers (SnapAPI drivers) in order to access hard disk drives. If update includes a new version of these drivers then the reboot is required.

    Also these enhancement has been forwarded to our Development Team and they will definitely discuss the ability not to reboot after updating our drivers.

    Hopefully answered your question well. Thank you.
