    Drive Snapshot is acting really weird for me. I'm referring to the 1.39 build that was released on December 1st. When I first start creating an image on my Windows 7 system partition it says that it's 10+ gb, also telling me that it cannot exclude the swap or hibernation files. Then after the image has been created in says that it is only 5+ gb, which is on par with ShadowProtect and Active @ Disk Image. But when I explore the image I just created it says that there is a 3 gb hibernation file and a 4 gb swap. Other versions of 1.39 resulted in roughly a 10 gb sna as well. But 1.40 RC 3 had the same behavior as the current 1.39 build. Can anyone verify or offer clarification here?

    I used the same (default) settings each time.

    I can verify but I don't know why it does that. Maybe it sucessfully excluded those two files?

    In my case it only said it can't exlude hiberfil.sys but apparently it did.

    Do you have an old version of 1.39 where that was not the case?

    No I don't, I downloaded it recently, haven't tried it before.

    Drive Snapshot 1.39 and 1.40RC3 behave the same way

    no problem here (predicting compression rates is a bit like predicting the future)


    in the first picture, Snapshot has read 1305 MB, and compressed this to 695 MB, resulting in an estimated compression factor of 0,532. based on this, it estimates that the complete 17013 MB will need 9060 MB.

    in the end, it turns out that the data were much better compressable.

    both 1.39 and 1.40 behave identical.
