Since this thread is about FDISR only, I posted it in the approperiate forum. Introduction First of all the button "Show Details/Hide Details" on the processing screen to copy/update/archive/restore snapshots has to disappear and is a total unneccessary and very annoying gadget. I would like to have ONE complete processing screen. Each time that screen appears, I have to click the "Show Details"-button to see the details and unmark the box "Close when task has completed". You don't use this gadget on a processing screens. If you don't click on the button "Show Details", you don't even see the buttons "Pause" and "Stop". This is something has to change. Also the default value (marked or not marked) of the box "Close when task has completed" needs to be configurable somewhere in the Tool/Options menu of FDISR. Another thing what I don't understand is that all FDISR-users are talking about "refreshing snapshots". I must be blind but FDISR doesn't use that expression "refreshing" or "refresh". I only see copy/update. Is the word "refresh" the same as "update" or what ? I'm just talking about the WORD, you don't have to explain what refreshing is, I will soon find out what it really is. Each FDISR-user should follow this thread, not because "I" wrote it, but because of the "TEST RESULTS". I'm not important, the tests are important and FDISR is important. What works and what doesn't work in FDISR is the main purpose of this thread. I would appreciate it, if something doesn't work, that other FDISR-users also test it IF POSSIBLE. You don't need to destroy your system, because of my tests. This is my first test and it won't be the last one. Test Archiving/Restoring Snapshots I disabled the pre-boot in these tests, but I don't think it's necessary. I just did it to avoid comments on not having disabled the pre-boot. 1. ARCHIVE FROM an Inactive Snapshot TO Archived Snapshot Seems to work and Error=0 2. ARCHIVE FROM an Active Snapshot TO Archived Snapshot Seems to work and Error=0 3. RESTORE FROM Archived Inactive Snapshot TO New Snapshot "Archived Inactive" means that the archived snapshot (.arx) was based on an inactive snapshot. Seems to work and Error=0. Also booting in the new snapshot worked as expected. 4. RESTORE FROM Archived Active Snapshot TO New snapshot "Archived Active" means that the archived snapshot (.arx) was based on an active snapshot. Does NOT work and Error=1 and I tried it already 4 times and each time Error=1 Of course I didn't boot in the new snapshot. The new snapshot is mentioned in the main menu as a normal snapshot. This is the Activity log : Error Detail : Conclusion An archived snapshot, that was based on an ACTIVE snapshot can NOT be restored without errors. You can NOT see this during the creation of the archived snapshot, because Error=0 You can NOT see this in the .arx-file or FDISR-main menu, because the new snapshot looks like a normal snapshot You will only notice this when you try to restore the archived snapshots. If you were never aware of this, all your archived snapshots, based on an ACTIVE snapshot, will results in a new snapshot with Error=1. The crucial question : "Is this normal or is this a bug ?" Don't ask me, I'm just an observer.
