    Yes that is the latest official release. Not sure what the test build is all about. No change log or any other comments on it from anybody.

    I'm not in a hurry, .665 is the best version I have experienced so far on two different laptops. When .668 is available in the SD website, I will certainly update...

    I actually recorded it with my phone since I don't have a screen recorder installed right now so you guys can see, that anytime I try to commit a file it does crash but eventually it says it commited the file but it actually didn't

    I'm getting tired of this happening...whenever I'm in shadow mode and I open chrome ( this happens randomly, not everytime but quite a bit lately with v .668 ) my bookmarks are gone and just a few minutes ago, both bookmarks and bookmarks.bak were gone from my chrome directory. I lost 3 days worth of bookmarks which wasn't alot, but it still shouldn't be happening!:mad: This bug is my main issue with SD.

    Hi Overkill

    Although I've never needed it, I always take an Incremental with Macrium before shadowing

    Overkill,
    > were bookmarks lost from the last time you exited shadow
    > do you exclude or commit bookmarks

    Yes to both, but sometimes I can either reboot or turn the computer on while still in shadow mode and my bookmarks will be gone

    I usually backup bookmarks every few days, but looks like I will have to do it daily until this is fixed

    When I first started with SD. I had Firefox options change & bookmarks lost thru Exclusions.
    Since, I'll usually only Commit bookmarks. .665 has been okay.

    It has happened to me several times in the past and even worse as all bookmarks disappeared. I don't exclude nor commit anymore, I just create a text file with all important new bookmarks which I commit before rebooting out of shadow mode, a bit time consuming but safe.

    Let me see if I understand. You go to a site out of shadow mode, then go into shadow mode, and when you exit the book marks are gone?

    Peter, I don't even go to a site since chrome starts with about:blank...my bookmarks disappear different ways...my bookmarks will be in chrome, then I could either turn the pc off or reboot and then start chrome and the bookmarks are all gone. I am glad in a way that i'm not the only person that is having this issue because it basically tells the developer there's a definite bug and not just one machine is having issues.
    Also, I have started my machine and then open chrome and no problems with bookmarks, then maybe awhile later, I close chrome (I'll go do something else offline or on the pc) then eventually open it again and the bookmarks will be gone that way too.
