    This is Version: 1.4.0.665, is working OK with latest Windows update (FCU)?
    ====================================================================
    Why is this program so often shared free of charge?

    Sorry for the late reply @y0l0y0l0, I was too busy and/or too offline to visit Wilders :)

    Currently I am not using Shadow Defender on my main system. Although what you described (moving folders with frequetly changing contents to unshadowed volumes, this could include the system's temp folders, like it's described here for RAMdisks) would probably work, I would prefer to see this bug being fixed instead of resorting to workarounds. :) At least we now know it's affecting most, if not all systems.

    For now, I recommend not trusting the integrity of new&modified files on shadowed volumes, and using only the "commit" function after verifying every single file you intend to permanently write to the volume.

    As it seems possible that @sdmod's mails are being stopped somewhere on their way to the Far East, I'll send a mail to the developer myself, and so should everyone who can reproduce the problem on their system. @Overkill with his bookmarks problem seems to be a candidate as well. :) This way we can make sure the developer is aware of the problem and tries to reproduce it on his system (i'm quite certain he will succeed :)).

    As I've said before, Shadow Defender has the potential to be an invaluable piece of software to me, but this problem it too much of a show-stopper to keep using it in its current state, at least for me.

    @Robin A.

    That was poor wording on my part, the test run was to be for Shadow Defender itself, not a full Windows 10 setup in shadowmode. :D

    Tony used to be a Wilders member and he posted a few times back in the early days.
    He had a very very limited use of English then and he told me that he struggled with large amounts of text

    It asks for Internet connection before installing.. weird. Also it says preactivated. I'm skeptical so I decided to skip it. Other opinions? Also sha and md5 dont match with the ones posted on the other page.
    Is download.hr to be trusted?

    All red alarm lights for me. From piracy to adware installation. I'd stay away from it.

    Giveaway sites often repackage software with custom installers, some of them (giveawayoftheday.com for example) require an internet connection to verify that you're not trying to install the software after the giveaway period has expired. That said, I've never heard of download.hr and their giveaways until now, no idea about their reputation...so I would probably skip this one, too :)

    Download.hr is site from Croatia and I think it offers the same (similar) thing like it was a couple of days ago on SOS

    Change the version number of the download:
    Code:
    Latest official release:
    http://www.shadowdefender.com/download/SD1.4.0.665_Setup.exe
    If you want to download 1.4.0.648, change it to:
    http://www.shadowdefender.com/download/SD1.4.0.648_Setup.exe
    
    Edit: Yeah, see #5238 ;)
    But it doesn't work for older versions than .648 (old versions are not retained indefinitely on the server :cautious:)

    I'm tired of the bookmarks bug, so I figured maybe an older version wouldn't have that bug...I tried putting 1.4.0.519_Setup.exe but it gave me an error saying not found

    SOOOO annoying! I was updating some apps and was out of shadow mode for a few hours and made a few reboots and chrome bookmarks were fine and then I entered shadow mode once I was done updating, and maybe 20 min after I reboot and open chrome again and my d*** bookmarks were gone AGAIN!!! That was sort of a test to verify that it is definitely shadow defender doing it.
