    Hi All,

    What changed from 4871 to 4940 on TI10, anyone know? Should I upgrade, my back-up's & recovery are good to go at 4871? Any harm in upgrading?

    Thanks for any advice,

    Steve

    There shouldn't be any harm in upgrading but the other side of the coin says, "you don't know for sure".

    If you upgrade be sure you do your tests again which ideally includes a restore and making a new rescue CD. If you know your 4871 versions works then this should be without worry since you know 4871 can get you restored if the later version fails.

    Another position is the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" one.

    Choice is yours.

    Changes:

    Backup creation of MS Outlook 2000 and MS Outlook 2003 IMAP accounts
    File level archive creation fixes
    Better hardware support
    Bootable media fixes
    Fixes for working under Windows Vista 64
    Fixes of working with FTP
    Windows Vista restoring fixes
    Email notification fixes

    I'd upgrade... After testing 4940 (full image and restore, Windows Vista), this version seems to work flawlessly.

    Hi schatzoy.

    Here is some more info, I did the upgrade to V10.4940, I ran a back-up & have an "Extra" internal hard drive which I had no problem recovering to, I was able to boot just fine,

    Thanks everyone with help, I appreciate it!!

    Hi All,

    A couple other notable things under Build 4940 of V10, the full back-up ran about 5 mininutes faster & the recovery which took approximately 50 minutes the last time tested took about 1 hour(with build 4871) which is 13GB of data to a dell 80GB C drive (3 partitions). On my system TI10 build 4940 gets 2 thumbs up for faster back-up & faster Recovery!!

    Thanks Steve for the additional info. Can u tell me which chipset your PC is using since I have heard TIH 10 has a problem with 965P and I wonder whether that's been fixed.

    I tried 4940 on mine (I've got a p965). It'll now boot into the recovery environment, but I can't get it to make a valid archive - it either crashes with a runtime error, or can't validate the archive. I'd suggest install 4940, burn a full recovery cd, then reinstall 4871.
