    Noticed recently that upon booting up my rig Fd_Isr appears with a red cross. Clicking on it to bring up the management console still works and usually changing the options from show tray icon to not show tray icon to show tray icon solves the issue ( or perhaps the cross just disappears after a while?).
    I searched for info and found only https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=172930&highlight=cross which describes the problem but is a bit vague on the solution. It's an old thread, could not even post to it, so I am wondering if there is some more recent knowledge on what is causing this and how to avoid it.

    Hm, do your snapshots and/or archives have fairly long names, or are they short?

    I ask, because in the past i've had some long named schedules and snapshots which caused fdisr to exhibit the behavior you are describing. It must be something totally different in your case then- can you possibly remember if you made any kind of change to your system at the last point you remember fdisr working properly? This may be an important point in trouble shooting the problem.

    The only thing I changed was to install a new network printer - well, I keep monitoring this. Might try the uninstall / reinstall routine when I have some more time.

    Trying a reinstall is a good idea- it only takes 5 minutes and may solve the problem- there's been a time or two in the past when I had to reinstall. If that doesn't solve the problem, report back and we can go from there.

    good luck:thumb:

    edit - try booting around to different snapshots and see if the problem exists on all of them, or only on certain ones. if the problem is uniform across all snapshots, it probably needs a reinstall, whereas if the problem only appears in certain snapshots, some type of conflict may be occuring.

    I've had this happen on the odd occasion, sometimes after uninstalling something.

    A reboot usually sorts it.

    I don't have this problem, but it happens sometimes, that it takes longer than usual to make the red cross disappear, but in the end the red cross is always gone. I don't have any problem with FDISR and my problems in the past where related to lack of basic knowledge.
    If I had regular problems, I would have ditched FDISR long time ago and replaced it with RollbackRx. :rolleyes:
