•ImageManager FTP replication has been optimized to increase speed.
•Added local replication feature to automatically re-sync the source directory to the local drive after that drive has been swapped.
In previous versions this required a restart of the ImageManager service.
•The Recommended Recovery Environment is now based on a clean baseline WinPE build of Windows Server 2008R2, which has excellent default
device support. No additional 3rd party drivers are auto-installed. Instead, all additional 3rd party storage/network/misc drivers
(including drivers for various VMs) are found in the Additional_Drivers directory on the Recovery Environment CD, and should be loaded manually,
as needed, using the TOOLS -> LOAD DRIVERS menu item. In future builds, any changes to the contents of this Additional_Drivers directory will be
noted in a ChangeLog.txt file contained within the Additional_Drivers directory. The purpose for using the clean baseline WinPE was to eliminate
some driver conflicts which were occurring (where an injected 3rd party driver would incorrectly claim ownership of hardware it didn't actually support).
•VirtualBoot has been updated to support VirtualBox versions 3.1.0 through 3.2.12 (previously it supported 3.1.0 through 3.2.6).
When VirtualBoot.exe is run, it will display a prompt to automatically upgrade the VirtualBoot-VirtualBox plugin files if you have upgraded to
VirtualBox 3.2.8, 3.2.10 or 3.2.12. However, if you upgrade VirtualBox to 3.2.8, 3.2.10 or 3.2.12, and you have existing VirtualBoot-VirtualBox
VMs created with an earlier version of VirtualBoot, and you do *not* run VirtualBoot.exe, then you will need to upgrade the plugin files manually
in order for your VMs to work with your newer version of VirtualBox, by copying the correct three plugin files (VBoxHDDXSP.dll, sbimageapi.dll, and
sbimageapi.dll.conf) from the Program Files (x86)\StorageCraft\ShadowProtect\VirtualBootVBoxPlugin\ForVBox3.x.x directory to the Program
Files\Oracle\VirtualBox directory. To choose the correct plugin files to manually copy into the VirtualBox directory, if you have upgraded to
VirtualBox 3.2.8 then copy the plugin files from the ForVBox3.2.8 directory, or if you have upgraded to VirtualBox 3.2.10 or 3.2.12 then copy the
plugin files from the ForVBox3.2.10. If you are using a 32-bit version of Windows, then the 32-bit version of VirtualBox is installed, and you should
copy the "32BitX86" flavor of the plugin files. Otherwise, if you are using a 64-bit version of Windows, then the VirtualBox installer will have
installed 64-bit executables, and so you should copy the "64BitX64" version of the three plugin files, overwriting the older three plugin files in
the VirtualBox directory. Note that you need to close all VirtualBox windows (and ensure that there are no VirtualBox or VBoxSvc processes in your
process list in Task Manager) before you overwrite the older three plugin files in the VirtualBox directory with the newer three plugin files.
The following table describes the versions of VirtualBox which are supported by the different versions of the plugin files:
VirtualBoot Plugin Files | Supported VirtualBox Version
ForVBox3.1.0 | 3.1.0, 3.1.2, 3.1.4, 3.1.6
ForVBox3.1.8 | 3.1.8
ForVBox3.2.0 | 3.2.0, 3.2.2, 3.2.4, 3.2.6
ForVBox3.2.8 | 3.2.8
ForVBox3.2.10 | 3.2.10, 3.2.12
•Fixed issues in the installer which, in previous versions, could result in hangs during uninstall or upgrade install.
•Fixed code which selects the shortest image file chain for restore or mount, which was using longer chains resulting in slower or failed operations
•Fixed a hang on startup of the ShadowProtect.exe GUI/console
•Added event logging in cases where email reports aren't successfully sent
•Fixed an issue which was preventing drive removal of removable devices used as backup destinations
•Fixed an issue in the Recovery Environment which prevented users from specifying a .HSR file when resuming an interrupted restore operation
•Fixed an issue in the ShadowProtect Service which caused failed jobs to be immediately rescheduled and executed
•Fixed an issue with character encoding for Japanese email notifications
•Fixed an issue which could cause a "DiffGen" incremental backup to fail with an "Access Denied" error
•Fixed an issue in the Recovery Environment which caused the UI to close when right-clicking a destination in the Restore Wizard
•In ImageManager, fixed a rare case where verify would report a corrupt file when the file was actually good
•In ImageManager, fixed an issue where files to be replicated were not sent and ImageManager reported "not connected to remote file"
•In ImageManager, fixed an occasional timeout error while stopping the ImageManager service
•In ImageManager, fixed an issue where the verify operation would occasionally hang
Thanks for the heads up. Do you know if there is a new ISO file for download yet?
Yes, the new ISO is available.
(need to enter serial number)
Good to know, thanks.
Thanks for the heads up on the update!
Thank you prius! You are like the ShadowProtect information Centre
may i ask a question ?
in the new version of the recovery disk , can i restore an image on a different hardware / different pc , without having the program installed?
hope a resize feature is added
Prius04, thanks for the update!
I believe the software needs to be properly installed **in the image** (i.e., doesn't have to be installed on the target computer).
