This latest build has the following change log:

  • Increased the default size of the main window to 750×300.
  • Fixed installation script for Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials.
  • [D] Fixed a memory leak of a few bytes when fully unloading the virtual disk driver.
  • Moved all persistent UI state information into the UI Store and out of the .config. (your UI state will reset)
  • Added the ability to sort the pooled disks list in the horizontal UI. The default sort order is now "By Name".
  • Ignore disk updates from disks that have no media. This was causing the service and UI to refresh too often. Observed this with a DELL USB flash card reader.
  • Persistent UI settings are now upgraded, so that you don’t loose them when performing an update.
  • Added a new help window that shows up after you create your first pool that explains the basics of how the pool works.
  • If the UI disconnects from the service then any open UI windows will be automatically closed.
  • Disk temperature will now be shown in Fahrenheit or Celsius, depending on your Scanner settings. (requires Scanner or newer)
  • Added Dashboard component for Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials.
  • Added a warning message to the UI when a pool has no drive letters assigned to it. This can happen if automount is disabled in Windows.
  • A pool that was not assigned a drive letter would display an incorrect duplication status in the UI.
  • When automount was disabled in Windows, a new pool would not be recognized, and creating a new pool would get stuck as 95% and fail.
  • Sometimes a new pool would not be recognized if it was assigned a drive letter that was previously assigned to a non-pool volume.
  • Added "hint-poolpart" command to dpcmd.
  • Added "add-poolpart" command to dpcmd.
  • Added "list-poolparts" command to dpcmd.
  • [D] Added support for receiving pool part hints from user mode.
  • [D] Fixed an issue where Windows was setting the virtual disk to read-only mode.
      – This was causing the NFS Server to not work over the pool.
  • [D] Enabled file ID support by default. (CoveFs_OpenByFileId)
  • Got rid of the large blank space in UI when creating a new pool in horizontal mode.
  • Disk tooltips are now centered.
  • Added DrivePool tab to the Dashboard in Windows Server 2012 Essentials.
  • Added StableBit DrivePool tab to the Dashboard in WHS 2011 (and similar).
      – There will be no separate wssx installer.
      – WSS notifications are not supported.
  • Added option to increase / decrease the duplication count of a duplicated folder, without first disabling duplication.
