27 April 2019
Version 2.1.12 released
* Fixed a bug where source drives would sometimes list with no data and size of zero.
* Fixed a bug where attempting to get SMART data would fail after stopping the cloning process.

23 April 2019 Version 2.1.11 released

23 April 2019
Version 2.1.11 released
* Fixed a bug where direct mode was allowing drives visable to the OS to be selected as the source.
* Added a program script that can install some needed program dependencies if they are missing. See the Install section of the manual for more information.

19 April 2019
Version 2.1.10 released
* Improved SCSI write error detection.
* Changed the direct SCSI write timeout to 2 seconds, as 1 second could be considered too low, now that better write error detection has been implemented.
* Fixed a bug with direct AHCI for some motherboards, where it would not list any drives.
* Updated some information for the WD VSC scripts, mostly adding some additional warnings.
* Added the script wd_royl_write_mod, for writing modules to WD drives (use at your own risk).

28 March 2019 Version 2.1.9 released

28 March 2019
Version 2.1.9 released
* Added a section in the user manual for relay operation.
* Improved the SCSI read mode support detection.
* Added a 1 second timeout for SCSI passthrough writes, since the OS seems to completely fail to report any sense code in this case. The SCSI passthrough write is only for writing to 520 byte per sector SAS drives.
* Added some extra information in the user manual about using the SCSI write option.
* Added a Russian language translation pack from an unnamed author.

18 February 2019
Installers updated
* There was an issue with the RPM installer. After fixing the issue, all of the installers have been updated for the current version 2.1.8. No program changes were made.

3 February 2019 Version 2.1.8 released

posted Feb 3, 2019, 11:04 AM by Scott Dwyer

3 February 2019
Version 2.1.8 released
* Improved how the trimming phase handles major errors that stop the cloning. It now marks the rest of the block as non-scraped before stopping, so that when resuming it will move on to the next non-trimmed block, instead of resuming with the non-trimmed block that caused the error.
* Added 0.5 second to the soft reset time of the first read when cloning is started to allow the disk to perform the initial seek from parked, to prevent marking the first read as bad if using a small soft reset time.
* Fixed a bug where the phase logs were disabled if the log backup was disabled.
* Fixed a bug where the phase log setting was not saved to the project file.
* Added an additional message at the end of cloning as a catch all for any possible conditions that the program stops cloning without any other message.
* Fixed a bug where SCSI passthrough mode would still use ATA identify device data if it detected the device would accept the command.
* Added the Tools menu option Display Identify Results to display the results of the identify device command.
* Enable using ATA return to mark bad sectors is now turned on by default in the pro version.

16 January 2019 Version 2.1.7 released

posted Jan 16, 2019, 2:11 PM by Scott Dwyer

16 January 2019
Version 2.1.7 released
* Fixed a missing error message for certain conditions when chosing the source device.
* Changed how the progress log is written, it is now written first as a .tmp file, and then renamed after it is successfully written. This helps keep the current log file one that is not partial or corrupt. The backup file is still written if not disabled.
* The domain file is no longer written if it is not being used.
* Fixed a bug with the Direct AHCI mode that could possibly cause issues with this mode not working on some computers.

2 January 2019 Version 2.1.6 released

posted Jan 2, 2019, 11:54 AM by Scott Dwyer

2 January 2019
Version 2.1.6 released
* Fixed a bug where there was no message indicating an unsupported sector size in the free version. What would happen when the sector size was not 512, there was no indication of that, but then attempting to start cloning would result in a message that the drive size had changed, with no indication it was because of the unsupported sector size. Now there is a message when the sector size is not supported in the free version.
* Fixed a bug where SCSI passthrough (or auto passthrough with USB drives) could report that the drive sized changed when it did not.

22 December 2018 Version 2.1.5 released

posted Dec 23, 2018, 4:53 PM by Scott Dwyer

22 December 2018
Version 2.1.5 released
* Fixed a bug that when using a relay to power cycle, having the relay setting enabled would cause the fill modes to fail.
* Added an initial reset in direct mode when choosing the source, to help in the case where the drive or port is locked up.
* Disabled the main window while processing the source, as it would allow you to do things while it was processing, which could cause fatal program errors.
* The virtual driver will now start automatically when the program is unable to get memory addresses in the 32 bit range when using direct IDE or AHCI modes. This also works for HDDSuperTool mode.

4 December 2018 Version 2.1.4 released

posted Dec 4, 2018, 5:49 PM by Scott Dwyer

4 December 2018
Version 2.1.4 released
* Added basic read time information in the progress log, and updated the user manual with the information.
