8 September 2019
Version 2.2.1 released
* Added buss/device information and vendor/product id when listing the source drive in Direct USB mode. Also added information to the user manual about this.
* Increased the maximum cluster (buffer) size by 4x to 4MB for direct IDE and ACHI modes.

24 August 2019
Version 2.2.0 released
* Fixed a bug where the SCSI write would not always work.
* Fixed a bug with the Direct USB mode where the inquiry command would fail on some drives such as flash drives.
* Fixed some issues with SCSI passthrough related to inquiry and read capacity commands. Hopefully this does not break anything that was already working.

18 August 2019
Version 2.1.14 released
* Improved the drive lockup detection on USB connected ATA drives by adding a passthrough ATA identify command.
* Fixed a bug with the driver minimum cluster size in mode 3, where it would not always read the minimum size.
* Made the minimum driver cluster size also affect domain reads.
* Enabling SCSI write now uses /dev/sgX devices, with the hope of working in cases where /dev/sdX chosen devices do not work properly.
* Added the new Direct USB mode, along with updates to the user manual to reflect the new options and operation for the mode.

8 August 2019
Version 2.1.13 released
* Fixed a bug with the timing byte in the log when using the pro version option to use ATA return data to mark bad sectors.
* Fixed a bug with some USB drives/adapters where bad reads were being reported as good.
* Fixed a bug where the read capacity command would fail on older SCSI drives.
* Fixed the generic source device mode, as it was broken and not working at all.
* Fixed a bug with the model name in generic source device mode.
* Changed some of the default timeouts to a higher value.

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

posted Apr 19, 2019, 5:16 PM by Scott Dwyer

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

posted Mar 28, 2019, 11:42 AM by Scott Dwyer

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

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.
