Sat, 2002/06/08 - 21:10
  • corrected error connected with copying data in Windows NT/2000/XP with disabled buffering
  • corrected speed of pausing, resuming, ... of tasks, especially at NT series of Windows (NT/2000/XP)
  • corrected bug connected with setting destination folder for temporary data
  • added autodetection of buffer size and 5 different buffer sizes for 5 different types of copying; changed way to enter buffer sizes, ...
  • corrected strange effects connected with large buffer sizes
  • additional options in program's main menu - registration/unregistration of shell extension DLL
  • showing status window now cause autohide of mini status
  • when entering path to sounds and to temporary folder you can use some shortcuts (these paths doesn't end with \, so you have to add it when modifying path ie. < WINDOWS >\media; paths entered that way has to be enter uppercase - < WINDOWS > instead < windows > or < Windows >; paths entered that way contain no spaces, though it may look differently):
    • < WINDOWS > - windows directory (ie. c:\windows)
    • < TEMP > - directory for temporary data (ie. c:\windows\temp)
    • < SYSTEM > - system directory (ie. c:\windows\system)
    • < APPDATA > - directory for application's data (ie. c:\windows\AppData)
    • < DESKTOP > - directory with files that are places on desktop (ie. c:\windows\desktop)
    • < PERSONAL > - private directory for logged user (ie. c:\my documents)
  • corrected shutdown of program (by the menu option 'exit' and by system shutdown) - now program saves its state before exit; program's shutdown was also speeded up
  • now system shutdown allows cancelling for some time and also works under Windows NT/2000/XP; additionally, when auto system shutdown after finished is enabled and none of tasks isn't currently processed - program will not shut down the system - it'll wait for any task to start; you may also set type of shutdown (force/normal)
  • corrected mini status from the point of view of cooperation with Windows NT/2000/XP - now, you can use buttons placed on caption bar of mini status
  • pressing resume button on waiting task will cause that task to start, even if normally 'limiting operations' do not allow task to start
  • if 'limit maximum operations' option is enabled - the tasks will be started in order they appear on the task list
  • changed a little handling of .log files and errors - now, except of error number there is shown info about error, and a place in program where error occurs
  • in status window added additional info about temporary file associated with given task
  • a little modifications of UI (icons were taken from Windows XP - I hope nobody would be angry), optimalizations, other...
Thu, 2002/04/25 - 21:04
  • corected many errors connected with displaying text - especially when selecting large fonts in display properties (control panel), or setting some strange color and size scheme
  • changed handling copy without buffering - previously file was copied by multiplies of buffer size. If read data size wasn't the multiply of the buffer size then program stored overfluous info to destination file, and after a moment changed size of the file to a size of source file. Now copying has a two passes - first copies files by the multiplies of buffer size, and the second the rest data (concerns only files copying with no buffering)
  • added new option in program's main menu - shutting down the systemafter finished copying
  • corrected handling of displaying dialog box informing about missing enough free space on disk - now, when copying was interrupted in a half and then resumed - when calculating needed free space there is being taken the copied part into consideration.
  • corrected (a little) visual confirmation dialogs - they're now a little more 'clean', but further they're wretched
  • corrected error - limiting count of simultaneously performed operations in some situations stops working correctly, and requires to restart program.
  • corrected moving data inside one partition boundary - previously moving data this way caused generating an error 'File exists' if there was folder or file with the same name with this being copied
  • corrected incorrectly showed progress in case copying data with disabled buffering (it may caused some other problems of which I haven't known).
  • little corrections to a tab order in many dialogs
Mon, 2001/12/31 - 23:10
  • replaced BCMenu old version with the new one (user interface change: default item is shown with bold atribute of text)
  • now there isn't showed 0% after finished moving files (not folders) inside one partition boundary.
  • added feature for copying files without buffering (it's usable when copying large files)
    • buffer sizes are rounded up to the nearest multiple of 64kB.
    • if file is being copied without buffering and has size which is not multiple of 4kB then destination file in one moment will have size greater than source file. (Attention: If in this moment copying will be interrupted, then later resumed - program will start copying from beginning, unless option of using visual confirmation dialogs is set to heavy).
    • there are two new options - first allows enabling/disabling of using copy wihout buffering, the secode allows to specify minimal file size, which qualify it to copy without buffering (copying small files without buffering will cause to lower copying speed)
  • corrected handling of configuration (now it shouldn't block other parts of program)
  • corrected tab order in some windows
  • changed arrangement of main menu in program; added new item in this menu - now 'Monitoring clipboard' could be chosen from that menu (not only from Options)
Mon, 2001/12/31 - 23:05
  • corrected DLL cooperation with ANSI version of Windows (98/Me)
Mon, 2001/12/31 - 23:00
  • corrected situation, when missing source file (with visual confirmation dialogs turned on) caused program to do the "forbidden operation".
  • now, the window for custom copy parameters shows the operation type (copy, move)
  • corrected cooperation of program with UNICODE versions of Windows (NT/2000/XP) - now program (really the DLL) should work properly under that systems.
  • if "View log" doesn't show notepad with log file then it shows info with error
  • in choose destination directory window (with enabled clipboard monitoring) appear info on disk's free space
  • if encountered copy error, then automatically retrying will be performed after some time (set in options) counted from that encounter, not like earlier from last retry attempt.
  • if program state, that there is no room for the files (it's checked at the beginning of operation) then it show some info about it.
  • corrected incorrectly showed strings for Explorer context menus.
