Re: Is it possible to host the latest EXPLODED ISO of UBCD?

@milindck: git is not an option. See this : In addition, we place a strict limit of files exceeding 100 MB in size. @ady: xdelta does not directly address the issue of updating the USB memory stick directly. As a side note, I stopped generating the xdelta file for two reasons. 1) There are very few ...

Re: Is it possible to host the latest EXPLODED ISO of UBCD?

The idea is a sound one.

I hope someone with the server capacity can step it to do this.

Actually rsync might be a better match, since it can perform deletion of obsolete files at the same time.

Re: Improved antivirus UBCD update scripts for f-prot & clam

Hi, thanks for sharing your updates! However, the "clamav.sh" script has already been updated in V5.3.1 to download only if the timestamps on the webpage have changed, which I think is a more efficient way of performing the update since it does not require downloading the .cvd files (and stat-ing th...

Re: Mailing List

The problem has been fixed.

I can see the mail in the archive (in fact there are 2, just I sent out another identical one for debugging), although I haven't received it in my own mailbox yet.

But I think it shouldn't be too long.

No I didnt't, and have a copy of the sent mail in my Thunderbird client to prove! However I just logged into SF to check and cannot find the mail in the archive. I suspect something is amiss with the mailing list and needs to be debugged. Unfortunately, I am away from my personal PC at home until Th...

Holy cow. My bad. I need to automate some of the stuff I do with each new release. I currently have 20+ items on the checklist, and sometimes I miss out stuff.

Re: UBCD V5.3.0 available for download

I want to point out that at the moment HWINFO for DOS v5.5.5 was only posted for testing. The latest official announcement at this moment is still for version 5.5.2, and at least some of the official download mirrors are still offering that older version. Is this still true? As far as I can tell, v...

Re: Suggestions for replacement of Parted Magic

So when can we expect this as part of the main UBCD deployment? Until enough of us hate the current version of PM enough that we want it kicked out. :D Or a better PM replacement might just appear, making UBCD Live unnecessary. Anyway, keep testing! The more feedback received, the better the final ...

Re: UBCD V5.3.0 available for download

Perhaps the prior version 5.21 should be kept too, alongside with the new (renamed) 5.22 version?
Think that's the most prudent approach.

Re: need help finding recovery partition in Dell Latitude 55

You can try DSRFix, under HDD / Partition Management.

For more info, see http://www.goodells.net/dellrestore/fixes.shtml

However, sometimes the recovery partition has simply been deleted by the previous owner, and AFAIK there's no way to bring it back.
