I read this version, used in 5.2.7 has some seriuos bugs.
Parted Magic is now payware even many inside software are free programs. (why buy for it?)
They have some warnings:

- a very destructive USB corruption bug
When will it cause and how to avoid it?

- OLD Secure Erase GUI that would allow a user to erase an ATA disk through a USB interface
Can we avoid the mistake?

- The OLD GUI would also set the secure erase password to NULL by default
Is that a big problem?

- quickly released version 2013_08_10
Is this GPL version or first payware version?

If we can avoid big problems with the used version, we hope it will keep the problems low under users, otherwise i should try another version...

Thanks.

Are the bugs serious enough to revert back to 2013_06_15_i586?

2013_08_10_i586 is payware and can't be included. See http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=14700.

Just for those distracted readers that might miss the title / subject of this topic, the warnings and/or potential bugs (or whatever) are NOT related to UBCD, but to pmagic.

As with any other tool included in UBCD, use under your own responsibility.
