Data Lifeguard Diagnostic for DOS
Version: v5.22
2014Jun

Changelog:

Code: Select all

5.22:
   - Renamed to DOSDLG.
   - Removed missing test tracks check.
I don't know if the now-removed test was worth anything (but there is a mention about it in the Windows version about having to use the DOS version in certain circumstances).

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.

During my prior post I also updated the post (in this same topic) about HDClone (to 5.0.7), but I didn't mention it then, so I'm doing it now.

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.

I don't know whether there is going to ever be an official announcement, and the new HWINFO v5.5.5 version might be perfectly fine. I just wanted to point out the seemingly "testing" character of this new version.

Perhaps UBCD should keep the officially-announced older HWINFO v5.5.2 too, until some official announcement of some new HWINFO for DOS version is posted.

Terabyte Unlimited Partinfo v.1.14
IMHO, from the binaries included in the original zip, only the DOS executable should be included. Including the other executables is just a waste of space. Remember that the free space in the fdubcd image is limited.

I don't know about its changelog, but the DOS-based executable checksum is different than the prior version included in UBCD.

Is this still true? As far as I can tell, v5.5.5 is official on their website.

At the moment I am typing this post...

The only change in the official website is that v5.5.5 is linked in their own "download" page and says "5.5.5" with the date of the new file. The same download page still mentions an old "changes" item (corresponding to an old release).

The official mirrors are still providing v.5.5.2 for download. The only place to download v.5.5.5 is the main website (not in the mirrors).

In the official forum, there are "announcements" for the Windows-based releases. The latest "announcement" topic for a DOS-based release is still for version 5.5.2.

In the official forum, in the topic that triggered the new HWINFO v5.5.5, the developer explicitly says that, considering that there has been some time since the prior DOS-based release (v5.5.2), the DOS-based program was "in effect" phased-out. And yet, in the same forum topic he posted a link for this v5.5.5 version so the reporter of the alleged problem would test it and report feedback. As it happens too-frequently, there is still no feedback about this version (and the post is already a-month-old).

So, this is the current state of the situation (facts). There is no changelog for v.5.5.5. Whichever problem was in there in the prior version, there is still no feedback (and at this point, I wouldn't keep waiting for it) and no mention about what changed. The official download mirrors still provide v5.5.2 as "latest" version.

Improved the antivirus update scripts (clamav.sh and fprot.sh scripts) from UBCD5.3.0 version to download only if newer antivirus signatures are available on the server based on the remote server timestamp.

NOTE: I noticed that wget sets the timestamp of the downloaded files to the server timestamp and thought of making use of the same to not to have to download 24MB to 62MB files if they do not have newer timestamp.

following attachment contains the scripts

Improved to only download newer antivirus definition update files are available.
