This is the 7th PUBLIC BETA of AmiSystemRestore. AmiSystemRestore aims to give AmigaOS4 a similar ability to Window's very useful System Restore. What it does is create Restore Points, which act as snapshots of your SYS: partition (where the OS is stored). If anything changes on your SYS: partition, then you can roll it back to the time of the snapshot. Why would you want to undo changes to your SYS: partition? Well, if you install a new program (or update an existing one), you have no idea if any new libraries (or other changes) will have problems that may break existing programs. A badly written installer might even replace libraries (etc) with older versions! AmiSystemRestore allows you to undo ALL recent changes (whether or not they were done by the installer), and return SYS: to an earlier point in time. Knowledgable users can be more selective about which changes are undone, with the warning that they need to know what they are doing! If you are installing something using AmiUpdate or the official Installer system, then AmiSystemRestore will automatically create Restore Points for you (and Ringhio messages should notify you of this). This is a PUBLIC BETA of AmiSystemRestore. But as no stability problems have been reported (despite more than a year of public use), I will probably be making it non-beta within the next few releases. Thank you to everyone who has tested it. Recent changes: * BUG: Fixed a nasty bug, where a (deleted/changed) soft link in the Sys: partition to a folder somewhere, could cause AmiSystemRestore to delete everything inside that folder. This could easily happen if RunInUAE was installed on Sys:. * BUG: The GUI would crash if you attempted to manually delete a restore point which contained a soft link.
