software OS4   software OS4 : AmiSystemRestore r1 beta3 released
   posted by ChrisH on 9-Sep-2012 14:16:01 (1474 reads)
łThis is the third public beta of AmiSystemRestore:

* Fixed the Restoring window showing many bogus folders. (This was harmless, but made it hard to use.)

Downloading it:
This is a public beta of AmiSystemRestore. Although I and a small number of testers have not noticed any stability problems in over 6 months of use, there is still a small possibility of crashes or lock-ups with untested programs or situations, due to the complexity of the OS patching done by AmiSystemRestore. Please report all problems to me.

You can download it from OS4Depot.net.

Details of the changes:
* BUG: Fixed the Restoring window showing many bogus folders. (This was harmless, but made it hard to use.)
* BUG: Hopefully stopped the installer crashing when the user has disabled OS4.1's new WBStartup in favour of the old SYS:WBStartup. Thanks to Dragster for the bug report. (This also means it should install correctly on OS4.0.)

What is 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. Knowledgeable 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).

I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

@ChrisH

I need to remember start using this! A couple of times I had wished I used it but remembered it after I made this install or whatever it was.

This really should be part of the OS, it's that good!
