I will try it tonight, the windoze version.

The Linux version (Windows version too) should be able to read or write back a block device image flawlessly - these functions don't care about content, partitions, file systems or somewhat. In case of my Linux-Notebook writing of SD cards was extremely slow - for sure a driver problem. However, can you give me some more details: image size, hard drive type and so on... Does the file transfer dialo shows someting usable wirh the original drive, and/or with the image file? Which file sys is displayed on device info panel (prior dialog).
leech wrote:ha, All error dialogs should be like that. One of my favorite errors has been 'something has gone terribly wrong.'
frank71 wrote:That's PP's wording - I thought it was funny, therefore it's still in. Error 2 means: file not found. That happens if the system loses the device somehow. But a couple of sectors seems to have been read.
I will do some testings more...
I've uploaded V 0.97 - There are some bugfixes and the file list view now uses the atari font ... and reading / writing physical devises under Windows uses FSCTL_LOCK_VOLUME now, to (probably) prevent Windows from doing anything with the drive while DrImg works with it. That's a guess, becasue I didn't get the "read / write error ".
I will try to test it on several systems - but maybe Wongck still feels like testing.
(Linux version 0.97 will be uploaded soon.)
Linux version 0.97 is uploaded now.
I've tested the latest Windows Version (0.97) on several systems, WIN7 and WIN10. I've transferred a 80 GiB image several times via USB-IDE adapter without any problems. File transfer tests ran also flawlessly, so I hope, I got it now. But the ultimative test will be on Wongcks system.
leech wrote:Yeah, just my advice, when transferring large images, connect to the back motherboard ports of USB, I don't know what it is, but the front ports of every case seem to be worthless. Not sure if it's the cables that connect to the motherboard, or some voltage drops or what... To be fair, the hard drive docking station where it works for me has a separate power supply.
