“What’s new in the AUVESY Image Service for versiondog 8.0?”
As of versiondog 8.0, there have been some improvements to the AUVESY Image Service. One improvement is the ability to save an image locally on the target PC. This allows you to create a duplicate of a drive on a local machine if you have multiple hard drives.
We have also added the ability to change the temporary storage location per job as opposed to having one global standard. This is helpful for any situation where a network share is the final storage location, but you do not want each target PC to have the permissions to write on the storage location. It’s also helpful if target PCs do not have a direct connection to the final storage location. If this permission level or connectivity does not exist, you can use a temporary file storage location. Then, the versiondog Server can export the image from this temporary storage location to the final storage location. We still recommend a direct connection from target PCs to the network share when possible to save the most time, particularly in environments with lower bandwidth.
Another improvement to the AUVESY Image Service is the new bootstick tool for recovery. This allows you to take a blank hard disk and restore to the version of Windows with all of your file structures, a very easy solution for destroyed PCs. In the future, we are developing an option for Linux systems as well. Customers can find this tool in my.versiondog.com under downloads.
