    PerfectDisk 8.0 update

    According to PerfectDisk Blog Service Pack 2 for PerfectDisk 8 has been released. Get it your usual ways. Here's What's New:

    What's new in PerfectDisk build 8.00.45

    PerfectDisk Command Center
    Corrected a bug which caused the password used on deployment to be incorrectly encrypted. This resulted in a bad length or bad data error on deployment of PerfectDisk from the Command Center.
    Alternate synchronize interface is available for customers experiencing sync issues.
    Added a registry value to block going to the Raxco web site when clicking on the Online Resource Tab.
    Fixed a SQL statement for SQL 2000 and SQL 2005 servers.
    Added more detail to the error messages when the Command Center fails to connect to a client.
    Stopped the auto-refresh function from rerunning reports. This was causing the report data to change while you were reviewing it.
    Stopped the auto-refresh function from refreshing the Online Resources Tab.
    Increased the size of the History Dialog.
    Corrected various sort issues where data was not being sorted according to its data type (dates, numbers, text).
    Added support for non-English characters to the email notifications (utf-7 encoding).
    Help Files have been updated.

    PerfectDisk Client
    Added additional code to support Vista. This still requires the special Vista Beta from Raxco Software.
    Added a registry value to block going to the Raxco web site when clicking on the Online Resource Tab.
    Fixed a bug where the disk bitmap was not being updated when it should have been.
    Added code to clean up the WMI database when uninstalling PerfectDisk on Windows XP and Windows Server 2003.
    Corrected a display issue when resizing the screen.
    Added code to prevent the same file type being used in multiple File Type Groups. For example, .txt can now only belong to a single file type group.
    Corrected various sort issues where data was not being sorted according to its data type (dates, numbers, text).
    Changed the defrag driver to support Vista on X64 platforms. This still requires the special Vista Beta from Raxco Software.
    Help Files have been updated.

    Thanks, Joe.

    Would you or anyone else know if the updates are cumulative? I generally download the updates and save a backup copy. So, can I keep just the latest update file and delete all the previous ones? Or should I keep them all because should I need to reinstall the program, the updates need to be installed in the order they were released?

    Don't know for sure but as Raxco calls it a Service Pack I'd guess that it is cumulative. Best to pose the question to them.
