What's new in this version:

R-Drive Image 7.0 Build 7005
- Color contrast is improved in the TUI Startup version

- Files in rotation schemes were not correctly deleted if the Image split size parameter was used
- Sometimes it was impossible to restore data from images
- Several cosmetic bugfixes

R-Drive Image 7.0 Build 7004
- R-Drive Image installs now its startup loader on the Windows system partition when there's not enough space on the active partition
- When a path to a folder is entered on the image creation/restore/check panels, R-Drive Image opens that folder and shows its content

- R-Drive Image may have thrown an incorrect message about an UEFI system when it was impossible to install its startup loader on a pure BIOS system
- All files on the last disk (rather than only selected ones) were included into the image when files on multiple disks were selected for image creation
- When the Connect as Virtual Drive file shortcut command was executed on an image containing only files, R-Drive Image tried to mount this image, which was impossible. Fixed. The program now throws a warning message that This image contains no partitions that can be connected to the system.
- Several cosmetic and localization bugs have been fixed

R-Drive Image 7.0 Build 7003
- Default task names become connected now with their action types
- R-Drive Image changes the paths to network drives to the UNC format in tasks if the tasks are created for other users
- The Disk signature collision panel immediately appears when copying a hard drive with a system disk to another hard drive

- A source disk remained marked when it was dragged from the sources to targets, and the Copy options window was closed
- Count/size data may have disappeared when moving from a selected folder when creating an image from files
- A script that created differential or incremental images running the GUI or command string may have resulted in different results
- When copying a hard drive with a system disk to another drive a warning Unable to mount the volume may have appeared
- An incorrect progress text was shown while executing a script from a command line
- It was impossible to cancel a restore or copy operation from a shortcut menu

R-Drive Image 7.0 Build 7002
- Display of free space for an image has been improved
- Command names in the Create task menu have been made clearer

- No files appeared selected when a newly created task to create images from individual files was opened to edit
- R-Drive Image may have frozen when a partition, which was set to copy to empty space, was resized
- If two partitions were created and a disk letter was selected for the second partition, it was possible to selected the same disk letter for the first partition
- The last slash was missing in the suggested path on the Not enough free space message, which may have resulted in an invalid path
- It was impossible to move an object selected to copy/restore to the place of a deleted partition
- There was a residual outlining on a double-clicked source object
- R-Drive Image may have frozen when Wipe HDD or Clear HDD commands were executed in the Partition Manager or the Restore Image action
- It was impossible to perform operations on individual partitions during setting a Copy whole HDD action

R-Drive Image 7.0 Build 7001
New features:
- A new, completely redesigned wizard interface with improved graphical controls, drag and drop object manipulations, and visual source and target binding
- A partition manager that allows the user to delete, wipe, create, and re-size partitions and logical disks
- Image creation from individual files, not only from disk objects
- Disk wiping. The entire disk can be wiped using simple or advanced wiping algorithms. This feature is very useful for disk cleaning before disposal.
- Advanced and versatile logs accessible directly from the user interface.
- Advanced file filtering to make search for files and marking them easier. File filters can be created directly on a R-Drive Image panel or set/edited manually (Batch mode).
- Support for rotation schemes (a further development of backup sets). A rotation scheme is a set of files (usually a file for a full image of an object and a number of its incremental/differential backups) which R-Drive Image treats as one unit. Rotation schemes are used to flexibly control the parameters of complex backup tasks. R-Drive Image supports predefined and custom rotation schemes. Custom rotation schemes are available in the Corporate, Technician, and Commercial licenses.
- Support for the VMDK file type, a popular virtual machine disk format (only in Corporate, Technician, and Commercial Licenses)

- Support for APFS sealed volumes in macOS BigSur has been added
- Support for ReFS 3.7 (Windows server 2022) has been added
- The OpenSSL used in the built-in mailer has been updated to the 1.0.2 version

- ExFAT partitions may have been copied incorrectly
- FAT32 Bitlockers to go couldn't be detected
- S.M.A.R.T. attributes for Intel NVME devices were determined incorrectly
- The task finish time parameter was omitted in email reports
- The size of virtual free space that occupied the entire uninitialized drive may have been determined incorrectly
- If GPT partition table copies had the same offset/size but different GPT Guids, the partitions were duplicated two times
- The resulting partitions and volumes weren't immediately combined into equals when ReFS partitions were copied/restored
- An unnecessary direct volume may have appeared for a single formatted partition which end coincided with the drive's end
- The mount driver may have loaded incorrectly under Windows XP/2003

R-Drive Image 6.3 Build 6309
- R-Drive Image could not open incremental images with the total number of disks is larger than 4096 in all sessions

R-Drive Image 6.3 Build 6308
- A hard drive can now be raw-copied to a larger hard drive

- Mail were not sent correctly from scripts
- Connected images of dynamic disks partitions failed to open
- When Build 6307 ran a script that created correct backup sets with earlier builds, it could not find old full images and always started with creating a new full image

R-Drive Image 6.3 Build 6307
- Change log not available for this version

R-Drive Image 6.3 Build 6306
- A Windows setup which startup disk was converted from GPT/UEFI to LDM/GPT can now be restored from its image, remaining bootable
- The number of cases when a warning message that the disk needs formatting during disk copy/restore operations appears is greatly reduced

- Execution of scheduler tasks may have interrupted when the laptop changed its power from AC to its battery
- None other disk copy methods could be selected if the Copy Dynamic Disk method was selected on the Disk Copy panel but R-Drive Image failed to create a disk copy task
- Old drivers DrvSnSht.sys, DrvSnSht64.sys, R-ImageDisk.sys, R-ImageDisk64.sys conflicted with the core isolation feature. Now R-Drive Image doesn't load them and removes them starting from Windows 10 April 2018 Update (build 17134).

R-Drive Image 6.3 Build 6304
In the command-line version:
- Error messages have become more informative
- Partition expansion to the maximum size and shrinking to the minimum size during disk copy have been added
- Partitions and free spaces can be specified separately
- APFS volumes can be directly specified within their APFS container

R-Drive Image 6.3 Build 6303
- The Startup Media Device Selection panel now shows the labels and sizes of connected bootable USB devices
- If two versions of R-Drive Image are simultaneously installed into separate folders, Scheduler now shows tasks from the both version

- If a UEFI bootable partition was mounted to a disk letter through a link of an object of the DeviceHarddisk0Partition1 type (using a non-standard tool like Mount ESP), its volume may have been duplicated, and two volumes may have been created, instead of a single real one. Fixed.
- APFS partitions may have been restored incorrectly if the command-line version was used. Fixed.

- Linux kernel 5.4.11 is used in the startup version

- R-Drive Image may have crashed when the last part of a multi-file image was selected and the Restore files or folders option was specified on the Restore Mode Selection panel
- Only the Mark All and Unmark All command were active on the right pane of the Select Files panel when folders and files were to be restored. The Mark and Unmark command were not active
- Strange object of 0B may have appeared on the target disk diagram when the raw method was used to restore the entire disk. Those objects disappeared after the Refresh command
- It may have been impossible to restore data from an image of a smaller disk to a larger disk. The Target partition/volume size is too big error message would appear
- The password may have been lost when the task was edited
- The -s=I: script command didn't make the partition active, although the script returned the successful result
- The entire disk could not be restored using the Realign partitions method. R-Drive Image returned the Specified volume size is too small error message when clicking the Next button on the Processing (Confirm operations) panel
- The minimum required partition size may have been calculated incorrectly. The Specified volume size is too small error message would appear if the new partition size was too close the the minimum possible
- If the paths to some image parts of a multi-part image were not specified, R-Drive Image showed that the user ignored some write errors, but the final message would be that Image restored successfully
- Files and folders may have been impossible to restore. When the files and folders were selected on the Select Files to Restore panel the Unable to prepare the operation error message was appeared upon clicking the Next button
