Hyper-V Backup Utility - Update 24.03.08

 ·  ☕ 2 min read

Update Summary

This is a big update with many changes specifically around the creation and verification of 7-Zip archives and the handling of split 7-Zip archives when short dates are used. There were previously some issues around the script flagging failed backups as failed and successful at the same time.

My sincerest apologies for not releasing an update before now, finding time to focus on coding as well as finding work has been difficult. Many thanks to everyone who has supported me and logged issues and suggestions for improvements. Your continued feedback is greatly appreciated!

2024-03-08: Version 24.03.08

  • Fixed 7-Zip split files getting renamed and not keeping file extensions when short dates are used.
  • Added a verify operation for 7-Zip created archives as per Issue 33
  • Fixed an issue where failed backups where also listed as successful.
  • Overhauled the backup success/fail checks. They now work a lot more reliably.
  • Added check for the work dir/backup dir to exist before trying to remove as this caused a script error.
  • Cleaned up console and log file output.
