Jun 07, 2013Also, let me make a short list of bigger outstanding items. Higher priority items first.
a) Archival of deleted items.
This is needed, because the "Don't delete anything at destination" option doesn't make a very good default. It may easily lead to confusing error messages in reasonably straight-forward scenarios.
b) "Use VSS as needed" option.
That's an option for delaying taking a VSS snapshot until the first locked file is encountered.
c) UI for including/excluding files/directories
This is the "Include what" section of the backup settings. It's a big-ish UI coding effort as it requires implementing a file system view UI widget and that may get a bit tricky.
d) The "Rabbit hole" and "More options" parts of the UI.
That's of the backup config and the app preferences respectively - two flat laundry lists of all available options.
e) The full version of "Update available" dialog that includes the list of changes.
I am planning to do not the typical thing (http://bvckup2.com/wip/update-available-before.png) but rather something a bit more intelligent (http://bvckup2.com/wip/update-available-after.png).
f) Reading/writing speed improvements in delta copier.
This is targeted primarily at over-the-network backups when the IO latency is substantially higher and so having more IO requests "in-flight" is a natural way to speed things up.
On top of this, there's a long list of smaller UI improvements that I will be taking care of in small bursts between working on major changes.
