Doing a File=>Restore to a "Virgin" GSAK would not correctly restore the databases until you ran the restore for the second time.

All string variables used with = (equal) in the MFILTER command were not matching because of trailing spaces. This one is a "sleeper" because it has been around ever since the MFILTER command was introduced.

Clyde heeft het er maar druk mee. Er is weer een verse GSAK (major release, versie dd 12 december) met een flink aantal toevoegingen en fixes. Teveel wijzigingen om ze allemaal in dit forum te plakken maar je vind ze hier.

Ik ga hem zo maar eens installeren en dan maar hopen dat er niet ook een hoop bugs gratis meekomen...
