20.9.5 ‘Voyager’ released

– Enhancement: Perform network time sync when booting the USB Recovery Media

– Enhancement: Ensure more fidelity for restoring non-ASCII filenames, atime/ctime, and timestamps with sub-second precision inside TAR archives by switching to PAX format

Switching to use the PAX format causes spurious “PaxHeaders.0” directories to appear in current (19.00) versions of 7-Zip. This should be resolved soon by a new 7-Zip update. There is no such problem using GNU Tar or bsdtar/libarchive.

– Enhancement: Automatically select USB device if only one is available when generating USB Recovery Media

– Fix an issue with crashing when failing to restore an entire disk image

– Fix an issue with failing to take a VSS snapshot if Acronis VSS providers were incompletely uninstalled

– Fix an issue with Disk Image backup jobs reporting a 2048 to 4096 byte shortage on System Reserved and Windows Recovery partitions

– Fix an issue with zero files restored when selecting a subdirectory for restore

– Fix an issue with fatal “Unsupported operation” errors if a mounted volume on macOS does not support performing fsync

– Fix an issue with mixed TAR header formats causing “failed to open archive” error messages in 7-Zip

– Fix a cosmetic issue with rebranded product names in the WinRE Tools menu

– Fix a cosmetic issue with missing device name in error message if Comet is unable to determine whether a disk device is ready for backup
