    Thanks. Smooth upgrade as usual - no restart requested (but I did it anyways).


    You specifically did not mention ransomware shield? It was in initial program-sent changelog. I hope it will be activated soon :)

    Installed on both Windows 7 and Windows 10 machines without a hitch.


    I've noticed the UI seems to launch much more quickly, but I'm not sure if that's anything to do with the app, or whether it's because I've recently changed my old, and rather full, hard drive for a new SSD drive, which now has plenty of space on it.


    Just one other comment - this is the only place I've seen snow this year!  Smiley Very Happy

    Probably it comes today only (with one of updates). Otherwise -> I also did not notice any notification about any of applications (and settings menu changes). :)


    Then -> when I read this topic -> I did 'baggy' configuration and it was possible to see pretty much prompts.

    Sounds cool -> but maybe it may be useful to receive some more information like:

    • which ones files was attempted to be modified;
    • what is modification (delete, modify, move or just access);

    and some ask-words to clarify:

    • allow-button is allowing this certain application, but is it possible to allow access to certain files only (?);
    • description with words that "Unknown" applications will be restricted with tries to access. But does it indeed only unknown applications?

    Sorry for my feedback.

    Dear beta-users,


    as you have noticed, ransomware protection is enabled, but a bit too soon. We will release TP209 today and it is possible, that issues you have seen so far does not exist anymore in TP209.
    As much as we love to have feedback from you, please be patient a little while more. Also would you be so kind to doublecheck all findings in TP209, thank you :)
