We are happy to announce the release of Update 5 for CA ARCserve® D2D r16!!!
The following new features and enhancements have been added to CA ARCserve D2D for this update:
UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) Support – UEFI is a firmware interface that Windows Vista SP2 (x64), Windows 2008 (x64), Windows 2008 R2, and Windows 7 (x64) supports. CA ARCserve D2D includes the following UEFI Support:
- Computers that adhere to the Extensible Firmware Interface (EFI) use the EFI System Partition, which is a partition on a data storage device. The EFI System partition is critical for Bare Metal Recovery (BMR). Therefore, when you select boot volume “C” on a UEFI system, the EFI System Partition is selected automatically for the backup source for BMR and an information message is displayed.
- To perform BMR for a UEFI system, you must boot the computer in UEFI mode. BMR does not support restoring a computer with different firmware.
Mount Recovery Point – Provides the ability to mount a recovery point to a drive letter (volume) or an NTFS folder, to view, browse, copy, or open the backup files directly in Windows Explorer.
Note: All customers and partners with current maintenance can download these Update Releases at *no charge* via the “Check for Updates” feature available from the Help menu within any CA ARCserve D2D r16 installation. For information please visit the CA Support site:
