DlShield Badge

Version: 7.9.0.18 - 11th August 2022

Changes:

  • New scan mode: Lightroom Classic
  • Added a new option "Replace duplicates with NTFS hard links when possible" to the Windows version.

Hard links are more effective than symbolic links, and they don't require DPC to be running with administrator privileges. On the other hand, there are some restrictions:
    1. hard links are available only on NTFS volumes
    2. files being linked should be on the same volume (disk)
