RomVault v1.7
« on: February 08, 2012, 07:39:24 PM »
GordonJ's RomVault has recently been updated to v1.7.

The big change in this release is that it adds larger file support. Using Zip64 You can now store files bigger that 4Gb. It also fixes a DAT scanning issue where .DAT files are being release with a .XML extentions.

Further details can be found here: http://www.romvault.com/

Testing it now.
Since i got some files from an old / bad shape HD i get a few warnings about "corrupt zips" and i'm asked (Yes/No) about moving it to CorruptZips folder. My only suggestion until now would be to have a "Yes to all" in this specific dialog box so i could go away and let it run for years :P

Amazing utility. I understand how it works and finally an application with one run mass sorting.

Got this at error just now:

"An Application Error has occurred.  Please send this Message to RomVault Technical Support.

EXCEPTION:

Message: Bad state (invalid block type)

At find fixes I did not move out the wrong zips. Might that was a problem. Would be nice to checking zips at Fix ROMs as well.

Ideas:
- Allow minimize "Fixing Files" window as that is a long running task
- remember column width for "Fixing Files" window

You should probably contact GordonJ [support@romvault.com] to report the problem (i'm not sure he will read it here).

I also tried the tool and quite liked it to sort lots of dats, a few things could be indeed improved to make it more polished:
* had some corrupt zips and was asked about moving them, there should be a "Yes to all" to all those questions.
* since it uses a treeview to organize and display all the dats, it would be useful to have statistics for each node of the tree and not only for individual dats (eg. you're missing X of Y sets or roms of all dats below this node).
* related to the treeview, it could have a expand, collapse all and remember which ones were expanded or not when the program is closed.

Also, when rebuilding, what formats is it able to read (raw, zip, rar, 7zip)? This is just some information that would be useful to let me know if i should extract some 7zip roms i have.

Still, the tool is pretty neat and saved me a lot of time and work :)

Thanks. I'll do that. Update: post it on pleasuredome's romvault topic

This is a .NET program so quite easy to decompile and get some info how it works. Application is using this library http://dotnetzip.codeplex.com/ and looks like only handle ZIP file format.

Absolutely true.
