This is the 7th PUBLIC BETA of AmiSystemRestore.

AmiSystemRestore aims to give AmigaOS4 a similar ability to Window's very useful
System Restore.  What it does is create Restore Points, which act as snapshots
of your SYS:  partition (where the OS is stored).  If anything changes on your
SYS:  partition, then you can roll it back to the time of the snapshot.

Why would you want to undo changes to your SYS:  partition?  Well, if you
install a new program (or update an existing one), you have no idea if any new
libraries (or other changes) will have problems that may break existing
programs.  A badly written installer might even replace libraries (etc) with
older versions!

AmiSystemRestore allows you to undo ALL recent changes (whether or not they were
done by the installer), and return SYS:  to an earlier point in time.
Knowledgable users can be more selective about which changes are undone, with
the warning that they need to know what they are doing!

If you are installing something using AmiUpdate or the official Installer
system, then AmiSystemRestore will automatically create Restore Points for you
(and Ringhio messages should notify you of this).

This is a PUBLIC BETA of AmiSystemRestore.  But as no stability problems have
been reported (despite more than a year of public use), I will probably be
making it non-beta within the next few releases.  Thank you to everyone who has
tested it.

Recent changes:
* BUG: Fixed a nasty bug, where a (deleted/changed) soft link in the Sys:
partition to a folder somewhere, could cause AmiSystemRestore to delete
everything inside that folder.  This could easily happen if RunInUAE was
installed on Sys:.
* BUG: The GUI would crash if you attempted to manually delete a restore point
which contained a soft link.
