Dual Boot with eBoostr running on both

By fastest963 | January 19th, 2009 | 6:33 pm

If I dual boot and have eBoostr on both, then eBoostr uses the wrong files (cache) on the second OS.

An easy solution would be to make a settings file or something (in AppData folder) that contains the locations of each of the devices. Then when switching OS’s it would just read the AppData file on that OS and get the correct file.

I hope this can be impliemented by 3.0 release :)

    Probably the best way to determine OS is by SID’s on each partition in each cache file. I would think redirecting access calls to the wrong partition could possibly cause major screw ups when accessing files.

    Possible, but detecting a different OS, doesn’t solve the problem, it would just present a warning and wouldn’t allow dual-booting, it would only tell eBoostr the cache isn’t right and not where valid caches are.
