Hi!
After I had made a Windows update from 1607 to 1703 (creators update) the explorer columns "Backup Comment" and "Backup Method" are no more available...

With a fresh installed Reflect on Windows 1703 the columns are available, think they are killed during upgrade process???

Regards, Kai

Hi Xatosch,

Thanks for the information. The explorer columns are provided by a shell extension that is registered when Reflect is installed. It looks that the upgrade process of Windows does not keep the Reflect registered shell extension. I will raise a case for the developers to investigate handling of Window updates that un-register the shell extension.

As you have found a re-install will register the shell extension after a Windows update.

Thanks,

Mike.

Hi Xatosch,

The functions "Restore and "Explore" are implement by a shell menu extension that is supported on Windows XP+.
The explorer columns are implemented by a shell column extension that was deprecated with Windows Vista. However, this API still works for backwards compatibility.

There is a work item with the development team to support the Windows Property System (Vista+) that provides the same functionality of the shell column extension. The Windows Property System will not be effected by the Windows upgrade process. 

Thanks,

Mike.

Hi Mike,
after some days or better weeks, without update or something else, the columns are gone... under a fresh installed W10 (1703)...
