Revert to previous version of Checkmate 06 Feb 2013 05:00 #3695

How can I revert to a previous version of Checkmate? Today I installed an update and now Checkmate constantly interrupts wanting to scan my startup disk. The previous version did not do this.

The previous version was scanning the startup disk, at times when you were not at your Macintosh.

You can remove the present version using the Checkmate installer. Use the Customize button to remove the program, then run the original installer. As far as I know, the files are all in the same places, so the 1.0.1 installer should be able to remove version 1.0.3. The 1.0.3 installer should be in your Available Downloads at the bottom of the Login/Register page. I am not sure if that has been updated yet.

The Available Downloads link now has the Checkmate 1.0.3 installer.

I found the disk Image I had saved for 1.0.1. Is the behaviour of checking the boot disk while in use intended in 1.0.3?

Both programs check the active boot volume, unless you cancel the test using the dialog box that appears on screen before the test begins. The only difference I have seen is that the dialog box lasts longer in version 1.0.3 before a second dialog box informs you that the test is about to begin. Most of the time, this test runs when you are not at your Macintosh. It was quite a few days into using version 1.0.1 before I ever saw the dialog box.

I never saw the dialog box in 1.0.1 on my Mac Pro and the one in 1.0.3 flashed too quickly to click SKIP.

Now I have installed 1.0.1 on my MacBook and the dialog box is flashing up on screen just as quickly as 1.0.3 on the Mac Pro.

I haven't reverted to 1.0.1 yet on the Mac Pro.

I'll leave it and see if it really does "learn" when the computer is not in use. Thanks for your help.

You are welcome.

If you let the test run, it will not attempt to run again for another day.
