I've browsed/searched the newsgroup & here to find more info about
InitDisk, updates

I see in 'dev

Curious about their differences.

If you're not participating in the newsgroup you would be well advised to generally stay away from code in the dev folder. Steve is known to create special versions for specific people facing specific problems, and they may or may not be useful for anyone else. If you're not participating in the newsgroup, you should wait for him to signal something is ready for release by publishing it on its own page on his site, and by announcing it on the podcast and/or here.


(I'm catching up on the last 24 hrs of the newsgroup and I came across this message, as an example of what I was saying.)

Does THIS release of InitDisk correctly run on your Win10
machine with the troublesome USB drive?

PHolder is correct. Those updates listed are developmental updates for NG members with specific problems. While not specifically for me, the WFTDM version did fix an issue with a problematic USB stick I was dealing with. And InitDisk became better. Testing currently in progress in the NG could result in further improvement.

Expect to see InitDisk 4.0 on GRC soon, as a result of improvements developed over the course of this weekend.
