About this release
Version 4.6 of DRACOON for Windows/Mac offers faster synchronization through better utilization of bandwidth during upload and download, minor user interface improvements, and bug fixes.
After installing the update, it is not required to restart the PC.
The update to this version is recommended for all existing users of DRACOON for Windows/Mac.
Improved utilization of available bandwidth during synchronization
Version 4.6 of DRACOON for Windows/Mac includes several internal optimizations when uploading and downloading files, resulting in improved synchronization performance. For example, instead of 4, now up to 20 files can be uploaded simultaneously; when downloading, large downloads are segmented, which makes better use of the available bandwidth and speeds up downloads.
Notification when file operations fail due to no free space in a data room
When, for example, moving a file to a data room fails because the available space (quota) set for the data room is fully occupied, a notification is now displayed.
More understandable menu commands
Numerous menu commands in DRACOON for Windows/Mac have been revised in this version to make them clearer and easier to understand.
New icon for DRACOON volumes in the Finder sidebar (DRACOON for Mac)
The icon for DRACOON volumes in the Finder sidebar is now less intrusive and uses the accent color set in macOS.
The following problems have been fixed in version 4.6 of DRACOON for Windows/Mac:
Most of these problems only occurred in specific cases, e.g. under certain exceptional circumstances. The vast majority of users were not affected.
- When moving/copying a file to the DRACOON drive and then moving the destination folder, a longer delay and subsequent sync problems could occur.
- If a file was deleted permanently in the DRACOON Web App and the file had been copied with DRACOON for Windows/Mac before as a sync copy to the PC/Mac, the file was deleted locally and immediately moved to the DRACOON recycle bin, although it should have been deleted permanently.
- At the topmost level of the DRACOON drive, a folder could be created, although DRACOON only allows data rooms at the topmost level (creating data rooms is generally not possible with DRACOON for Windows/Mac).
- When using the "Create upload share" command on the shortcut menu after selecting multiple files, DRACOON for Windows/Mac might have stopped responding.
- DRACOON for Mac: On restart, the problem "The binary property list contains a corrupted object offset table" could occur in very rare cases.
- DRACOON for Windows: In File Explorer, under "This PC", just a black square was displayed as the icon for DRACOON drives if the icon size in Explorer was set to "Medium icons" or larger.
- DRACOON for Windows: The drive letter assigned to a connection could be changed even when the connection was active, causing the change to fail.
