What happened to Easy Mode

Postby wirelessplanet » 30.05.19, 19:22

So I just did a software update after more than a year (mostly for the apfs support) and now noticed that easy mode is gone. Easy mode was great because i could very easily show the smart data and filetree to the customer as well as know weather the heads may need to be replaced very quickly with the self test. Has it been removed or just moved? I would really appreciate letting me know. Thanks.

I miss this also. Ace told me they removed it and it's only in the Portable(?) version now. Very disappointing as I used it daily to quickly check donor drives before backing up. :(

Damn, i used it too for a quick donor check. First PC3k mobile, now this... it's going the wrong way.

Exactly as SGdata wrote.
We also used easy mode for quick disk test, security or locked test and basic information.
We too would like this option to return to UDMA and Express ...
It should not be that the option that was good, was tested on us, and then it was taken away ...

Easy Mode is still available in 6.5.x Software Update for Express and UDMA boards.

Yes, I agree with all.

For amounts($$$$) we have invested in this product, to have useful functions added and then have them taken away
disappointing to say the least....

Functions and options in Simple Mode were pretty rare and incomplete. This mode was added as a test feature, then we remove it because most of the customers even don't use it.
As I said before — if you need it, you can download previous version of PC-3000 6.5x update, install it and Simple Mode will return.

I'm sure that you invested to PC-3000 not only because it had a Simple Mode. ACELab developers always trying their best to add a new cool features in the software.

If you are looking for a Simple Mode, perhaps PC3000 is not for you. You might be better off getting a RapidSpar unit instead.

True, however easymode was coming handy when we wanted to quickly check drives, for example client's destination drives or stock drives. It was saving a few minutes from our time. But not a big deal to be honest.

100% yes, It was handy to have for particular jobs.
