the operating system.

Improved error handling after drive failures
After read or write errors occured with a specific drive in a jukebox, PoINT Jukebox Manager checks if the drive is still responding at all.
If a drive is not responding, it will be disabled for further accesses. This status is indicated by a red checkmark in the drive
list of the jukebox or a red light indicator in the drive overview dialog. The drive will be reactivated after deactivating/activating
the jukebox, restarting the Jukebox Manager Service or by manually deactivating/activating the drive in the PoINT Jukebox Manager Administration Tool.
If all drives of a jukebox have been disabled after failures, PoINT Jukebox Manager will start using the disabled drives for file system accesses.
It is now possible to select BD 6X as recording speed for BD media.
Moving of media from slot to an empty slot is now supported for DISC ArXtor jukeboxes.
Bugfix: PoINT Jukebox Manager did not correctly work with DISC ArXtor jukeboxes if less than 4 packs are configured.
Bugfix: Connection to HIT NetzOn jukeboxes has not been reestablished after a connection error.
Bugfix: USB drives have not be detected by PoINT Jukebox Manager when running on Windows Server 2012 or Windows 8.
Bugfix: PoINT Jukebox Manager Command Line Interface (jbmcmd) returned wrong information for media which are formatted with Dynamic Image Recording.
Bugfix: PoINT ECR Recording Jobs will now be removed from the job list if the requested number of copies has been created. Previous versions did
not remove the job if one ore more retries were necessary. This behaviour caused subsequent PoINT ECR jobs to fail until the Administrator manually removed
the job from the list.
