Just released beta 3, which finally brings the integrity check back.

The check is basically the same like in 1.x, though there were some changes:

- some people lost their integrity file in the past, because they couldn't see it in Explorer (standard setting in Windows to hide system files) so the file does not get the hidden and system attributes anymore
- with the whole zip format, the archives are more portable than before, so loosing the file shouldn't be so easy like it was in the past.

If BT cannot extract a valid Winamp_Backup_Integrity.winampbackup file, it will show you a message that the selected archive is no valid backup archive.

That is the main check to prevent loading of zip files, which do not contain any backup data.

I hope this makes sense.
