DFsee 12.4

Post by Frank Wochatz »

DFSee version 12.4 has been released, with some significant updates.

It is a MINOR release, with several small fixes and enhancements, and many improvements in file recovery.

For recovered files, the original date and time information is now retained for almost any filesystem and operating system. For HPFS and FAT32 it now also preserves the long-filename much better.

DFSee is a very powerful disk-utility with disk partitioning, filesystem and disk analysis, some file recovery and UNDELETE
and smart imaging or cloning of partitions or complete disks.
