DFSee 16.1 http://www.os2world.com/past-news/80-software/22524-dfsee-16-1.html DFSee Logo

DFSee version 16.1 has been released, with some new functionality and fixes. 

MINOR release, meaning you get it for FREE if you have a 16.x key already. 


It adds a few refinements for the APFS and HFS+ macOS filesystems, most notably the support for hardlinks, allowing restoring files from TimeMachine backups. 

Also a long standing BUG in the FileDialogs on the macOS/Linux platform was fixed, where inconcistencies (like a bad symlink) caused files/directories to go missing. 

Then the FileDialogs as well as the DFSee filesystem BROWSER have a setting to either SHOW or HIDE any hidden files (.filenames, or HIDDEN/SYSTEM attr) this setting can be toggled in the new SET menu, or using the  key in the FileDialog or Browser, resulting in an immediate update of the filelist. 

Finally, all of the SETTINGS for DFSee and the UI, which used to be submenus in the 'Edit' menu, are now located it its own 'Set' main menu, and the TOGGLE options on those menus can be operated with either ENTER or SPACE, keeping the menu item visible, so you get direct visual feedback in the form of a checkmark. 


Of course, as usual, there are also smaller improvements and bug fixes. 

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

It will require an upgrade if you currently have a registration for an older version:
