DFSee version 14.9 released

DFSee version 14.9 has been released.

MINOR release, meaning you get it for FREE if you have a 14.x key already.
However, there are some nice new features and some bug fixes in there!

 - HELP texts added to most DFSee scripts (use  on popup messages!)

 - Easier conversion between MBR and GPT style, using commands or the menu

 - Media re-scan, get new inserted disk visible without restarting DFSee

 - Crash in R/W bad-sector scan fixed (Windows, possibly Linux/macOS too) and avoid bogus bad-sectors reported at the end of a filesystem

 - Program Update can use .WPI (OS/2) or .MSI (Windows) instead of the ZIP

Note: Version 14.8 users (or PUPPY 14.7) can update directly using the menu:

 Program Updates / Downloads ->
 Get latest STABLE update

(Works with the OS/2, Windows, Linux and macOS versions too, if WGET is there)

DFSee is a very powerful disk-utility with disk partitioning,
smart imaging or cloning of partitions or complete disks,
filesystem and disk analysis, directory/file browsing with
edit/view/copy capabilities including limited UNDELETE.
