DFSee major 15.0 has been released

DFSee Logo

DFSee version 15.0 has been released, with new functionality and several fixes.

It is a MAJOR release, expanding the functionality of the filemanager-like BROWSE  dialog giving very easy to use access to file viewing, editing and copying/recovery.
Recovery now supports recovering complete directory trees in one go (recursive).

 

 

Furthermore, recovery of files on JFS and EXTn will be MUCH more useful when the filesystems are damaged, it will be able to reconstruct more of the filenames since it does not NOT rely on the directory structure to be consistent.

There is also a new LABEL command (and menu items) to view or set the VOLUME label in almost all filesystems supported by DFSee.

Finally, more support for HFS+, and some support for the new APFS filesytem for Apple macOS has been added (with more to come!)


Of course, as usual, there are also many 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.

This being a major release, it will require an upgrade if you currently have a registration for an older version:
