DFSee 15.2 released; more mouse/clipboard support

DFSee Logo

DFSee version 15.2 has been released. 

MINOR release, meaning you get it for FREE if you have a 15.x key already. 


However, it is a rather major update for user-interface in regard to
mouse-marking and full clipboard support on all platforms. For example: 

 - Simply use Ctrl-V to paste a (full path and) filename into a the file dialog
 - Copy contents from a DFSee entryfield with Ctrl-C, paste to another with Ctrl-V
 - Mark a range of bytes in the HEX-editor, and paste it into another sector
 - Mark an area in the output-window with Ctrl-C, then paste it into a support email
 - Mark part of a message window (or use Ctrl+A for ALL), copy it to the clipboard
 with Ctrl-C, then paste it into an email or text document 

Note:
Keyboard alternative keys like Alt-C/Alt-V and mouse like Ctrl-Click/Alt-Click
are available for clipboard support as well, see the help pages for details.
(for example: press  3 times, and page-down to item #100) 



As usual there are also several minor problem fixes and enhancements,
like a new option on the GPT command to change the partition name and
an improved FINDMFT/FIXBOOT for NTFS recovery. For details, see below. 



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

 Help->
 Program Updates / Downloads ->
 Get latest STABLE update 

(Works with the OS/2, Windows, Linux and macOS versions, 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.
