DFSee 15.1 released, full HFS+ support

June 08, 2018 by

DFSee version 15.1 has been released.

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

It has nearly full support for the HFS+ filesystem now, including file recovery
functions and Browse (but no complete resource-fork/hard-link handling yet).

It also supplies more OS-related information in the ABOUT dialog like more
exact version and naming, 32/64 bit indicators and user/machine details.

As usual there are also several minor problem fixes and enhancements, see below.

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

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.
