DFSee version 8.05 released today

August 13, 2006 by Jan van Wijk

DFSee version 8.05 has been released today.

This version extends the powerful HEX/ASCII sector editor to work directly
on (binary) files as well, keeping the size the same.
> From the operating system level, just use a command like:

DFSOS2 edit somefile.bin

Cloning disks with bad-sectors is improved to allow MUCH faster operation,
and will be enhanced even more in the next versions.

Searching for files in most filesystems has been made a lot faster too,
using several enhancements to the FIND command.

Several smaller improvements like new menu-items have been made and a few
bugs and inconsistencies have been fixed ...

DFSee is a very powerful disk-utility with disk partitioning, filesystem
and disk analysis, file recovery, UNDELETE for HPFS, JFS, and NTFS,
resizing, imaging and cloning.

Direct download links from the DFSee website:

Note: Most of these can also be downloaded using '805'
instead of the generic '8xx' version number
