DFSee version 8.11 released

February 19, 2007 by Jan van Wijk

DFSee 8.11 has just been released with some nice enhancements!

You can finally create JFS volumes now completely within DFSee, no need for
additional work with the regular LVM program.

Much better 'removable' and 'large floppy' display and handling, including
a FAT FORMAT that can create bootable OS/2 USB sticks. The latter requires
a minimum OS/2 system copied too of course, and compatible hardware :-)

Thanks to Rainer Stroebel for much research, and creating the
eCS-OS/2-USB-Boot WIKI in progress at:

See point 6.3.2 specifically, I created a bootable eCS stick with that
today that boots to a command prompt and DFSee ... (but several attempts
with others sticks failed)

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

More details at:

Direct download links from the DFSee website:

Note: Most of these can also be downloaded using '811'
instead of the generic '8xx' version number

Or from the HOBBES website:
