DFSee 10.1 released; Bootable USB-stick support!
January 04, 2010 by eComstation@dfsee.com
DFSee version 10.1 has been released today, a minor release with major new usability in the form of a bootable USB stick!
DFSee itself just has a few fixes and updates,
There are instructions now, and a supporting image file to create a BOOTABLE USB stick, that allows booting to FreeDOS with DFSDOS or to a Linux desktop to use DFSee linux. In both cases there is access to the memory stick to store logfiles, DFSDISK result files and even images ...
This bootable option should make it a lot easier to run DFSee on newer hardware like netbooks that may not have a CDROM or diskette drive.
It also allows you to carry DFSee with you all the time :-)
DFSee is a very powerful disk-utility with disk partitioning, filesystem and disk analysis, some file recovery and UNDELETE and smart imaging or cloning of partitions or complete disks.
