DFSee 10.9 released; eCS AHCI related bugfix!
June 10, 2011 by firstname.lastname@example.org
DFSee version 10.9 has been released today, a minor release.
It fixes an (OS/2) bug where reading or writing to a disk larger than 1Tb using the new OS2AHCI driver would result in data errors and incorrect disk geometry being used.
Disk imaging and cloning disks over 1Tb using DFSee 10.8 and older will NOT BE RELIABLE!
Note that just the OS/2 version actually changed, for all the other platforms it is just the version number that is different.
This will be the LAST 10.x minor release. The next one will be a major release 11.0 (payed upgrade from 10.x). 11.0 will feature more generic sorting capabilities and other enhancements for the file-dialogs, and perhaps more Airboot related support for eCS 2.1 and ext4 support for linux.
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.
