DFSee 11.2 released

July 08, 2012 by

DFSee version 11.2 has been released today

It has some significant new features for FAT, GPT/EFI and MAC:
- Resizing a FAT(32) partition can now make it larger as well as
smaller, so you can finally EXPAND your FAT32 partitions too.
- It correctly reads and interprets the GPT partitioning info
so you see the actual partitions, and not just the MBR-guard.
- It understands more of the MAC HFS+ filesystem, including its
allocation information so the 'alloc' command and smart imaging
or cloning now work for HFS+ too.
- FreeDOS for the Bootable CD/USB-stick has been upgraded to use
the latest 2012 kernel and disk drivers

And of course there are many more small fixes and enhancements ...

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.
