DFSee version 15.5 has been released

December 23, 2018 by

DFSee version 15.5 has been released.

MINOR release, meaning you get it for FREE if you have a 15.x key already.

Introduces DISK IDENTIFICATION strings, used with the 'media' and 'disklist'
commands as well as in the description on all disk-selection menus/lists.
This shows the disk brand/type and possibly other info as known by the
opeating system and avoids picking the wrong disk for an operation.


It has other nice improvements in several other areas too:

- Automatic default 'single file' or multiple-files' in the IMAGE dialog
based on target filesystem (FAT and HPFS multiple, rest single-file)

- Current DATE appended to log filenames, using trailing '~' character

- A specific PROFILE script filename can be specified on startup

- Entryfields default to OVERWRITE mode for small fields, INSERT on others
and typing inside a 'marked' area in the fields erases that mark first

As usual there are also several minor problem fixes and enhancements.
For details, see below.


Note: Version 14.8 (or later) users can update directly using the menu:

Program Updates / Downloads ->
Get latest STABLE update

(Works with the OS/2, Windows, Linux and macOS versions, if WGET is there)

DFSee is a very powerful disk-utility with disk partitioning, smart imaging
or cloning of partitions or complete disks, HEX/binary disk or file editing,
filesystem and disk analysis, directory/file browsing with edit/view/copy
capabilities and much more ...
