• [VOICENWS] SW: DFSee 11.1 released

    DFSee version 11.1 has been released today

    There is a new feature for the DFSDISK procedure to search on
    the 1-MiB boundaries as used by many newer Windows machines,
    in addition to the regular geometry-cylinder boundaries.

    The PTEDIT dialog is updated for easier sorting and navigation,
    and the screen output during clone, restore and wipe has been
    minimized to avoid scary warnings about the (still unformatted)
    target partitions.

    And of course 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.
