    DFSee version 11.3 has been released today

    It has some significant new features:

    - Geometry dialog, to set a custom or a often-used disk geometry easily
    - Bootable USB stick supports up to 32Gb sticks + Ultimate Boot CD on menu
    - DFSDISK analysis will now recognize superblocks from ANY FS in same run
    - File recovery functions can now recover files over 2Gb correctly

    The menu layout was also optimized in several places 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.
