• [VOICENWS] SW: DFSee version 12.2 released

    From VOICE News Service@1:3634/1000 to All on Wed Dec 24 10:46:39 2014

    ++ From the VOICE OS/2-eCS News Service http://www.os2voice.org ++

    From: jvwDESPAM@DESPAMdfsee.com

    DFSee version 12.2 has been released, with new functionality and several fixes.

    It is a MINOR release, with EXFAT file recovery support as the
    main added feature, and several other small enhancements and fixes
    (like automatic LVM dialog on creating a partition working again).

    EXFAT is a 32-bit FAT filesystem optimized for (very large) removable media like SD-cards used with cameras. It has an additional allocation-bitmap that avoids a lot of the normal overhead when writing contiguous files. It is
    now supported by Windows, OS-X and Linux, and is the recommended filesystem
    for SD-cards larger than 32Gb.

    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.
