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

    From: jvwDESPAM@DESPAMdfsee.com

    DFSee version 12.5 has been released.

    It is a MINOR release, with several small fixes and enhancements,
    plus improvements in file recovery, mainly for Linux and OSX.

    In the online help and the DFS*.txt files all the options (like '-d:nr') have been sorted alphabetically now, making them easier to find if there are many.

    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.
