[Arca Noae] Checked your disk lately?

Sat, 20151205 - 09:52 -0600

Arca Noae has posted a new item, 'Checked your disk lately?'

Mysterious boot problems can be caused by a variety of things from failing
hardware to software misconfiguration. Besides regular file backups, saving your
disk partitioning can be a big help during recovery (or reconstruction onto a
new drive). Fixing an odd problem, such as the once-in-a-lifetime file with an
impossible character in the name which [...]

DFSee version 13, corrected buy-now link

Thu, 20151203 - 05:07 -0600

FYI,

There was a minor typo in the link to the DFSee 'buy now' page in my previous announcement.

>This being a major release, it will require an upgrade if you currently
>have a registration for an older version:
>
> ww.dfsee.com/dfsee/buynow.php


The correct link to the info on how/where to upgrade or buy new are at:

www.dfsee.com/dfsee/buynow.php


Note that both shop sites, Arca Noae and Mensys may need a few days to
have the version-13 information updated.

However, all keys issued after the 1st of august 2015 have been and will be
valid for version 13, so you can already upgrade now, before the sites have been
completely updated.

(and if you DID upgrade after the 1st of august, no need to upgrade again now :)

DFSee 13.0 released: full GPT support

Wed, 20151202 - 13:52 -0600

DFSee version 13.0 has been released, with new functionality and several fixes.

It is a MAJOR release, and the first with FULL support for the GPT partitioning
style as used on the MAC and on newer Windows or Linux systems with either very
large disks or an UEFI type BIOS.

All well known DFSee operations are possible with GPT disks, including create
and delete of partitions, resizing and move or copy of partition, even between
MBR-style and GPT-style disks.

Of course, as usual, there are also several smaller improvements and bug fixes.

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.


This being a major release, it will require an upgrade if you currently
have a registration for an older version:

ww.dfsee.com/dfsee/buynow.php


More details at:
www.dfsee.com/dfsee/

Direct download links from the DFSee website:
