SysDev Laboratories introduces the next regular update to UFS Explorer software family: the software version 5.2. This is the free update for users of version 5 software and is recommended for installation. Users of previous software versions (4 and below) may move to version 5.2 of the software according to terms and conditions of UFS Explorer software upgrade policy. The software is available for download from download section of UFS Explorer web site.
What's new in this update
The update introduces new features and resolutions for several usability issues. The new functions include:
Sun ZFS file system recovery (Professional Recovery edition).
In addition to ZFS file system access support, new version 5.2 of UFS Explorer Professional Recovery introduces support of data recovery from ZFS file system. The software now allows to find, open or scan ZFS volumes and recover files after data loss or file system damage. The software analyses file system for file system modification transactions and snapshots. This allows to build file system modifications history and thus allow to recover lost files from previous file system states. Because of large amount of metadata, it’s recommended to use 64bit software edition for ZFS recovery.
The software is limited to support of simple ZPOOL volumes and does not support RAID-Z configurations.
Better NTFS recovery (Recovery editions)
The software now better detects Master File Table metadata file truncation that guarantees better data recovery rate with short scan and more accurate file system reconstruction with long (sector-by-sector) scan.
Better FAT32 recovery (Recovery editions)
The software now supports deleted files recovery after cluster number truncation that ensures accurate deleted files recovery in this situation. Merging IntelliRAW scan stage into main scan stage significantly reduces data recovery scan time.
Offline network shares (All editions)
The “File open” and “File save” dialogs under Windows OS now also display “offline” network shared folders (disconnected persistent network shares). The software supports restoration of this kind of network connections. On demand it prompts for network username and password. This feature allows to restore network connection transparently when shared folder is connected under unprivileged user account context and requested by privileged user account under Windows Vista or Windows 7 with enabled UAC.
