Major update: version 5.18

With skipping of intermediate update 5.17.2 we are announcing release of updated software at version 5.18. In this update, we release support of Btrfs file system. The update is applicable to all UFS Explorer software, including Standard Access.
What is currently implemented:
  • "Read" support for Btrfs formatted volumes;
  • Support of RAID-enabled Btrfs, including "mirror", "stripe", "raid5", "raid10", "raid6" schemas for both data and metadata with any number of disks.
For next software versions we discovered quite good possibility of deleted files recovery from Btrfs formatted volumes as well as low chances of data recovery after volume format (due to loss of critical information about internal storage layout).
