    DFSee version 11.7 has been released

    It is a minor release, with several fixes and few nice new features, mostly based on user feedback. Free evaluation expiration now set near the end of 2014.
    (Only the CDROM-ISO's will expire 99 days after release, end of june 2014)

    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.
