A new version of R-Studio for Linux
is available for download.
+ Data recovery speed and results are improved by using a new data analyzing and recovery kernel.
+ Support for processing of the file system journal for HFS+ and Ext3/4fs partitions. That increased a number of successfully found files.
+ Support for processing of the soft updates journal to enhance data recovery from UFS partitions.
+ Support for recovery of extended attributes for HFS+, Ext3/4fs, and UFS file systems. That improves recovery of Mac OSX Time Machine and Linux selinux ACL.
+ Support for recovery of compressed files in HFS+ file system.
+ A symlink recovery options tab is added to the Settings dialog box in the Technician version.
+ Search for Not equal string is added.
* Memory optimization for large disk scans.
* Faster Open Drive Files operation.
* Improved S.M.A.R.T. information monitoring. Different icons in the Drive View are used to show the overall HDD SMART status.
* Hard links, symbolic links, and their targets are shown using different icons.
* Scrollbars are added to the Scan Information and Parents tab.
* Improved discovery of the folder trees for deleted files on Ext3/4FS and UFS partitions.
* Created / modified / accessed time stamps on the Find/mark and Mask dialog boxes can be set separately.
* 4 digits are used for the Year field on the Find/Mark and Mask dialog boxes.
* A regular region can be turned into an exclusive one.
* An exclusive region can be of any size fitting the disk. Previously it could only be equal to the disk size.
* Some information, including drive names, file paths, names, etc., can be copied from R-Studio panels.
* Debug information can be saved not only in the fss format, but in the rdr format, too. This format includes all file system meta data, but much less in size when a compressed disk image.
* Text/hexadecimal editor: The status bar now shows the cursor offset in the decimal format, too. It can be copied directly from the status bar.
* A new forensic log file is created only when the computer configuration has been changed. The CaseName/Number/Operator info is written to the forensic log for each session.
