R-Studio for Mac v2.5 Build 1021

Post by R-tt Team » Thu Apr 01, 2010 1:42 pm

A new version of R-Studio for Mac is available for download
New features:
+ In-place saving of recovered files on a remote computer. When recovering data on a remote computer over network, R-Studio can now save recovered files on another disk of the same remote computer, on an external USB hard drive, for example. Moreover, such remote computer can be connected to the Internet rather than to a local network. This feature is especially useful for data recovery technicians and corporations who can now serve their clients truly remotely over the Internet and do not need to transfer large volumes of data over network. In addition, files recovered from a remote compute can be saved on a local computer or on another internet-connected remote computer with R-Studio Agent running.
+ Forensic mode (Technician version only). In this mode R-Studio generates a forensic data collection audit log that can be presented at court hearings. This log includes information about a hardware configuration on which the forensic data collection takes place and MD5 for recovered files.
+ Clickable links in Text/hexadecimal editor. Those links provide direct jumps to important parts of objects being analyzed and edited.


* The legend in the Raid control hides automatically if there is not enough space for more important elements.
* A new folder/file path widget is added.
* Validation for folder/file paths is improved where it applicable.
* Text/hexadecimal editor: hints are added to the status bar for the Stop and Auto flow buttons.
* Text/hexadecimal editor: Data view pane is better displayed.
* Menu items belonging to inactive panels are blocked.
* A confirmation message for deleting a remote computer contains now the name of the computer to be deleted.
* File names in the Forensic Log dialog box are checked for their consistency.
* Characters entered into the Rename and change all invalid symbols to field are checked for their consistency.
