What's new in the version 10?
- Released direct access to raw disk data using a special (kernel-mode) driver. This enables you to bypass the restrictions, imposed by Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10 and Vista operating systems under standard user account. Unlike some data recovery programs, CDRoller 10 does not request administrator privileges for work with Windows drives (hard disks, flash and floppy drives, etc.) under restricted (non-administrative) account. That means you never get User Account Control (UAC) popup when you start CDRoller after installation.
- View Image significantly updated for all data recovery options. It now supports all major graphic formats (BMP, JPEG, JPEG 2000, GIF, PNG, PCX, PSD, EPS, TIFF, WMF, ICO, TGA), DICOM files for medical imaging (*.dcm, *.dic, *.dicom, *.v2), popular digital camera raw formats such as: Canon (*.cr2, *.crw), Kodak (*.dcr), Minolta (*.mrw), Nikon (*.nef), Olympus (*.orf), Pentax (*.pef), Fuji (*.raf), Leica (*.raw), Sony (*.srf) and Sigma (*.x3f).
- Added support of disk image files: files recorded in Expert Witness Compression Format (*.E01, *.L01, *.S01), Linux / Unix "Disk Dump" (*.dd) files, ISO image files (*.iso) and Microsoft Virtual Disk Images in VHD and VHDX formats (*.vhd, *.vhdx files).
- Included files scanning for particular data (content), regardless of the file names and/or extensions. With support of Perl-like regular expressions facility (PCRE library) for creating match patterns.
- UDF data recovery updated. Added the ability to separately recover each fragment (extent) of UDF file, displayed under UDF Records tab in the file Properties dialog. This can be useful, for instance, if a large UDF video file is fragmented and some damaged extents slow the recovery process.
- Examine Sectors significantly updated. Added an opportunity to examine the sectors data on hard disks, flash drives and other types of Windows disks/drives, selected for Extended Data Recovery.
- Recover All / Recover Selected updated. Now, data recovery report lists all bad (unreadable) sectors detected for each file.
- Extract To ISO Image File significantly updated. You can now create ISO image (*.iso) file not only from the entire disc (session, drive, partition) but also from the separate (selected) files and folders. As always, this option is available for optical discs (CD, DVD, Blu-ray) and another types of Windows drives (flash drives, Hard Disk Drives, etc.).
- Extended Data Recovery improved:
- Released support of popular Linux Ext2 and Ext3 file systems.
- Added support of disks (drives) with GPT partitions.
- Added an opportunity to access to the list of physical drives and their partitions. This may be useful if Windows does not display a drive as a logical one (volume) with a separate letter, but you still need to access to the lost data.
- ExFAT reader significantly updated. In addition to the recovery of files data, CDRoller now restores the lost (deleted or quick re-formatted) sub-folders on the disks (drives) with exFAT file system.
- Added expected support of UDF file system. Now, you can recover UDF files not only from optical discs (CD, DVD, Blu-ray) but also from another Windows drives, formatted with UDF file system.
- NTFS reader updated. Added an opportunity to recover the compressed NTFS files. Released a deep scan of unused clusters. That can help to locate the files based only on file signatures, ignoring NTFS records.
- Scan FAT Data updated. Added a new option to recognize MP3 files. This can be useful if you're looking for the lost audio files in the data storage, built in your voice recorder.
- Program Preferences updated. Added a new FAT / NTFS / Ext tab with optional settings for Extended Data Recovery.
- Removed the 24-bit limit of cluster address.
- Numerous improvements, bugfixes and workarounds added.
