  • We have corrected the error when results of raw recovery were saved.
  • Sectors block reading algorithm reaction on reading error has been improved. Now if an error occurs, it reads single sector in PIO mode.
  • FAT16 Translator - we have corrected the error that appeared when you added incorrect shift points at FAT table analysis.
  • Translator mode - LBA field is unlocked in shift points search (you can set the value manually).
  • Now folders with forbidden symbol '/' in the name are saved. It is important for HFS+.
