DFSee version 14.8 released

Friday September 08, 2017  By: Jan van Wijk

DFSee version 14.8 has been released.

MINOR release, meaning you get it for FREE if you have a 14.x key already.
However, there are some nice new features and some bug fixes in there!

- HEX editor update for a fixed 16x32 size (activate/toggle with Alt-T/Ctrl-F2)

- More control over color usage, with new 'set palet' command / menu-items

- More color tuning and key-definitions for various Linux terminal programs


The Linux bootable USB stick DFSee-PUPPY has been updated to 14.8 too
See the screenshots and additional info at:

Note: existing users of the PUPPY stick can update directly using the menu:

Program Updates / Downloads ->
Get latest STABLE update

(May work with the regular OS/2, Linux and macOS versions too, if WGET is there)


DFSee is a very powerful disk-utility with disk partitioning,
smart imaging or cloning of partitions or complete disks,
filesystem and disk analysis, directory/file browsing with
edit/view/copy capabilities including limited UNDELETE.
