SubRosaSoft today shipped FileSalvage 5.1, a Universal Binary version of its application for data recovery. The software offers tools designed to restore files that have been accidentally deleted, have become unreadable due to media faults, or were stored on a drive before it was re-initialized or formatted. FileSalvage is device- and file system- independent, allowing the users to recover files from a normal Mac OS hard drive, USB key, Linux disk, Windows drive, Mac/Windows BootCamp drive, FLASH card, scratched CD, and almost any other media or file system that can be recognized in Mac OS X. In addition, FileSalvage is now available on a dual-boot CD, allowing users to boot both PowerPC and Intel-based Macs (ranging from G4s to the latest Mac Pro). It is available for $80 ($10 more for CD) and runs on Mac OS X 10.3.5 or later. Upgrades are $30. The company also released updated versions of PodSalvage 5.1, CameraSalvage 5.1, and OfficeSalvage 5.1 for native performance on Intel-based Macs. All three utilities are $40 ($10 more for CD) each or are available as a $15 upgrade to previous owners.
