FileSalvage 6 debuts
SubRosaSoft has launched FileSalvage 6, the suite of data recovery tools designed to restore files that have been accidentally deleted, become unreadable due to media faults, or stored on a drive before it was re-initialized or formatted. The latest version of the software includes support for custom file type recovery, the ability to search for embedded files, and a new bootable DVD. Custom file types means that a user can recover a file format that is not in the current list of supported and known types by dragging and dropping a dozen or so files of the same format into FileSalvage to analyze and process. Upon completion, the new profile will be added to the known formats.
Embedded file search support will yield files contained within other files, such as web caches or mbox format email folders. Finally, the new release ships on a dual-boot bootable DVD that will start up from either a Power PC or Intel based Macintosh.
The software requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or above (built for Tiger) and is priced at $90.
