Salvage apps reach 6.1.5
SubRosaSoft has updated all of its Salvage applications to v6.1.5, bringing with them several enhancements. FileSalvage recovers data from Mac OS X systems; PodSalvage can retrieve lost music (and other files) from iPods, and OfficeSalvage can be used to specifically target office documents. Finally, CameraSalvage is meant to restore images from memory cards, optical discs and hard drives. Both Mac- and Windows-formatted storage can be read by all Salvage products.
The v6.1.5 release introduces full compatibility with Mac OS X Leopard, but also improves shared components developed by SubRosa. The preview engine has now been made more "robust," and should more reliably load corrupt and/or large files. A new autosave option lets users conduct searches without starting a new scan, and the recovery engine as a whole is described as "more powerful." Each Salvage application is a Universal Binary for Mac OS X 10.3.9 or higher; download prices are typically $40, but jump to $80 for FileSalvage.
