Recuva v1.28

Recuva now has a separate EXE for running natively on 64-bit OSs. This will allow it to run faster and more efficiently on Vista 64-bit.

Additionally - Now that the Windows 7 Release Candidate is out and free for download, we're sure that a lot of you have bitten the bullet and are getting to know it.
Windows 7 does things a bit differently than previous versions of Windows, and sometimes stores files in different locations. This release improves Recuva's support for Windows 7.

  • Added native 64-bit support.
  • Added support for exFAT drives.
  • Improved Windows 7 support.
  • Fixed browse issue with the Wizard in Win98.

Defraggler v1.11

We've made some noticeable changes to how Defraggler operates - some fun, some important.

Large Files and Free Space Defrag

First, if you use Defraggler to defragment your free space, you can now tell it to leave large files alone while doing that.

Why? When Defraggler defrags the free space on your drive, it does so to optimize the free space -- and it may end up moving large files around in the process. If you've used Defraggler previously to optimize the drive by setting it to move large files to the end of it, your optimizations may be undone.

The solution is to let Defraggler know you don't want it to move large files during free space defragmentation. Here's how:

1. In Defraggler, click Settings, and then click Options.
2. On the Options dialog box, click the Defrag tab.
3. Be sure the Move large files to the end of drive during whole drive defrag is selected.
4. Select Do not move 'Large Files' during Defrag Freespace.
5. Click OK.

Custom colors - for the Picasso in you

If you'd like to change the colors Defraggler uses in its drive map, we've added a feature that makes it possible. You can now set custom colors for each type of sector (small box) displayed in the Drive Map.

To set custom colors for the Drive Map:
1. In Defraggler, click Settings, and then click Options.
2. On the General tab, select Use custom drive map colors, and then click Edit.
3. To change a color, click the color box next to the item and select a new color. To reset the color to its default setting, click the color box, and then click Default.
4. Click Save.
