Recuva v1.32

In this new release of Recuva we've optimized and improved a lot with new our new internal testing systems.

Including a new portable U3 installer and better exFAT support.

The mildy sad news is that we've had to drop support for Windows 98. The benefit of this is that we can remove the old compatibility code we had to write to support it. This code slowed down the program on newer OSs.

The end result is a more compact, faster, fully unicode (and 100% Windows 7 compatible) Recuva!

The full change log is below:

  • Improved analysis of exFAT drives.
  • Added U3 portable installer.
  • GUI fixes for non-standard DPI (large fonts).
  • Improved error messages for files that cannot be overwritten.
  • Dropped support for Windows 98 to improve performance.
  • Fixed bug in language selection.
  • Minor bug fixes.

Defraggler v1.14

Defraggler 1.14 is a small release with two important changes. We've improved one of the ways Defraggler works, and we've added a new feature.

Recycle Bin emptying - It's always wise to empty your Recycle Bin before you defragment. Not only does this free up space on your hard drive, but it gives Defraggler more room to move and reorganize files for optimum speed and efficiency. Defraggler v1.14 now automatically prompts you to do so.

Improved Master File Table handling - The Master File Table (MFT) contains an index of where your files live on the hard drive. By nature it's fixed, and Defraggler can't move it. With this program update, Defraggler handles the files located just around the MFT much more efficiently, so you'll be able to access those files faster in the future.

Here's the full list of changes:
  • Added 'Empty recycle bin option' before defrag.
  • Improved placement of files around MFT.
  • Fixed incorrect defrag button behavior (defrag checked and highlighted while using tabstop).
  • Fixed crash occurring after pressing defrag button.
  • Fixed tab order on cleanup drive dialog.
  • Added Run Defraggler option after installation.
  • Added Estonian support.
