News for January 2018

It's time for some more significant updates to the Windows and Android versions of DiskDigger! Here is what's new in the latest version of DiskDigger for Windows:

  • Revamped and improved support for scanning disk images. Ideal for professional forensic analysis, as well as personal recovery of disk images, all of these types of disk images are supported:
    • E01 and EWF images (Expert Witness Format) saved by EnCase and various other tools. If the image is broken into multiple segments (E01, E02, etc.), just open the E01 segment and DiskDigger will detect the other segments automatically, as long as they are in the same folder.
    • VMDK images, used by VMware.
    • VDI images, used by VirtualBox.
    • VHD images, used by Microsoft VirtualPC.
    • Plain 'dd' raw images.
  • Open any of the above disk image types by launching DiskDigger and clicking the Advanced tab, where you should see the option to scan a disk image. Once you select the image file, the type of the image will be detected automatically.
  • E01 files themselves can now be recovered in "dig deeper" mode.
  • Support for recovering FLIF (Free Lossless Image Format) images.
  • Improved support for recovering .TAR.GZ archives.

The Android version of the DiskDigger app now has the following updates:

  • Improved support and compatibility with Android Oreo.
  • Fixed some potential issues when saving recoverable files to an external SD card. Previously it was possible to see "access denied" errors when saving files to an SD card, which was due to incorrect usage of Android's SAF (Storage Access Framework).
  • Improved ability to permanently delete individual files from Basic Scan results. It's currently not possible to delete files from a Full (rooted) scan, but this is planned for a future update.
