News for January 2023

A new year, and time for some significant updates to DiskDigger for Windows and DiskDigger for Android!
Here is what's new in the Windows version:
  • Overhauled the way that DiskDigger searches NTFS partitions for recoverable files, making it more efficient and more likely to pinpoint the files you're looking for.
  • Updated and improved recovery of raw camera formats (SR2, CR3, NEF, etc.) to include more potential variations of these formats from different manufacturers. This will maximize the possibility of DiskDigger to recover photos that were deleted from memory cards, or from memory cards that have been reformatted.
  • Improved the overall resource efficiency of the program, making it use less total RAM when running, which will make it work better on less powerful or older PCs.
And here is what's new in the Android version:
  • Introduced a brand new function to search your device for lost videos, in addition to the existing function that searches for lost photos. A couple of notes and limitations about this new feature:
    • Since this feature works with non-rooted devices, it is limited to finding videos that still "exist" on the filesystem (To be able to recover videos that have actually been deleted, the device must be rooted). Nevertheless, this can help you find videos that have been "lost" or disassociated from Android's MediaStore, or videos that somehow ended up in an incorrect location on the device's filesystem.
    • Keeping the above in mind, this also means that this feature will show you "existing" videos, i.e. videos that are currently in your Gallery. You can ignore these results when looking through the list of recoverable videos that DiskDigger shows. Future versions of this feature will attempt to filter out existing or known videos.
  • Updated the app with the latest Material 3 design guidelines from Google.


As always, DiskDigger for Windows and for Android are here for your data recovery needs!
