Ten million downloads later...

More than a year after the initial release of the program, I'm very pleased to announce the release of DiskDigger version 1.0, which is a major overhaul of the entire application, complete with numerous bug fixes and many new features.  Thanks to everyone who has sent emails with suggestions and feature requests; I hope this release covers most of them.  And, most importantly, thanks to everyone who has donated to the project over the last year.

Some highlights in this release:

  • Thumbnail previews, both in Dig Deep and Dig Deeper mode
  • Support for many new file types
  • Much-improved support for recovering MP3, WMA, and video files
  • Previews will now show album art from audio files

...and that's just the tip of the iceberg. Check it out and let me know what you think!

The move to shareware

You may have noticed that DiskDigger is no longer as "free" as it used to be. This decision was a difficult one, and wasn't made lightly. When it came down to it, the freeware+donation model just wasn't sustainable anymore. So now, to get the full functionality of the program, you will need to purchase a license key for a very modest fee of $15.00, which is still a lot less than comparable utilities out there.  I'm confident that this price is worth the vast improvements made in the new version of the program.

In a nutshell, the program is shifting more towards a "shareware" model. Here is exactly how it will work now:

  • You can download the program, and distribute it freely to anyone else.
  • When you run the program, it will operate normally. That is, it will find your deleted files, show you previews, etc.
  • When you try to save the deleted files, the program will show a message box asking you to enter a license key.
  • The program will actually let you continue without a license key (after a short delay), but it will keep popping up the message box for every file you try to save without a license key.
  • When you buy a license key, you may use it on one (1) computer. For a different computer, you will have to buy another license.

Based on the above, you can technically recover all your files for free with DiskDigger. However, buying a license key makes it much more convenient, and is a great way to contribute to the project.
