IsoBuster 4.4 Build 4.4.0.0 – Final

IsoBuster is the ultimate data data recovery software that supports ALL types of media, including CD/DVD, BD/HD DVD, Hard Drives, SSM, USB flash drives, Zip drives, Jaz drives, floppies etc.

IsoBuster lets you rescue lost files from a bad or trashed CD, DVD or a Blu-Ray disc. Also it allows to recover deleted files from a Hard Drive, Memory card or of from flash media that Windows says needs to be formatted!

The program is a highly specialized yet easy to use media data recovery tool. It supports all disc formats and all common file systems. Start up app, Insert a disc, select the drive (if not selected already) and let IsoBuster mount the media.

IsoBuster immediately shows you all the tracks and sessions located on the media, combined with all file-systems that are present. This way you get easy access, just like explorer, to all the files and folders per file-system.

IsoBuster Features:

Fixes:

  • Make sure command line parameter /d:* works again
  • Fixed the FAT file system’s use of the FAT-table (and because of it the ability to find extents) when the device blocksize is 512 and the FAT-native blocksize is 4096 (should actually not be a real life situation, but encountered during development)
  • Fixed high contrast (for the vision impaired) for all OS and use the best color for the Breadcrumb control
  • Fixed a rare crash when scanning for lost UDF files and folders
  • Fixed a hard to reproduce hang when exploring folders in TreeView while a Search was in progress that also wanted to expand the same folder
