Release Information (by the Manufacturer)

This new version packs new and old but improved functionality again. For instance "Extract but filter only MPEG" to extract and convert *.VOB files to clean pure *.MPG files. If you have an older 3.x version installed, you really need an update to this version.

Full release notes are available here.

2 v3.2 13 May 2013
Download Location 1
Release Information (by the Manufacturer)

Changes:

  • Support for ExFAT.
  • Find deleted NTFS files and folders during a scan for missing files and folders.
  • Implemented a "Find deleted files and folders" option, when an NTFS file-system is selected. This is a much faster scan if you're only interested in finding deleted files and folders in an NTFS file-system.
  • Support for FATX
  • Support for XISO / XDVDFS
  • Extended Master Boot Record (EMBR) support.
  • BSD partitions support.

Improvements:

  • Further improved the UAC experience by tweaking and fixing issues.
  • Remove duplicate partitions (for instance when there's a GPT but the MBR fields still point to valid partitions as well).
  • Ways to dump all sectors that are being read to log files (for debug purposes) (support for *.ibdat and *.ibadr).
  • Added .bkf file type recognition to the file-signature scan.
  • Further improved the ListView Columns' drag behaviour by working around (Builder) VCL limits/bugs.
  • An NTFS file also gets the Sparse property now when it's not fragmented (and not only when its extents are sparse)
  • Display the File's start LBA for a sparse file, except when the first extent is sparse, then "Sparse" is displayed
  • Added Full Path(s) and Start and Finish processing time to the MD5 file (as comments).
  • Ability (set via options) to store and restore the position of the main form (instead of always centered).
  • Added *.dd to the supported image files.
  • Recognize EXT SuperBlock when trying to determine the blocksize of an image (for instance a Linux made .dd file with an EXT1,2,3 or 4 file-system).
  • Improved handling of NTFS MFT embedded files during the scan for missing files based on their signature
  • Various improvemens to reduce false positives during scanning for missing files and folders.
  • Various other smaller GUI improvements

Fixes:

  • Not all *.png files were found during a scan for missing files and folders (bug introduced in version 3.1).
  • Mac HFS file systems with large fragmented files (more than 8 extents) could trigger a program crash.
  • In rare cases not all files and/or folders of an NTFS folder were found, if that folder was described in both the MFT record and via INDX records.
  • Sometimes too small files were created, when they were fully sparse (one extent, sparse (= all zeroes) (NTFS).
  • Fixed it so that the progress bar also changes color (red) in case of errors, during a scan for missing files and folders
  • Show the last LBA in case of compressed files
  • Fixed one more exception error that could occur while scanning for lost files and folders, due to buggy MS Office documents detection code.


3 v3.1 18 Dec 2012
Download Location 1
Release Information (by the Manufacturer)

Changes:

  • On Windows VISTA and higher, if you do not run in admin mode by default (UAC not disabled) you get the UAC (User Account Control) popup each time when you start IsoBuster. This is because admin rights are required to talk to Hard Drives and USB/Flash drives etc. However, in this version, if you disable listing Hard Drives and Flash drives in Options or during install, then you don't get the UAC anymore. The same is true when you run the shell command "extract" or when you start IsoBuster with command line parameters /nodrives or /nohd.
  • Support for GPT (GUID) Partition formatting
  • Also list empty card readers etc. when detected. Insert a card, hit refresh, and IsoBuster will show the content, like it does on optical media
  • Windows 7 (and higher) progress indication via the taskbar
  • Added the ability to choose how the VIDEO_TS\VTS_0x_0x.VOB file size is determined in the VIDEO file-system (Via Options)
  • Implemented extra columns in Listview (Blocks, Offset, Last LBA, Attributes)
  • List unallocated space as a hidden partition, provided it has a reasonable size
  • File signature recognition for *.cr2 (Canon photo format)

Improvements:

  • Improvements for Floppy/Diskette detection
  • Improvements for finding NTFS file systems (for instance when there's no partition data to start from)
  • Try to guess the correct code page of CD-Text on an Audio CD based on its Language field
  • Allow columns order to be changed
  • Popup to enable/disable columns
  • Store new column order, width, hidden etc.
  • Which column is sorted, and in what direction, is now shown properly
  • Once a column header is clicked to sort, that sorting order is also applied to every other folder you browse to
  • Various speed and memory allocation improvements throughout the code, noticeable during all sorts of functions.
  • Always use code page 10000 when parsing HFS, this improves special characters display such as the small TM in the top corner
  • Improvements in the detection between optical and other type media image files with shared extensions (e.g. .img)
  • Removed older Win9x / NT4 / Aspi related settings from Options / Communication
  • Introduced ability to start IsoBuster with only optical / only other than optical / both or none at all.
  • Added command line switches: /nocd and /nohd
  • Improved scanning for lost files and folders by reducing false positives for certain FAT and UDF structures
  • Exposed more settings via Options / GUI / Messages, for which a popup occured but no way to change it again existed
  • Various other smaller GUI improvements

Fixes:

  • Fixed a possible exception error when scanning for lost files and folders on +VR discs
  • Fixed several excpetion errors that could occur while scanning for lost files and folders, due to buggy MS Office documents detection code.
  • Fixed issue that would prevent ibp images files of other-than-optical media to be accessed properly at all times, because space outside the partitions would stay hidden.
  • Fixed issue that caused an extended partition to be shown as well even though it contained other partitions
  • Fixed issue that sometimes prevented IsoBuster to see all partitions
  • Fixed it so that partitions are sorted, since the partition table may not be sorted
  • Fixed issue causing multi-session optical discs not to produce correct image files all the time.
  • Fixed rare exception errors when opening certain image files where IsoBuster needed to detect optical vs. HD/Flash etc.
  • Fixed rare stack overflow error when deleting a file.
  • Fixed rare exception error when the 'Default' button is clicked in Options

Release Information (by the Manufacturer)

Changes:

  • A great deal of new extensions were added to the signature detection which happens during a search for missing files and folders. Besides a large number of various files, picture formats and multimedia files there's now also accurate detection of documents such as: *.wpd, *.sdw, *.odt, *.sxw, *.sxc, *.sxi, *.sxm, *.std, *.ott, *.ots, *.ods, *.odb, *.odg, *.odf, *.odp, *.wb2, *.nsf, *.max and most Office document formats, such as *.doc, *.docx, *.xls, *.xlsx, *.ppt, *.pptx, *mdb, *.pst, *.pub, *.vsd, *.rtf, *.db, *.one, *.wri, *.msi
  • Command line support has been enhanced with a large number of new parameters and combinations. Besides initiating "/scan" and extracting the files found based on their signature "sig:" there is now also the possibility to extract "all:" tracks / sessions / file systems, dynamically change the names of the extract-to files or folders, export file-lists ("/tree") based on a number of parameters/ tokens etc.

Improvements:

  • UDF scan for missing files improvements, so that in case of many references to VAT tables not the same sectors are read again and again, and so that duplicate UDF FS are not listed anymore
  • Updated EWF support to the latest and greatest status of the LibEWF project
  • Ability to "OK to all" on Windows IO errors during extraction to avoid X amount of such dialogs when multiple files are processed
  • Always display a message after a forced online check, even if it is the most recent version, and even if the user set not to display beta or final version warnings
  • The cue file full path was displayed in the Save Dialog control instead of only the filename.
  • Ability to build lists, showing the extents of fragmented files. [Business] feature.
  • Various other GUI improvements

Fixes:

  • Small issue that caused some DVD IBP/IBQ images to be recognised as CD, so that they could not be completed anymore
  • Small issue that caused some IBP/IBQ images with gaps to be reported without gaps
  • Fixed a very rare crash caused by a buggy UDF file system, while scanning for missing files and folders.
  • The md5 file was not put in the proper folder when set to create automatically after image file creation.
  • Fixed issue that caused the last found file, based on its signature, to be one block short in length.
  • Fixed exception error when trying to sort file extents.
  • Fixed extremely rare offset error in image files accessed via CUE or IBP, when the first track doesn't start at address 0

Release Information (by the Manufacturer)

The most important new feature being a way to create and complete special image files with different drives. This then allows users to use different drives to try to read a single CD or DVD, getting the best out of each and every drive. Often not all drives behave the same on a bad disc. Drive A may read parts that drive B cannot read but in turn drive B may be able to read parts that drive A cannot handle. This way the user gets a chance to combine the power of more than one drive and hopefully recover most of the missing data.

- Improved File handling to be able to deal with +2GB files (think DVD). This also means better handling of +2GB image files.
- Improved handling of +2GB DVDs. This change is very much tied in to the first improvement but not exactly the same. Before, the capacity (track-size, session-size, ...) could be reported incorrectly.
- Fix for 05/64/00 'Illegal mode for this track' error with some 2K/block image files.
- Minor tweaking, e.g. IsoBuster will now allow a file with illegal name (according to the OS) to be extracted

"...The change vs. 0.99.7.3 is small but a very interesting one! I found that some CDs (and thus also image files) have wrongly mastered Iso/Joliet File-Systems. Not that this is the first time I see ugly situations in File-Systems, but this is one that will (and does) cause applications and File-System drivers to make grave mistakes with missing files and directories as a result. The problem does not occur on my Windows 98 system and I guess that's the reason why this nasty file-system generator could be released in the first place.

I strongly suspect one certain company but I have no immediate prove so I will not mention the company (which Btw. I have seen make mistakes in this area before). To test my suspicion that this error must cause missing data on some systems or with certain applications I tested with several Windows apps which in some areas overlap IsoBuster functionality! The ones I tested ALL failed!! I did not necessarily test the latest versions but I suspect (at least some of them) will still have this problem..."
