- Released support of exFAT (Extended File Allocation Table), a new Microsoft 64-bit file system optimized for flash drives.
- Added an ability to create and manage an own image file. Key features:
- allows to use many different drives on the different computers to read the bad disc (CD, DVD or Blu-ray one), adding the data that each new drive can read.
- skips the sectors that have been successfully read before.
- extremely increases a reading speed if you manage your disc many times.
- works with audio and mixed (data + audio) CDs too.
- Added an ability to get a few copies of Recover DVD Video option, running CDRoller from the Command Line with "/rdv" and "/drive letter" parameters. For example, CDRoller.exe /rdv /d . That allows to work with a several drives simultaneously and speed up the data recovery if you have a lot of problem DVD-video discs.
- Examine Sectors significantly updated. Added an ability to apply External Hex Editor for detailed analysis of sectors data on CD, DVD or Blu-ray discs. If you're constantly using a professional hex editor (WinHex, Hex Workshop, HxD, etc.) for engineering purposes, you can now connect it to CDRoller and review the sectors data in the most suitable manner. Moreover, if you've created CDRoller Image before, all changes in the sectors data saved by external editor will modify the image file. Further, you can recover files/folders, or extract a whole track(s), or create ISO Image File, and then burn a new disc with modified data. In other words, you have now an opportunity to edit as disc files as separate sectors without leaving CDRoller!
