Software Update: IsoBuster 3.6




Smart Projects IsoBuster version 3.6 has been released. This program specializes in reading bad or damaged CDs and DVDs, and in many cases even recover files that are no longer recognized by Windows. Another strong point of IsoBuster is that it can read almost any conceivable CD or DVD image format, such as * .iso, * .bin, * .img, * and * .ccd .nrg. The program is largely free, only some advanced features are only accessible for paying users. What they are exactly is on this page to find. Since version 3.0, the program can also handle other internal and external storage devices such as hard drives, USB sticks and memory cards. The changelog for this release shows the following changes and improvements:

Changes / New:
Support for the Linux EXT filesystem
Support for Rimage mastered CD / DVD discs with manifest file
Support for Nintendo GameCube filesystem
Support for GEMDOS / Atari – ST variant FAT12-16
Support for High Sierra on CD-ROM (the predecessor to ISO9660)
Implemented internal device caching Especially used consistently Filesystem recognition. Many file systems start from similar addresses. Caching Avoids having to re-read blocks for every file system that’s checked
Detect if the Nintendo Wii filesystem is present and show an icon for it (*)
Detect if the romfs Linux filesystem is present and show an icon for it (*)
Detect if the Unix / Linux JFS filesystem is present and show an icon for it (*)
Detect if the Unix / Linux ZFS file system is present and show an icon for it (*)
Detect if the Unix / Linux Minix file system is present and show an icon for it (*)
Detect if the Linux btrfs filesystem is present and show an icon for it (*)
Detect if the Linux squashfs filesystem is present and show an icon for it (*)
Detect if the Cramfs Linux filesystem is present and show an icon for it (*)
Detect if the Linux BeFS (BFS) file system is present and show an icon for it (*)
Detect if the refs Microsoft file system is present and show an icon for it (*)
New and much faster way to find deleted files and folders in an NTFS file system
(*) Full exploration of this file system is not implemented but now an investigator can see if it is present Improvements:

Additional tests to make sure a child flyer does not have subfolders That Are a parent folder, creating circular left, buggy or recovered filesystems
Added a ‘Paranoid fashion a when creating managing IBP / IBQ image files, to make sure all data is flushed to the destination system without caching, and structures are updated Regularly
Allow to complete a managed image file from media or the layout-which does not fully match, but the risk is manageable [Professional]
Allow to complete a managed image file from another non-managed image file [Professional]
Improved speed When updating the IBP managed image file
Added various extraction type switches via the command line : / ET: A, IBP, WAV, RAW, R2U, RUN, DLL
Added new filesystem switches via the command line : / EF: see the newly Implemented various filesystems
Added Pinnacle Studio mastered DVDs to the IFO / VOB recognition sequence (“PCLE UDFLib”)
Added ability (via right mouse click) to see the properties-window text as text in a memo field (for easy copy and paste)
Support for underscores in function names in the libewf.dll , So THAT Borland bcc32 built dlls can be used as well
Always display File Name: Stream Name, with or without [ADS] appended, for NTFS Alternate Data Streams
Removed registration nag dialog When doing a surface scan on BD media
Improvements in the Extract From-To functionality, dialog and warnings
Make sure testing for encrypted partitions only happens once, not every time the visual node is created (eg When switching devices in GUI)
Do not read additional blocks to test for partition encryption if there are enough cached blocks
Updated the “Agent” string When doing an online query to check for a new version, to be more compatible with modern servers and systems
Reverse the order or AVDP parsing, LBA 512 first rather than 256 first, in case of a CeQuadrat made UDF disc to deal with CeQuadrat UDF bugs
Get the proper volume especially for CeQuadrat made UDF CD-R discs
After an image file HAS BEEN made, save its filename to the recently opened image files, so That It can be opened Immediately from the recent image files’ list
Improved .GI image file interpretation, Ik improvements in finding the header size
Show files and folders with the System property in another color
Show special files, file entries That Are not used in the classical way by Unix / Linux filesystems, in another color
Show Windows overlay icons and add the shortcut overlay icon to EXT symbolic link files
Added checkbox to options to uncheck using CD text in filenames, When audio tracks are extracted
The file exists dialog now ook Allows to auto-rename a file, Instead of over-writing or ignoring the file (non-Windows file systems allow duplicate but caps-sensitive names in the same folder)
New dialog to auto-rename filenames That Are Illegal in Windows but OK in other non-Windows filesystems
Auto-rename folders, constantly extraction, whenthey contain illegal Windows filename characters or a Windows reserved file / folder name.
Show Endianess in UFS, XFS, ISO and Squashfs and other file system properties
Improvements in drag & drop functionality and the use of the temporary folder. Better clean up afterwards
Possibility to always get the RETRY SELECT ABORT error dialog (INSTEAD OF RETRY ommit ABORT) on file extraction
Various improvements, changes and re-writes in the core code / engine, as this is a living project and to deal with the ever growing new functionality
Various GUI improvements

Fixed GUI issue That Caused incorrect values ​​to be displayed in certainement error messages
Fixed possible hang When EWF image files are loaded
Fixed That sometimes the sanitizing part after finding missing files and folders on a FAT volume could take “forever”, due to bad FAT records
Fixed data corruption issue, Introduced in 3.5, while extracting files with more than 10 extents (fragments would be extracted in the wrong order)
Fixed it so That When an IBP / IBQ is made twice in a row from the same media (without a refresh) the bitmap is still fully written out to the IBP
Avoid exception error on bath IBP without (enough) bitmap data (rare test case)
Fixed extraction of named streams of an NTFS folder (not file)
