News for June 2022

It's time for another great, feature-rich update to DiskDigger for Windows, and a minor, but no-less-important update to DiskDigger for Android. Here is what's new in the Windows version:
  • Added support for recovering .CLIP (Clip Studio Paint) files in "Dig Deeper" mode.
  • Added support for recovering .TCX (Training Center XML) files.
  • Added a new experimental feature for searching for strings of text on the disk. When selecting the scanning mode (i.e. "Dig Deep" or "Dig Deeper") go to the Advanced tab and click the "Show experimental features" button. You can then enter the text to search for, and specify the character encoding of the string, which can be ASCII, UTF-8, UTF-16, or hex values. When you proceed with scanning, DiskDigger will display a list of sectors where the specified text is found. You can then "recover" the contents starting from that sector, up to a size that you specify.
  • Improved overall scan efficiency, as well as decreased the executable size (1.7 MB), although it was rather small already!
  • Updated multilingual translations.

And here is what's new in the Android version:

  • Further improvements to saving recoverable files back to the device's local storage, particularly on specific models of Samsung and OnePlus devices.
  • Improvements to recovering videos. There is now a new experimental feature for finding lost videos, even on a non-rooted device. Upon starting the app, tap the overflow menu (three dots on the top-right) and select "Advanced/experimental features", then tap "Start basic video search".



News for January 2022

Time for another important update to DiskDigger for Windows, as well as DiskDigger for Android! Here is what's new in the Windows version:

  • Improved support for recovering certain Raw camera formats (.SR2, .CR2, and .CR3).
  • Added support for recovering Autodesk Eagle (.BRD) drawings.
  • Added support for recovering data from .VHDX (Hyper-V virtual hard disk) disk images. After starting DiskDigger, go to the Advanced tab and click the "Scan disk image" button to select your disk image.
  • Added an advanced option to save all recovered file types at once. In "Dig deeper" mode, the recoverable files are organized in tabs, based on the file extension of the recoverable files. If you're absolutely sure that you want to recover all the files in all the tabs at once, you can hold down Shift while right-clicking in the list of files, and you will see an option to save all the files.

And here are the updates for the Android version:

  • Improved the workflow for saving recoverable files back to local storage.
  • Improved support for new file permissions introduced in Android 11. After starting DiskDigger and tapping the "Basic photo scan" button or "Full scan" button, it will ask you to grant permissions to access all files on your device. You'll need to tap the "Go to settings" button, then turn on the switch to allow the permissions, then navigate back, and the scan will begin automatically.

Here is what's new in the Windows version:

  • Added support for recovering the latest version of Canon Raw images (.CR3).
  • Improved support for recovering Adobe Digital Negative (.DNG) images.

And here are the updates for the Android version:

  • Added a new option to filter results based on their location on the device, whether the location is a folder or a large file (such as a thumbnail cache or database) in which the results were found. After the Basic Photo Scan is complete, the "Filter" icon should appear in the toolbar at the top. If you tap this icon you should see a list of possible locations and the number of results found in each location.  This should help in searching for a specific recoverable file by allowing you to select a location where the file is more likely to be.


Whether you need your photos, documents, or other data recovered from your Windows PC or your Android device, DiskDigger has you covered!

News for July 2019

The latest update to DiskDigger for Windows improves upon its general performance, as well as these specific enhancements:
  • Improved handling of compressed files in NTFS filesystems. When your disk is formatted with NTFS, individual files can be compressed (using a variation of LZ77) to conserve disk space. When scanning in "Dig Deep" mode, DiskDigger automatically and transparently decompresses these files, so that they can be recovered in their original state.
  • Improved handling of system-compressed files in NTFS.  Windows 10, as part of its background operation, searches for certain files that are seldom used and automatically compresses them. This is different from the "standard" compression that can be applied to NTFS files. This compression is done by creating an alternate data stream (with a reparse point) called "WofCompressedData" and filling it with the compressed data, which is compressed with the Xpress or LZX algorithms. DiskDigger handles all of these cases, and automatically recovers these types of files in uncompressed form.
  • Added support for recovering Quicken data files (.QDF) in "Dig Deeper" mode.
  • Improved efficiency of recovering executable (EXE and DLL) files.
  • Fixed some possible stability issues when previewing WAV audio files.

In other news, DiskDigger for Android also received an update, with improvements to its "Wipe free space" function, which is now faster and more effective than before.

News for June 2019

  • Support for recovering FITS images (Flexible Image Transport System) in "Dig Deeper" mode. FITS is the image format used in astronomy, and is endorsed by NASA and the International Astronomical Union.

  • Support for recovering SER videos, which is a video format used in astronomical imaging.
  • Support for recovering AAX (Audible Enhanced Audio) files, which is the DRM-protected audio format used by Audible.
  • Support for recovering DjVu (.DJVU) documents.
  • Improved detection of corrupted partitions on a GUID partition table (GPT).

And of course there are a few minor enhancements to DiskDigger for Android, which include optimized performance on older devices, as well as improvements to Clean Up mode.

News for March 2019

I’m happy to announce some exciting new features in DiskDigger for Windows, as well as in DiskDigger for Android!
Let’s go over the Windows version first:

  • "Dig Deep" mode has been enhanced with an option to show either "Deleted files only" (which was the previous default behavior) or "Deleted and existing files." This is useful when the disk is improperly formatted or partitioned (or if the partition area is damaged), but the file system itself is still healthy.  When you insert the disk and Windows shows an error such as "You need to format the disk before you can use it," it’s an indication of this kind of issue.  DiskDigger will now let you recover all the files from such a disk, whether or not they were actually deleted within the file system.
  • In "Dig Deep" mode, there is now improved support for scanning certain file systems that are not native to Windows, including HFS+ (used in macOS disks) and ext4 (used in Linux).
  • Enhanced support for scanning optical disks (CDs and DVDs) and the file systems that they contain, including ISO 9660 and UDF.  There is also improved support for scanning damaged or improperly-burned disks:  When selecting the drive to scan, you can go to the Advanced tab and check the "Detect disk size manually" box, which will make DiskDigger ignore the size of the disk as reported by the driver, and instead read the disk explicitly until it can no longer be read.

And here is what’s new in the Android version of DiskDigger:

  • Support for recovering Opus audio files (when scanning rooted devices). The Opus format is used by WhatsApp for saving audio messages, which means that you can now recover WhatsApp voice notes.  This format is also often used for ringtones and by other media recording apps.
  • At last, you can now preview recoverable video and audio files, in place, without having to recover them first! (Previously only photos could be previewed.)  Tap the "play" icon next to each recoverable file to show the preview dialog, then use the playback controls to play, pause, rewind, etc.  (Note that this feature is only available on Android Marshmallow (6.0) and above.)

So what are you waiting for? Download DiskDigger for Windows for all your recovery needs on your PC, or find the DiskDigger app on the Google Play Store to recover files from your Android device.
