Next likely sector

From main menu: File -> Next likely sector

Display most likely desired 'next' sector (in hierarchy) in default format

Menu item screenshot(s)


    This will display the 'next likely' sector on the current opened store
    by using the 'next' value set by any previous display of a sector.

    Displaying the 'next' sector (Ctrl+N) on an opened filesystem will
    show the most interesting sectors like bootsector, superblocks etc.

    In general, each display function will set this 'next' value to the
    sector that is the most 'desirable' to be visited/displayed next.

Log new output to file ...

From main menu: File -> Log new output to file ...

Open a logfile for all screen output to come, append if file exists

Menu item screenshot(s)


    This will present a 'file-save-as' dialog with a suggested
    filename in the current directory.  You can change the name
    and navigate to other volumes, directories and even create
    a new directory for the logfile.

    All information that goes to the screen will be appended
    to the specified file as well.

    When the specified filename in the dialog ends in a '^' character,
    the program will automatically number new logfiles sequentially, by
    appending '001' .. '999' to that filename, and selecting the first
    one that does NOT exist yet (see automatic logfile numbering).

Trace to 9 cyclic files ...

From main menu: File -> Trace to 9 cyclic files ...

Functional trace program-flow to 9 one-MB cyclic files, for DFSee debugging

Menu item screenshot(s)


    This will present a 'file-save-as' dialog with a suggested
    filename in the current directory.  You can change the name
    and navigate to other volumes, directories and even create
    a new directory for the tracefiles.

    Functional tracing will be enabled, and logging will be set
    to use three files of maximum 1 Mb in size, so the risk of
    filling up the available space is greatly reduced.
    The first file will have file extension 'log' and the rest
    will use a number extension '.lnn' with nn being the logfile
    sequence number starting at 01 and without an upper limit.

    This method of tracing is intended to allow analysis of
    crashes (traps, access violations) in DFSee itself that
    are very hard to diagnose otherwise.

Volume

From main menu: File -> Open object to work with -> Volume

Open volume for analysis ( refreshes submenu) For HD, use 'Partition'!

Menu item screenshot(s)


    On selection this will open a submenu containing all volumes
    (driveletters) The list can be refreshed for removable media
    using the <F7> key.

    Selecting one of these will open it for further use and display
    the first sector of the volume, usually that is the bootsector.

    Volume access is needed for devices like diskettes and CDROM.

    It will open a volume by its driveletter, using the standard OS
    filesystem driver.
    For harddisks the 'Open Partition' menu selection is strongly
    advised since there will be less problems introduced by the
    extra filesystem-layer.

Imagefile ...

From main menu: File -> Open object to work with -> Imagefile ...

Open Compressed or RAW imagefile FOR BROWSING or ANALYSIS ONLY, not Restore!


    On selection this will open a 'file-open' dialog listing the
    RAW or COMPRESSED imagefiles present in the current directory.

    The file-dialog has controls to let you change the volume,
    directory and selection-wildcard to allow easy selection
    of any file accessible through a drive-letter.

    Selecting one of these will open it for further use and display
    the first sector of the imagefile.

    This is most useful to open PARTITION imagefiles, containing a
    filesystem, that can then be BRWOSED, or analysed on other ways

    Using BROWSE, you can selectively COPY files from a compressed
    partition image (.IMZ), making these a good alternative for
    other backup solutions.

Menu item screenshot(s)


    This will present a file-open dialog where a .PDx file
    containing saved disk-information can be selected.

    On selecting such a file, the new virtual disk will be
    created with equal size and geometry, and the saved sectors
    from the .PDx file will be loaded into the virtual disk.

    When matching .SNx/.BNx or .IMx files are present, these will
    be imported or restored to the new virtual disk automatically.

    This is extremely useful to create a virtual copy of an
    existing disk for partitioning or recovery experiments.

    The results of the DFSDISK script are ideal candidates to
    be used as templates for a new virtual disk (DFSDISK?.*)

    A VIRTUAL disk only exists within memory in DFSee, and can be
    used to analyse a setup or test many partitioning and recovery
    scenarios without any risk of damaging the real disk.

    Note: Since the whole virtual disk is kept in main memory, some
          commands like WIPE, CLONE and imaging are not practical to
          use on them, they would fill all available memory ...

Menu item screenshot(s)


    This will present a dialog where the size of of the new virtual
    can be specified using either CHS-geometry based values or a
    direct size in binary megabytes or gigabytes (MiB/GiB).

    The default for the size unit is MiB. Example values:

          800                ;will create an 800 Mib virtual
          117,g              ;will create an 117 GiB virtual
          3748,c             ;3748 cylinder disk, default geometry
          3748,c 128 32      ;3748 cylinders, 128 heads, 32 sectors

    When left blank, the disk will be modelled after the currently
    selected disk, with the same size and geometry.

    The virtual disk will be completely empty after creation.

    A VIRTUAL disk only exists within memory in DFSee, and can be
    used to analyse a setup or test many partitioning and recovery
    scenarios without any risk of damaging the real disk.

    of any file accessible through a drive-letter.

    For a VBox BASE VDI, this will add it as a new DISK, from
    which you can select a partition, and start a BROWSE session.

    For a (matching) SNAPSHOT VDI, it will automatically ADD this
    to the corresponding BASE VDI disk. To add a complete virtual
    disk, you should first open the BASE VDI, then all snapshots
    in the correct order, oldest to newest.

    When a snapshot VDI selected does NOT match any of the already
    opened BASE VDI disks, it will be opened as if it was a BASE

    This will remove the selected 'disk' from the list of partionable media.

    Partionable media, known as 'disks' within DFSee, can be listed using
    the 'media' command or the menu-item 'Display -> Partionable Media'.

    Every item listed is considered a 'disk' so its partitions can
    be displayed, analysed and worked on.

    The DETACH action will remove one 'disk' from that list, making it
    unavailable for other DFSee functions until you attach it again.

    By default, at DFSee startup all physical disks will be attached,
    and on exit all disks will be detached automatially.

                      an Image filename and/or details on the medium

    All entries in this table can be used as a 'disk' in the many
    DFSee commands that deal with them, and these are also listed
    in the default partition and MAP displays in DFSee.

    Note that the 'Disk-id' is really a 'Partionable Medium Id',
