A beta version of WinHex 10.7 is now available here.

What's new?

* Two specialist tools options have been introduced that allow to highlight slack space and free space on a drive: offsets and data are displayed in softer colors (light blue and gray, respectively). Helps to easily identify these special drive areas.

* WinHex can now recover the file described in a currently displayed NTFS file record. The command for this can be found in the Access button menu, as known from FAT drives. To find the NTFS file record for a particular file (which always begins with the letters "FILE"), search the drive for the filename in Unicode.

* File Recovery by Name now offers to "intercept" invalid filenames. For example when you wish to recover files that had filenames in a non-western language, the filenames may be considered invalid by a western-language Windows version. This option will rename such a file if necessary to ensure a more complete recovery.

* The "Turbo On" script command accelerates the execution of a script. In turbo mode, most screen elements are not updated while a script runs and you are not able to abort (e.g. by pressing Esc). This make the script up to 75% faster, especially if a lot of simple commands such as Move and NextObj are executed in a loop.

* The ReplaceAll command can now be applied to disks if in in-place edit mode.

* Lower-case letters allowed as hexadecimal digits in parameters of the Find and ReplaceAll script commands.

* Including alternate data streams in an NTFS drive contents table is now a dedicated option.

* Some minor improvements.
