A beta version of WinHex 10.9 is now available here.

What's new?

* The directory browser now has context menu with commands for opening a file or directory, exploring a directory, locating the beginning of a file or directory on the disk, locating the corresponding directory entry or file record (respectively), listing the allocated clusters, and for easily recovering a lost or existing file or directory. The latter can recreate entire directory structures.

* When an NTFS file record is displayed on the screen, the Access button menu's Recover command is now also available if the file record defines a directory.

* WinHex now supports extremely high screen resolutions with up to 128 lines (instead of 64) and 256 bytes per line (instead of 128) at maximum.

* The maximum physical disk and logical drive size supported by WinHex is now approx. 2,000 instead of 1,000 GB.

* Restrictions with respect to resizability of the main window and the edit windows have been lifted.

* A display bug was fixed that occured under certain conditions when moving other windows over edit windows in WinHex.

* The commands "Simultaneous Search" and "Drive Contents Table" now have their own toolbar buttons.

* The "Parameter is incorrect" error that occurred in some configurations when reading or writing disk sectors should be even more rare now. (since v10.82 SR-1)

* An error was fixed that occurred when restoring a multiple-volume backup to drive other than the original drive. (since v10.82 SR-1)

* Several minor improvements.

Please report errors to or right here. Thank you.

Beta D:

* On NTFS drives, the directory browser now lists all deleted files on the drive of which traces can still be found conveniently in a dedicated virtual folder "Lost & Found". These are the same files that are also recoverable using File Recovery by Name with the "thorough search" option disabled.

* Scripts: Optionally, you may now pass a second parameter with the Open command that defines the edit mode in which to open the file or media ("in-place" or "read-only"). No such parameter means default edit mode (as before).

Beta E:

* There is a new specialist tools menu command "Media Details Report" that lets you view and copy the information about the currently active disk shown in the details panel and more. For physical hard disks this report shows details for each partition and even points out unallocated gaps on a disk between existing partitions.

* There is another specialist tools menu command that gathers unused inter-partition space on a hard disk in a file, for quick inspection if something is hidden there or left from a prior partitioning.
