A beta version of WinHex 11.0 is now available here.

What's new?

* The disk cloning dialog window has been visually improved and another option has been added. Bad sectors often occur in contiguous groups. You may now have WinHex avoid such damaged disk areas. When a bad sector is encountered, WinHex can skip a number of subsequent sectors you specify (25 by default). This is useful when you do not care about some actually
readable sectors not making it to the clone, but speed is your primary concern, since each attempt to read a bad sector usually takes a long time.

* The Access button menu now provides new menu items to "explore" (in the directory browser) a currently displayed FAT directory or NTFS file record of a directory. This allows to conveniently display a directory even if it is no longer referenced from any other directory.

* The preset file types for File Recovery by Type now allow to recover Outlook Express .dbx files, to recover the two JPG sub-types JFIF and Exif simultaneously, and to recover AVI and WAV files separately.

* File Recovery by Name has a new option that allows to recover files only that are *not* marked as deleted. This is useful if your files got lost other than by deletion, e.g. because of file system corruption. With that option you will recover only those files that existed at the time when the corruption occurred and no duplicates (like previously existing working copies, temporary files etc. that were deleted because they were no longer needed).

* Earlier versions of WinHex had problems erasing free drive space on compressed NTFS drives. This has been fixed.

* There are two new WinHex API functions: WHX_OpenEx and WHX_GetStatus. Please see for a description.

* During WinHex API usage, backup creation is now completely disabled.

WinHex 11.0 Beta A:

* In previous versions, sectors on the destination disk could optionally be filled with zero bytes in case of unreadable sectors on the source disk. Now you may specify any ASCII pattern of your liking, up to 32 characters long, such as your initials, or something like "BAD " (4 characters) or "!DAMAGED SECTOR!" (16 characters). The chosen pattern will also be used when the contents of an unreadable sector is displayed in the disk editor.
