File-system display & analysis utility. Shows partition-tables and bootsectors. Shows all HPFS internal disk structures like Superblock, Fnodes, Dirblocks etc. Check allocation integrity for volume. Can find any data-sequence on the disk and identify the file it belongs to. Display allocation maps for entire disk and for the directory-band. Includes UNDELETE for HPFS and supports JFS.

DFSee, Display File System is considered one of the best professional programs on the market to maintain disks and volumes.
Initially born on and for OS/2, it is also extended to other platforms due to his high standards it can offer and for its intrinsic potential: where more than one tool to cope with problems of discs would be needed, DFSee combines in itself all the necessary functions in a single program, which are hard to find in similar products!

WARNING: The features offered by DFSee program are extremely powerful, and if used improperly, even inadvertently, they could result in data loss, program malfunctions, unexpected results, or even system locks. Although you are advised to use it only to professional or very experted users, it is recommended that you always read carefully documentation and description of all the features you plan to use.
