Authors/Port authors:

Programma per la visualizzazione e l'analisi del file system. Mostra e modifica il contenuto delle tabelle partizioni e dei boot sector, mostra la struttura interna HPFS (Superblock, Fnodes, Dirblocks ecc). Verifica l'integrità di allocazione dei volumi. Individua una qualunque sequenza dati sul disco ed identifica il file cui appartiene. Mostra le mappe di allocazione per l'intero disco e per le cartelle. Include una funzione UNDELETE per HPFS e supporta il filesystem JFS.

DFSee, Display File System è considerato uno dei migliori programmi disponibili a livello professionale sul mercato per gestire dischi e volumi.
Nato inizialmente su e per OS/2, è ora diffuso sulle altre piattaforme grazie agli elevati standard di qualità che offre e per le sue potenzialità intrinseche: nelle situazioni in cui normalmente sarebbero necessari più strumenti per gestire i problemi dei dischi, DFSee combina in un unico software tutte le funzioni necessarie!

L'uso dell'EDIZIONE OPEN SOURCE è libero (17.x) e si otterrà supporto (via email) sulla base delle migliori intenzioni possibili, ma gli utenti regolari esistenti, i professionisti e gli utenti titolari di licenze multiple hanno la priorità!

ATTENZIONE: Le funzionalità offerte da DFSee sono estremamente potenti e se utilizzate in modo non corretto, anche inavvertitamente, potrebbero causare perdita di dati, malfunzionamenti, esiti imprevisti o addirittura blocchi di sistema. Sebbene se ne consigli l'uso ad utenti professionisti o più che esperti, si suggerisce di leggere sempre attentamente la descrizione di tutti i parametri previsti e delle procedure di utilizzo.

Questo software è distribuito come pacchetto compresso, da scaricare e installare manualmente; se ci sono prerequisiti da soddisfare, andranno anch'essi scaricati e installati manualmente.

DFSee, Display File Systems v. 17.0 (WarpIN package - Warpstock release build, 22/10/2022, Jan van Wijk) Readme/What's new
DFSee version 16.x (c) 1994-2019: Jan van Wijk =========================[ www.dfsee.com ]========================== For exact version info, release date and changes see the DFSHIST.TXT file _______________________________________________________________________________ Installation _______________________________________________________________________________ The standard distribution of DFSee (dfsee_install.zip) contains all the DFSee files you will need to use it, organized in the following directories: - dos Everything needed or usable to run on DOS or Windows-9x full-screen - win Everything needed or usable to run on Windows-NT, XP, Win-7/8/10 - bin Everything needed or usable to run on OS/2 version 2.0 or newer - linux Everything needed or usable to run on LINUX, kernel 2.x or newer - mac Everything needed or usable to run on macOS (Intel CPUs only) - doc The main DFSee documentation files in text and some in PDF format with detailed information about DFSee and the commands. So, just unzip the distribution archive in a directory of your choice ... IMPORTANT: If you are new to DFSee, I recommend you use the DFSTART script to start with. It will collect some very useful backup files the first time it is used To collect minimal information about your system, to email to others, or post on newsgroups for help, use: DFSxxx -query Where DFSxxx is any of the DFSee executables (see below) It will produce a "dfsquery.log" file to be sent/posted. DFSee is a SWISS-ARMY KNIFE of disk-tools packaged in a single executable file (.EXE). There is really no need for 'installing' anything, as long as the executable can be found. (in the PATH for instance). So make sure the executable is in a tools directory or a directory of its own, and make sure that directory is in the PATH to make it more convenient. The only thing that IS a bit important is that the registration file needs to be in a directory in the PATH as well, and must be renamed to the fixed name: 'dfsee.key'. Note: If you did not receive the 'dfsee.key' as a seperate file but as part of a larger file or email, you can create it yourself: +++++ Just put the line "DFSreg='.........'" into a file of its own, and call it 'dfsee.key' Make sure the single quotes are kept in place. One way to do that is mark the line in the file or email and copy it to the clipboard, then start a NEW empty file in an editor like the OS/2 Enhanced Editor, and paste in the line from the clipboard. It does not even matter if there is more (garbage) in the file, as long as the "DFSreg=" starts at the begin of the file. +++++ Available executables: - DFSOS2.EXE The OS/2 executable, full function including REXX - DFSDOS.EXE The (extended) DOS executable, full function - DFSWIN.EXE The Win-NT/2000/XP executable, full function - requires ADMIN or BACKUP rights to access the disks! (right mousebutton, 'Run as Administrator') - dfsee The native Linux executable, full function - requires 'root' privileges to access the disks! - dfsee (MAC) The native MAC OSX executable, full function - requires 'root' privileges to access the disks! - Disks MUST be UNMOUNTED to allow writing, eject ALL volumes on the disk first! - To use the DFSee.app launcher (Dock icon) you may need to allow that, see DFSINST.TXT. INSTALL: To install the above executables for a specific platform, check the DFSINST.TXT files for details on what to download, and what to do/execute to set it up for proper usage. TIP: For optimal viewing of all the info in the DFSee displays, a wide screen (or window) is recommended, 100 characters wide or even more works very well. The minimum workable width is 80 characters. MOUSE: - OS/2 or eComstation (DFSOS2.EXE): For optimal mouse usage make sure the 'Mouse Actions' in the (upper left) system-menu for a Windowed session is NOT checked! - Windows NT / W2K / XP / Vista / Windows-7 For mouse usage make sure the 'Quick Edit Mode' in the properties for the command window is NOT checked! (this is ON by default on Windows 2000, meaning no mouse support) - DOS (und FreeDOS etc ...) Mouse support with any Microsoft-Mouse compatible driver. - Linux and macOS Full mouse support in Windowed environments, NOT the Linux console _______________________________________________________________________________ Important backups _______________________________________________________________________________ I advise you to keep a bootable copy of DFSee either on diskette, CDROM, DVD, or a bootable USB stick, for example using the DFSee PUPPY Linux based one: https://www.dfsee.com/dfsee/media.php#usb Then use an important backup command to save the current state of your existing system(s) as a preventive measure, from the DFSee menu: Mode=FDISK -> Backup partition info -> - - - All disks - - - This will make a backup of all important partition-table and boot sectors to a few relatively small files that can be used in cases of emergency to restore them with 'prestore' or using the DFSee menu: Mode=FDISK -> Restore partition info ... Use a meaningful 'filename' for each different system you backup. For extra information on the systems you could also run the DFSDISK analysis procedure that comes with DFSee. It will create six files for each physical harddisk in the system. Scripts -> Analyse disks for support -> - - - All disks - - - Note: The DFSDISK and PSAVE stuff above is included in DFSTART, so if you use that you are on the safe side! Realize that when using DFSDOS to restore imagebackups or partitioning info, it can ONLY read from FAT or FAT32 drives! So storing important recovery info on HPFS, NTFS or EXT2 file systems might not be a good idea when using the FreeDOS based diskette/CDROM with DFSee. _______________________________________________________________________________ Online Help _______________________________________________________________________________ As a command-line program, DFSee has limited online help, useful to check the syntax and parameters. The following is available: 'help' command : This will display a short introduction and a few important selection commands. '??' command : List all generic commands, available in every mode '?' command : List all commands specific to the current mode '???' command : List sector-types recognized in the current mode DFSEE -? : List available switches for the DFSee executable from the operating-system command-line. The switches set some preferences and options like windowing, using a logfile and batch-mode. (DFSEE = DFSDOS, DFSOS2, DFSWIN or dfsee). Most commands that require parameters will also display a short usage and help when called without any parameters, or sometimes when called with the parameter '-?' Finally, whenever a (confirmation) dialog window is presented to ask a question or get other input, you can use the <F1> function-key to get additional help on that specific dialog or question. _______________________________________________________________________________ Recommended reading _______________________________________________________________________________ DFSee is a rather complex program with dozens of commands that could be used. You will need some time and effort to master that complexity. All commands and some generic topics are covered in DFSxxxx.txt files: - DFSEE.TXT = A short introduction to DFSee and its concepts - DFSINST.TXT = short installation description - DFSPROMO.TXT = A short promotional text on DFSee and its concepts - DFSHOWTO.TXT = An ever growing collection of recovery scenarios and other useful DFSee usage examples - DFSTERMS.TXT = A terminology reference about DFSee and partitioning - DFSCMDS.TXT = The main command-reference with all generic commands - DFSDISK.TXT = Description and examples of the DFSee UNFDISK procedure - DFSFDISK.TXT = The FDISK (partitioning) command reference - DFSAPFS.TXT = Command reference specific to the APFS filesystem - DFSEFAT.TXT = Command reference specific to the EFAT filesystems - DFSEXT.TXT = Command reference specific to the EXT2, EXT3 and EXT4 FS - DFSFAT.TXT = Command reference specific to the FAT filesystems - DFSHFS.TXT = Command reference specific to the HFS filesystem - DFSHPFS.TXT = Command reference specific to the HPFS filesystem - DFSISO.TXT = Command reference specific to the ISO filesystem - DFSJFS.TXT = Command reference specific to the JFS filesystem - DFSNTFS.TXT = Command reference specific to the NTFS filesystem - DFSRSR.TXT = Command reference specific to the REISER filesystem - DFSXFS.TXT = Command reference specific to the XFS filesystem - DFSCRIPT.TXT = Reference for using command-scripts with DFSee - DFSHIST.TXT = History of changes for DFSee, known bugs and wish-list - DFSYNTAX.TXT = Syntax rules for DFSee command, parameters and options Background information on PC-partitioning, filesystems and some of the DFSee internals and working are in PDF files: - DFSEECON.PDF = DFSee concepts, introduction. (not a user guide!) - PCPARTIT.PDF = PC partitioning including the OS/2 LVM extensions - FSYSTEMS.PDF = Filesystems on-disk structures explained (FAT, FAT32, HPFS, NTFS and a little JFS) There is some additional material on the DFSee website including the complete contents of all menu helppages with screenshots, a HOWTO, plus links to reviews and tutorials by others: http://www.dfsee.com/dfsee/help.php and http://www.dfsee.com/dfsee/about.php And presentations that explain some background on DFSee and filesystems. (HTML as well as PDF format http://www.dfsee.com/presentations.php _______________________________________________________________________________ Known Problems _______________________________________________________________________________ - The DOS version, DFSDOS.EXE will NOT display all present volumes (driveletters) using the 'VOL' command, or offer all of them in one of the filedialogs. NETWORK and CDROM letters will be missing. In many cases, if you KNOW the driveletter, you can use it directly in a command anyway, or even use it in the filedialog entryfield to have the files for that drive displayed. - The OS2 version, DFSOS2.EXE is known to fail (abort on startup) when a virtual floppy-disk driver is loaded that is not initialized, as in: device=c:\tools\vfdisk.sys 0 Initializing it to another value (like 1 for a 1.44Mb diskette) solves that.

DFSee, Display File Systems v. 17.0 (zip package - Warpstock release build, , Jan van Wijk) Readme/What's new
DFSee version 16.x (c) 1994-2019: Jan van Wijk =========================[ www.dfsee.com ]========================== For exact version info, release date and changes see the DFSHIST.TXT file _______________________________________________________________________________ Installation _______________________________________________________________________________ The standard distribution of DFSee (dfsee_install.zip) contains all the DFSee files you will need to use it, organized in the following directories: - dos Everything needed or usable to run on DOS or Windows-9x full-screen - win Everything needed or usable to run on Windows-NT, XP, Win-7/8/10 - bin Everything needed or usable to run on OS/2 version 2.0 or newer - linux Everything needed or usable to run on LINUX, kernel 2.x or newer - mac Everything needed or usable to run on macOS (Intel CPUs only) - doc The main DFSee documentation files in text and some in PDF format with detailed information about DFSee and the commands. So, just unzip the distribution archive in a directory of your choice ... IMPORTANT: If you are new to DFSee, I recommend you use the DFSTART script to start with. It will collect some very useful backup files the first time it is used To collect minimal information about your system, to email to others, or post on newsgroups for help, use: DFSxxx -query Where DFSxxx is any of the DFSee executables (see below) It will produce a "dfsquery.log" file to be sent/posted. DFSee is a SWISS-ARMY KNIFE of disk-tools packaged in a single executable file (.EXE). There is really no need for 'installing' anything, as long as the executable can be found. (in the PATH for instance). So make sure the executable is in a tools directory or a directory of its own, and make sure that directory is in the PATH to make it more convenient. The only thing that IS a bit important is that the registration file needs to be in a directory in the PATH as well, and must be renamed to the fixed name: 'dfsee.key'. Note: If you did not receive the 'dfsee.key' as a seperate file but as part of a larger file or email, you can create it yourself: +++++ Just put the line "DFSreg='.........'" into a file of its own, and call it 'dfsee.key' Make sure the single quotes are kept in place. One way to do that is mark the line in the file or email and copy it to the clipboard, then start a NEW empty file in an editor like the OS/2 Enhanced Editor, and paste in the line from the clipboard. It does not even matter if there is more (garbage) in the file, as long as the "DFSreg=" starts at the begin of the file. +++++ Available executables: - DFSOS2.EXE The OS/2 executable, full function including REXX - DFSDOS.EXE The (extended) DOS executable, full function - DFSWIN.EXE The Win-NT/2000/XP executable, full function - requires ADMIN or BACKUP rights to access the disks! (right mousebutton, 'Run as Administrator') - dfsee The native Linux executable, full function - requires 'root' privileges to access the disks! - dfsee (MAC) The native MAC OSX executable, full function - requires 'root' privileges to access the disks! - Disks MUST be UNMOUNTED to allow writing, eject ALL volumes on the disk first! - To use the DFSee.app launcher (Dock icon) you may need to allow that, see DFSINST.TXT. INSTALL: To install the above executables for a specific platform, check the DFSINST.TXT files for details on what to download, and what to do/execute to set it up for proper usage. TIP: For optimal viewing of all the info in the DFSee displays, a wide screen (or window) is recommended, 100 characters wide or even more works very well. The minimum workable width is 80 characters. MOUSE: - OS/2 or eComstation (DFSOS2.EXE): For optimal mouse usage make sure the 'Mouse Actions' in the (upper left) system-menu for a Windowed session is NOT checked! - Windows NT / W2K / XP / Vista / Windows-7 For mouse usage make sure the 'Quick Edit Mode' in the properties for the command window is NOT checked! (this is ON by default on Windows 2000, meaning no mouse support) - DOS (und FreeDOS etc ...) Mouse support with any Microsoft-Mouse compatible driver. - Linux and macOS Full mouse support in Windowed environments, NOT the Linux console _______________________________________________________________________________ Important backups _______________________________________________________________________________ I advise you to keep a bootable copy of DFSee either on diskette, CDROM, DVD, or a bootable USB stick, for example using the DFSee PUPPY Linux based one: https://www.dfsee.com/dfsee/media.php#usb Then use an important backup command to save the current state of your existing system(s) as a preventive measure, from the DFSee menu: Mode=FDISK -> Backup partition info -> - - - All disks - - - This will make a backup of all important partition-table and boot sectors to a few relatively small files that can be used in cases of emergency to restore them with 'prestore' or using the DFSee menu: Mode=FDISK -> Restore partition info ... Use a meaningful 'filename' for each different system you backup. For extra information on the systems you could also run the DFSDISK analysis procedure that comes with DFSee. It will create six files for each physical harddisk in the system. Scripts -> Analyse disks for support -> - - - All disks - - - Note: The DFSDISK and PSAVE stuff above is included in DFSTART, so if you use that you are on the safe side! Realize that when using DFSDOS to restore imagebackups or partitioning info, it can ONLY read from FAT or FAT32 drives! So storing important recovery info on HPFS, NTFS or EXT2 file systems might not be a good idea when using the FreeDOS based diskette/CDROM with DFSee. _______________________________________________________________________________ Online Help _______________________________________________________________________________ As a command-line program, DFSee has limited online help, useful to check the syntax and parameters. The following is available: 'help' command : This will display a short introduction and a few important selection commands. '??' command : List all generic commands, available in every mode '?' command : List all commands specific to the current mode '???' command : List sector-types recognized in the current mode DFSEE -? : List available switches for the DFSee executable from the operating-system command-line. The switches set some preferences and options like windowing, using a logfile and batch-mode. (DFSEE = DFSDOS, DFSOS2, DFSWIN or dfsee). Most commands that require parameters will also display a short usage and help when called without any parameters, or sometimes when called with the parameter '-?' Finally, whenever a (confirmation) dialog window is presented to ask a question or get other input, you can use the <F1> function-key to get additional help on that specific dialog or question. _______________________________________________________________________________ Recommended reading _______________________________________________________________________________ DFSee is a rather complex program with dozens of commands that could be used. You will need some time and effort to master that complexity. All commands and some generic topics are covered in DFSxxxx.txt files: - DFSEE.TXT = A short introduction to DFSee and its concepts - DFSINST.TXT = short installation description - DFSPROMO.TXT = A short promotional text on DFSee and its concepts - DFSHOWTO.TXT = An ever growing collection of recovery scenarios and other useful DFSee usage examples - DFSTERMS.TXT = A terminology reference about DFSee and partitioning - DFSCMDS.TXT = The main command-reference with all generic commands - DFSDISK.TXT = Description and examples of the DFSee UNFDISK procedure - DFSFDISK.TXT = The FDISK (partitioning) command reference - DFSAPFS.TXT = Command reference specific to the APFS filesystem - DFSEFAT.TXT = Command reference specific to the EFAT filesystems - DFSEXT.TXT = Command reference specific to the EXT2, EXT3 and EXT4 FS - DFSFAT.TXT = Command reference specific to the FAT filesystems - DFSHFS.TXT = Command reference specific to the HFS filesystem - DFSHPFS.TXT = Command reference specific to the HPFS filesystem - DFSISO.TXT = Command reference specific to the ISO filesystem - DFSJFS.TXT = Command reference specific to the JFS filesystem - DFSNTFS.TXT = Command reference specific to the NTFS filesystem - DFSRSR.TXT = Command reference specific to the REISER filesystem - DFSXFS.TXT = Command reference specific to the XFS filesystem - DFSCRIPT.TXT = Reference for using command-scripts with DFSee - DFSHIST.TXT = History of changes for DFSee, known bugs and wish-list - DFSYNTAX.TXT = Syntax rules for DFSee command, parameters and options Background information on PC-partitioning, filesystems and some of the DFSee internals and working are in PDF files: - DFSEECON.PDF = DFSee concepts, introduction. (not a user guide!) - PCPARTIT.PDF = PC partitioning including the OS/2 LVM extensions - FSYSTEMS.PDF = Filesystems on-disk structures explained (FAT, FAT32, HPFS, NTFS and a little JFS) There is some additional material on the DFSee website including the complete contents of all menu helppages with screenshots, a HOWTO, plus links to reviews and tutorials by others: http://www.dfsee.com/dfsee/help.php and http://www.dfsee.com/dfsee/about.php And presentations that explain some background on DFSee and filesystems. (HTML as well as PDF format http://www.dfsee.com/presentations.php _______________________________________________________________________________ Known Problems _______________________________________________________________________________ - The DOS version, DFSDOS.EXE will NOT display all present volumes (driveletters) using the 'VOL' command, or offer all of them in one of the filedialogs. NETWORK and CDROM letters will be missing. In many cases, if you KNOW the driveletter, you can use it directly in a command anyway, or even use it in the filedialog entryfield to have the files for that drive displayed. - The OS2 version, DFSOS2.EXE is known to fail (abort on startup) when a virtual floppy-disk driver is loaded that is not initialized, as in: device=c:\tools\vfdisk.sys 0 Initializing it to another value (like 1 for a 1.44Mb diskette) solves that.

DFSee, Display File Systems v. 17.0 (ISO file image - Warpstock release build, , Jan van Wijk) Readme/What's new
DFSee version 16.x (c) 1994-2019: Jan van Wijk =========================[ www.dfsee.com ]========================== For exact version info, release date and changes see the DFSHIST.TXT file _______________________________________________________________________________ Installation _______________________________________________________________________________ The standard distribution of DFSee (dfsee_install.zip) contains all the DFSee files you will need to use it, organized in the following directories: - dos Everything needed or usable to run on DOS or Windows-9x full-screen - win Everything needed or usable to run on Windows-NT, XP, Win-7/8/10 - bin Everything needed or usable to run on OS/2 version 2.0 or newer - linux Everything needed or usable to run on LINUX, kernel 2.x or newer - mac Everything needed or usable to run on macOS (Intel CPUs only) - doc The main DFSee documentation files in text and some in PDF format with detailed information about DFSee and the commands. So, just unzip the distribution archive in a directory of your choice ... IMPORTANT: If you are new to DFSee, I recommend you use the DFSTART script to start with. It will collect some very useful backup files the first time it is used To collect minimal information about your system, to email to others, or post on newsgroups for help, use: DFSxxx -query Where DFSxxx is any of the DFSee executables (see below) It will produce a "dfsquery.log" file to be sent/posted. DFSee is a SWISS-ARMY KNIFE of disk-tools packaged in a single executable file (.EXE). There is really no need for 'installing' anything, as long as the executable can be found. (in the PATH for instance). So make sure the executable is in a tools directory or a directory of its own, and make sure that directory is in the PATH to make it more convenient. The only thing that IS a bit important is that the registration file needs to be in a directory in the PATH as well, and must be renamed to the fixed name: 'dfsee.key'. Note: If you did not receive the 'dfsee.key' as a seperate file but as part of a larger file or email, you can create it yourself: +++++ Just put the line "DFSreg='.........'" into a file of its own, and call it 'dfsee.key' Make sure the single quotes are kept in place. One way to do that is mark the line in the file or email and copy it to the clipboard, then start a NEW empty file in an editor like the OS/2 Enhanced Editor, and paste in the line from the clipboard. It does not even matter if there is more (garbage) in the file, as long as the "DFSreg=" starts at the begin of the file. +++++ Available executables: - DFSOS2.EXE The OS/2 executable, full function including REXX - DFSDOS.EXE The (extended) DOS executable, full function - DFSWIN.EXE The Win-NT/2000/XP executable, full function - requires ADMIN or BACKUP rights to access the disks! (right mousebutton, 'Run as Administrator') - dfsee The native Linux executable, full function - requires 'root' privileges to access the disks! - dfsee (MAC) The native MAC OSX executable, full function - requires 'root' privileges to access the disks! - Disks MUST be UNMOUNTED to allow writing, eject ALL volumes on the disk first! - To use the DFSee.app launcher (Dock icon) you may need to allow that, see DFSINST.TXT. INSTALL: To install the above executables for a specific platform, check the DFSINST.TXT files for details on what to download, and what to do/execute to set it up for proper usage. TIP: For optimal viewing of all the info in the DFSee displays, a wide screen (or window) is recommended, 100 characters wide or even more works very well. The minimum workable width is 80 characters. MOUSE: - OS/2 or eComstation (DFSOS2.EXE): For optimal mouse usage make sure the 'Mouse Actions' in the (upper left) system-menu for a Windowed session is NOT checked! - Windows NT / W2K / XP / Vista / Windows-7 For mouse usage make sure the 'Quick Edit Mode' in the properties for the command window is NOT checked! (this is ON by default on Windows 2000, meaning no mouse support) - DOS (und FreeDOS etc ...) Mouse support with any Microsoft-Mouse compatible driver. - Linux and macOS Full mouse support in Windowed environments, NOT the Linux console _______________________________________________________________________________ Important backups _______________________________________________________________________________ I advise you to keep a bootable copy of DFSee either on diskette, CDROM, DVD, or a bootable USB stick, for example using the DFSee PUPPY Linux based one: https://www.dfsee.com/dfsee/media.php#usb Then use an important backup command to save the current state of your existing system(s) as a preventive measure, from the DFSee menu: Mode=FDISK -> Backup partition info -> - - - All disks - - - This will make a backup of all important partition-table and boot sectors to a few relatively small files that can be used in cases of emergency to restore them with 'prestore' or using the DFSee menu: Mode=FDISK -> Restore partition info ... Use a meaningful 'filename' for each different system you backup. For extra information on the systems you could also run the DFSDISK analysis procedure that comes with DFSee. It will create six files for each physical harddisk in the system. Scripts -> Analyse disks for support -> - - - All disks - - - Note: The DFSDISK and PSAVE stuff above is included in DFSTART, so if you use that you are on the safe side! Realize that when using DFSDOS to restore imagebackups or partitioning info, it can ONLY read from FAT or FAT32 drives! So storing important recovery info on HPFS, NTFS or EXT2 file systems might not be a good idea when using the FreeDOS based diskette/CDROM with DFSee. _______________________________________________________________________________ Online Help _______________________________________________________________________________ As a command-line program, DFSee has limited online help, useful to check the syntax and parameters. The following is available: 'help' command : This will display a short introduction and a few important selection commands. '??' command : List all generic commands, available in every mode '?' command : List all commands specific to the current mode '???' command : List sector-types recognized in the current mode DFSEE -? : List available switches for the DFSee executable from the operating-system command-line. The switches set some preferences and options like windowing, using a logfile and batch-mode. (DFSEE = DFSDOS, DFSOS2, DFSWIN or dfsee). Most commands that require parameters will also display a short usage and help when called without any parameters, or sometimes when called with the parameter '-?' Finally, whenever a (confirmation) dialog window is presented to ask a question or get other input, you can use the <F1> function-key to get additional help on that specific dialog or question. _______________________________________________________________________________ Recommended reading _______________________________________________________________________________ DFSee is a rather complex program with dozens of commands that could be used. You will need some time and effort to master that complexity. All commands and some generic topics are covered in DFSxxxx.txt files: - DFSEE.TXT = A short introduction to DFSee and its concepts - DFSINST.TXT = short installation description - DFSPROMO.TXT = A short promotional text on DFSee and its concepts - DFSHOWTO.TXT = An ever growing collection of recovery scenarios and other useful DFSee usage examples - DFSTERMS.TXT = A terminology reference about DFSee and partitioning - DFSCMDS.TXT = The main command-reference with all generic commands - DFSDISK.TXT = Description and examples of the DFSee UNFDISK procedure - DFSFDISK.TXT = The FDISK (partitioning) command reference - DFSAPFS.TXT = Command reference specific to the APFS filesystem - DFSEFAT.TXT = Command reference specific to the EFAT filesystems - DFSEXT.TXT = Command reference specific to the EXT2, EXT3 and EXT4 FS - DFSFAT.TXT = Command reference specific to the FAT filesystems - DFSHFS.TXT = Command reference specific to the HFS filesystem - DFSHPFS.TXT = Command reference specific to the HPFS filesystem - DFSISO.TXT = Command reference specific to the ISO filesystem - DFSJFS.TXT = Command reference specific to the JFS filesystem - DFSNTFS.TXT = Command reference specific to the NTFS filesystem - DFSRSR.TXT = Command reference specific to the REISER filesystem - DFSXFS.TXT = Command reference specific to the XFS filesystem - DFSCRIPT.TXT = Reference for using command-scripts with DFSee - DFSHIST.TXT = History of changes for DFSee, known bugs and wish-list - DFSYNTAX.TXT = Syntax rules for DFSee command, parameters and options Background information on PC-partitioning, filesystems and some of the DFSee internals and working are in PDF files: - DFSEECON.PDF = DFSee concepts, introduction. (not a user guide!) - PCPARTIT.PDF = PC partitioning including the OS/2 LVM extensions - FSYSTEMS.PDF = Filesystems on-disk structures explained (FAT, FAT32, HPFS, NTFS and a little JFS) There is some additional material on the DFSee website including the complete contents of all menu helppages with screenshots, a HOWTO, plus links to reviews and tutorials by others: http://www.dfsee.com/dfsee/help.php and http://www.dfsee.com/dfsee/about.php And presentations that explain some background on DFSee and filesystems. (HTML as well as PDF format http://www.dfsee.com/presentations.php _______________________________________________________________________________ Known Problems _______________________________________________________________________________ - The DOS version, DFSDOS.EXE will NOT display all present volumes (driveletters) using the 'VOL' command, or offer all of them in one of the filedialogs. NETWORK and CDROM letters will be missing. In many cases, if you KNOW the driveletter, you can use it directly in a command anyway, or even use it in the filedialog entryfield to have the files for that drive displayed. - The OS2 version, DFSOS2.EXE is known to fail (abort on startup) when a virtual floppy-disk driver is loaded that is not initialized, as in: device=c:\tools\vfdisk.sys 0 Initializing it to another value (like 1 for a 1.44Mb diskette) solves that.
