Atola Insight Forensic 4.1 has been released! Here are the most significant new features:

Our main efforts were put on bug fixing to make Atola Insight Forensic more stable and reliable, and version 4.1 includes over 100 fixes and improvements.

New Features
  • File recovery: it is now possible to create an imaging session that would include sectors of selected files
  • Imaging: new Metadata-only imaging mode allows copying of absolutely minimum amount of data for file browsing to work, this allows for imaging of specific files
  • Imaging: Settings can now be saved into custom presets
  • File Recovery: 500% speed increase when working with NTFS partitions
  • File Recovery: Deleted file recovery on NTFS partitions
  • File Recovery: Filter files by status (All Files, Fully Imaged, Partially Imaged)
  • File Recovery: Search now supports regular expressions, added new presets (documents, pictures, video etc)
  • File Recovery: 20% speed increase when generating file lists
  • Imaging, Disk Editor: when viewing sectors, known metadata will be automatically parsed into a human-readable form
  • Device Utilities: added Device Features: AAM, APM, Read Look Ahead, Volatile Write Cache, Write-Read-Verify
  • Generate Bad Sectors: added the possibility to write custom data into bad sectors
  • Password and Firmware Recovery: support for Hitachi drives via Atola SATA-IDE adapter (contact us if you bought your system before November 2014 to receive the adapter for free)
  • User manual is now shipped with the software in pdf form and is available from the Help menu
  • User interface tweaks for better experience on Microsoft Surface Pro 3 tablets

Bugfixes
  • Automatic Checkup: Significant PCB diagnostics improvements, Insight was misdiagnosing certain drives as "bad PCB"
  • Imaging: Head map was not correctly built on certain WD and Seagate hard drive models
  • File Recovery: a few fixes in the File Map creation
  • Case Management: Case printing was slow when there were too many reports to print
  • Case Management: Some exported reports contain invalid links to specific log files
  • Imaging: Read Long (discard ECC) did not work correctly on IDE drives
  • Firmware Recovery: Insight failed to read Firmware map on some newest Western Digital drives when ATA password protection is enabled
  • File Recovery: better support for keyboard navigation

Thank you for the quick reply Vitaliy. I did just recently read about the EOL for my Atola. I will have to see about the upgrade program.
