Hello,

The 2.0 release will be coming out next week. Completely new case management system, by-head imaging for IBM and Hitachi drives, HFS support and other features will be included. More than 100 bugs have been fixed! :)

great to have the HFS support native to the software. It appears that improved imaging seems to be the targeted area at this time- is this a departure from the origional focus of firmware repair? 90% of the drives I recieve are still Seagate and Western Digital- the two areas that are least supported at this time. Looking forward to the update.

Atola Insight 2.0 was released yesterday.

Code:
Enhancements:

    * HFS/HFS+ support in file recovery and imager
    * GPT (Guid partition table) support in file recovery and imager
    * Imaging by select heads for IBM/Hitachi hard drives
    * New, easier to use disk history/case management system
    * It is now possible to copy a split image back to hard drive
    * How-to videos accessible from the software
    * File Recovery speed improvements (faster partition search, faster directory access)
    * Sorting in File Recovery
    * Possibility to select all files in File Search dialog
    * Better handling of errors when imaging by select heads

Bug fixes:

    * Automatic diagnostics sometimes stopped with "Bad PCB" diagnosis even when the PCB is fine
    * File modification date on very old FAT partitions are now displayed correctly
    * Insight now uses less memory when searching for partitions
    * Bootcode mode issue on Maxtor drives has been fixed (loaded did not work)
    * Media Scan does not fail anymore on SSD disks while working with DiskSense Ethernet unit
    * Media Scan can now handle large amounts of bad sectors (there were issues on Ethernet unit)
    * More than 100 other small fixes and improvements


warnerr:
Initially we were focused on firmware simply because at that time hard drives had lots of firmware issues. It is not so anymore, and most issues are damaged filesystems, bad sectors, head damage, pcb damage. Firmware functions have lower priority, but we will get there sooner or later!

You mentioned that you receive many Seagate and WD drives. Can I ask you what kind of issues are you facing besides 7200.11 standard issues?
