- Improvements to the Workspace and Home Folder workflows: now simpler to understand and use.
- New Expert feature for erasing any drive or volume to HFS+.
- Added contextual menu to Details View for quick access to common features.
- Improved recovery of InDesign, PEF raw image, TIFF and AVI files, for certain cases.
- Added support for recovering certain ORF raw images.
- A number of additional file types with no, or non-standard, extensions can now be previewed.
- DMG files with no partition table can now be found and recovered.
- Some improvements were made to improve Deep Scan results, in some cases.
- Some optional additional file browser columns may be shown by right-clicking on the table columns header.

- Activation while launched from a read-only volume wouldn’t be applied correctly.
- Erase wasn’t working on 10.4.
