New version WD Marvel 4 (Standard and Plus)

We are glad to present the result of a long and hard work – WDMarvel 4.0!

In the fourth version of the program a large number of new functions have been added, the main one being sector-by-sector copying.
The license is also divided into two types Standard and Plus.

Functions added to the Plus edition and missing in Standard:

  • Added tool for sector to sector copying the drive (fully functional only with a Plus license)
  • Added function for generating module 47 from module 40 (only if you have a Plus license)

With the help of the sector copy function, it is possible to:

  • create a sector copy of the drive to another disk or to an image file
  • copy both forward and backward
  • skip defective areas and read them after copying in the reverse direction
  • copy sectors on an arbitrary head map
  • analyze copied data and find NTFS objects
  • save the copy state and continue from the same place in case of failure
