Version 2.2.9 released
  * Fixed a bug when using a domain where an out of range error could happen.
  * Added the new file menu option "Add to Domain from DMDE bytes file". This allows the targeting of specific data from cluster and file lists created by DMDE.

Live CD 64 bit version fixed
  * Updated the 64 bit live CD version to fix the issue where HDDSCViewer was not installed. This also fixed the issue where the program icons were not on the desktop. No program changes were made, and only the 64 bit live CD was updated, as the 32 bit version was not affected.

21 January 2020 Version 2.2.8 released

21 January 2020
Version 2.2.8 released
  * Made some improvements for USB Direct mode flash drive compatibility.
  * Fixed a timeout bug with virtual disk and direct mode, where the 3rd party software would see IO errors when there were none.
  * Direct AHCI mode now sets the DMA mode when connecting and after power cycles. This does not really do anything for actual SATA drives, but when using a SATA to IDE adapter the mode change can increase the read speed.
  * The documentaion has been updated to reflect recent discoveries in using DMDE with the virtual disk driver for data extration. It has been found to be better than using R-Studio for this purpose. The documentaion also refers to available videos that have been created for this, and some complicated instructions have been removed as the videos provide better instruction.

1 January 2020
Version 2.2.7 released
* Fixed a bug with manual soft and hard reset timers where the time was not adjustable.
* Removed some ATA commands from normal USB Direct mode, as they could cause regular flash devices to lock up and not connect.
* Added USB Direct ATA mode for use with conventional drives.
* Made additional compatibility improvements to USB Direct mode to help with flash drives that fail to connect.
* Additional minor bug fixes and improvements to the relay operation and display output.

23 December 2019
Version 2.2.6 released
* Added a warning message if the destination is smaller than the source. This is only if the destination is a device, it does not check when the destination is a file.
* Improved the variance time test of the Analyze feature. It now goes by the zones where before it could group the reads close together.
* Added the advanced option Enable read twice on timeout. This option is meant to assist with slow responding drives.
* Fixed a bug with the virtual driver where it would not start properly on some systems.
* Fixed the analyze and smart data in the log so HDDSCViewer can read the log if that data is present.
* Fixed a timer issue with USB Direct mode that could cause a failure to be able to connect to the drive.

17 November 2019
Version 2.2.4 released
* Fixed a bug where when using generic source device mode on newer kernels, the drive names contained escaped spaces (\0x20). Also fixed a buffer overflow bug that was caused by that extra name data, which would cause the "Error! The disk is security locked!" message.

10 November 2019
Version 2.2.3 released

27 October 2019
Version 2.2.2 released
* Skip resets will not cause a stop if the max skip size is set to less or equal to 16 times the min skip size. This is a way to prevent unwanted stopping when working with devices such as flash drives.

* Internal program activation improvement.
* Improved Direct AHCI and IDE motherboard support.
