- Fixed an error backward compatibility with earlier versions of PC-3000;
- Modified «Download Microcode» mode, added saving the type of file loaded into the editor;
- A common error handling mechanism was made for drives connected to the PC-3000 controllers. The mechanism is currently used by the ATA utility (Logical Scan in All Utilities), WD Marvell and Toshiba. Script editing is possible in the utility settings mode (ATA, WD Marvell, Toshiba). The mechanism allows you to specify a set of actions, with the possibility of a conditional transition to the next, when the successful or unsuccessful completion of the current one. For experienced users, it is possible to implement their own actions on the principle of Plugin`s;
- Modified «Performance Chart» mode:
- Eliminated the problem of «peaks» – points with abnormally high speed, which manifested itself during a scan with jumps;

- Translated to the hardware implementation of standard protocols. Indirectly, it concerns 100% of HDD operation modes;
- Replaced application memory manager. This manager is significantly faster, and, which is especially important for a long-running application, allocates memory of various size more optimally, which reduces the likelihood of memory fragmentation due to different allocation “lifetime”. The use of this manager significantly reduces the likelihood of misleading errors that show the lack of memory;
- Added the possibility to work with the alternative maps filled in a process of reading/writing. A context menu of a particular drive (in explorer) is using for a map enabling/disabling. The analysis performs in a separate flow does not affect the read/write speed. There are added three types of maps:
- Constant, based on the search of disk structure headers, file systems, and some useful file types;
- Constant, based on the analysis of «entropy», useful in assessing the composition of readable data. May be used for the parameters of RAIDs with redundancy;
- User, based on the GREP search. There is a special mode for the adding of similar maps realized, available from the main menu.
- Added implementation of combining user and supplied reference books of maps based on GREP;
- For alternative maps, added the ability to change the legend and view statistics;
- Added the ability to «switch» the «map» tab to view one of the additional maps (context menu) and observe its filling in the process of creating a copy of the data. Observing, for example, the «entropy» map, one can see that the data currently being read are of the same (zeros, pattern, encrypted …) or diverse nature;
- Added the ability for USB devices, that are not connected through the utility, to apply hardware and software resets and include them in scripts.
Virtual drive map editing mode
- In the explorer and for the RAW results date added;
- Added selection of the RAW results for the metadata file system NTFS record type MFT;
