Okay so I just went to download DiskDigger (http://dottech.org/freeware-reviews/8643). The download came out to be 193 KB. That made me a bit suspicious because I don't remember the program being 193 KB big. I thought may the download link was broken. So I went to the developer's website; it seems to be down. I thought to myself "okay I will download it from other places like Download.com or Softpedia". I go to Download.com and find DiskDigger. To my surprise it is now listed as "free to try, $15 to buy". Is DiskDigger no longer freeware? I was (is) a brilliant file recovery tool and $15 really isn't much but still, I am curious to know if the deveoper decided to make it shareware.

Looks to me like it may have happened when it graduated to 1.x.

Edit: found a free old one. Download now!

Edit 2: read this.

It's offline, but Google Cache has it.

Oh, the site that was :(

Your search – cache:eAHEbsQIeZwJ:diskdigger.org/node/16 http://diskdigger.org/node/16 – did not match any documents.

The version of portablefreeware.com is 0.8.3 which is the same I found in my software folder from 2009.

I read here

http://www.321download.com/LastFreeware/page40.html#DiskDigger

that it's the last freeware one before shareware v.1…

 

P.S. The rest of people who dont have it, go get it now before it disappears :-)

Well it's accessible from their front page, and the site is back up so you can just read it like normal anyway.

This has matured into a very useful little resource for the last outings of freeware before it became share / commercial ware:

And yes, the download link to the final freeware version of Diskdigger is somewhere in there!

I have e-mailed the developer of DiskDigger to ask permission to host the latest freeware version on dotTech. Let's see what he says.

Is there a need for a mirror? The old version ist still available on the old homepage.

When i found diskdigger.org it already was shareware. Was the freeware version also hosted there before?
