Fixes compared to version 2.5:

  • The program now prompts to overwrite a resource-fork-only file on an NTFS system (rare situation).
  • Fixed double prompt for action when NTFS stream(s) and the main file would contain read errors.
  • When tracks are dragged and extracted, but are split into muliple files, all subfiles are now moved as well from the Drag temp folder to the final folder.
  • Fixed very rare instance where aborting extraction of a track would cause the next track to be skipped entirely.

PS. This version will not work anymore on old, officially "End Of Life", Microsoft OS: Windows 95, 98, ME and NT4 due to the too big differences between the early OS and the modern OS. It's simply not possible anymore to support and create functionality for the modern OS (XP, VISTA, 7) and still keep it compatible with the old OS.
