IsoBuster 3.7 Released!

December 18, 2015

The End-of-year release has arrived. Happy holidays ! Aside from improvements and new stuff in the GUI there are a few important bug fixes that you should take advantage of ! Make sure to update your version to this latest release or consider buying an upgrade if you have an older version. IsoBuster 3.7 features a breadcrumbs control for easy navigation, with lots of powerful features under the hood and powerful search functionality in files and folders. Be sure to download and install this new version !

Here's a list of all the goodies:

Changes / New:

  • Implemented a Breadcrumbs control for easy navigation, with right mouse click Pop-up for easy task selection
  • The Breadcrumbs' edit control also interprets paths you copy in it (with limitations), or can show the current path, for easy copying to the clipboard
  • Support for typing in a limited list of commands in the Breadcrumbs' edit control (@close, @refresh:drives, @stop, @restart, @new, @find:\)
  • Ability to turn off TreeView trying to follow selections made in ListView and Breadcrumbs (faster and less memory use due to virtual implementation)
  • Elaborate Search functionality (Ctrl+F), to try and find file(s) and/or folder(s) with certain properties in existing file-systems or file lists. Not to be confused with data/file carving functionality to try and find missing files and folders (Ctrl+F3)


  • Improved use of, and added a lot more ShortCuts throughout the software
  • Different ListView columns layout for search results and ability to show the full path
  • Improved display of files and folders in the status bar, during exploration of folders etc.
  • Improvement in time stamp display and during file extraction, for files created in a different daylight saving time period
  • Ability to reload the drives' list (Shift+Ctrl+R) and all associated objects (files folders etc.)(To check if USB drives have been inserted or removed)
  • Improved the speed of finding a TreeView item exponentially
  • Make sure the size of an initial install is not bigger than the screen resolution (on systems with low resolution)
  • Workaround for Oracle VM VirtualBox 'VBOX CD-ROM' virtual drive that doesn't return correct information in case the ISO file is big (e.g. of a DVD)
  • Added Main menu item to allow you to Upgrade from a [Personal] license to a [Professional] license
  • Allow to properly resize the Properties (Ctrl+I) Window
  • Show blocks being read in status bar while doing a scan for missing files and folders
  • Added 'Copy path as text to clipboard' function (Ctrl+C)
  • Quite a few improvements, changes and re-writes in the core code / engine, as this is a living project and to deal with the ever growing new functionality
  • Various GUI improvements


  • Bugfix for HFS - Not all folder content was shown all the time (*)
  • Bugfix for FAT - Big folders covering multiple clusters would sometimes not be explored fully (*)
  • Fixed it so that the Save Dialog, Print Dialog and Font Dialog won't be displayed behind the SectorView window
(*) Bug introduced in IsoBuster 3.6 - "Extra tests to make sure a child folder doesn't have subfolders that are a parent folder, creating circular links, in buggy or recovered file systems"
