Server issues

by Anton Tomov on Aug 24

I regret to inform our customers that we are currently having issues with the reverse DNS lookups for our domains. The issue was introduced a few days ago but we discovered it just yesterday. Currently we are still waiting for a resolution from our data center who's responsibity is to update and fix the broken PTR records in the master DNS servers. The problem affects mostly email communication as most SMTP servers reject our emails when they are unable to reverse lookup our IP address. If you have sent us an email and haven't received a response please either use the trouble ticket system or try again in 24 hours.

I will post and update once the problem gets fixed (hopefully in the next few hours).

I am sorry for the inconvenience caused.

Wizcode Defragment Mobile with single-click RAM defragmentation released

by on Jul 28

Wizcode releases new version of Defragment MobileJuly 28th, 2009 - Wizcode released a new version of its defragmenter for Windows Mobile devices - Wizcode Defragment Mobile today. The new version 1.04 adds a separate shortcut in the programs menu for instant RAM defragmentation. This feature has been requested by our users. When the new version is installed it will place two shortcuts in the programs folder - the default one and a new one called "Defrag RAM". When started "Defrag RAM" will defragment the heap and will free as much RAM as possible with a single click of the stylus.

Wizcode recommends upgrading to this new release to all its customers. Registered customers receive free upgrades. Non-registered users are encouraged to download and test the 30-day trial version of the application free of charge.


New version of Wizcode ScanDisk Mobile

by on Jul 17

Wizcode releases ScanDisk Mobile v1.04July 17th, 2009 - Wizcode announced a new version of its storage card health monitoring and error checking application for Windows Mobile devices - Wizcode ScanDisk Mobile.

The new v1.04 inherits the file header recognition from Data Recovery Mobile and is now able to assign meaningful file extensions to converted cluster chains instead of using the generic .CHK extension by analyzing the binary file data and attempting to guess the file type. More than 180 file types are currently being supported. This greatly improves the ability to instantly recover data from lost clusters chains on the run.

Wizcode recommends upgrading to this new release to all its customers. Registered customers receive free upgrades. Non-registered users are encouraged to download and test the 30-day trial version of the application free of charge.


Download Wizcode Unformat Beta and win a free license

by on Jun 24

Wizcode Unformat Mobile BetaJune 24th, 2009 - Wizcode LLC released the first public beta version of Wizcode Unformat Mobile.

Unformat Mobile is a data recovery product for Windows Mobile that uses file header recognition deep scan techniques to recover data from storage cards. Read the full press release here.

The beta can be downloaded from Wizcode's server:


To install the beta please download the corresponding .CAB file to your device and start it using the file explorer. After the installation is finished navigate to your Programs folder (tap Start Menu->Programs) and find the application icon. Tap the icon to start Unformat Mobile.

To recover data from a storage card launch the application, choose Unformat and select the storare card you wish to recover from. Wait for the application to scan the entire card. This is a slow process because it has to read every single sector from the card and examine the data from it. Please note that even if you stop the scanning process the application will still attempt to recover the data from the sectors read.

After the scan is complete you will see a list of potential recovery candidates (files). Select the ones you wish to recover and tap 'Next'. You will be asked for a location where to store the rescued files (they cannot be saved on the same card). Wait for the recovery to complete.

We would like to propose a small giveaway of 5 licenses for the application to anybody who actually tried Unformat Mobile and was able to recover files from his card.  Try scanning an old and even a formatted storage cards - you will be surprised at the amount of info Unformat Mobile will be able to get back. Post your comments here and we will randomly pick 5 users for the contest.

Good luck!


Wizcode Unformat Mobile public beta

by on Jun 16

Wizcode Unformat Mobile sector scanJune 16th, 2009 - Wizcode LLC, the leading provider of software and solutions for mobile devices announced today the beta of its newest data recovery product for the Windows Mobile platform - Wizcode Unformat Mobile.

Wizcode Unformat Mobile is the latest and the most powerful data recovery product from Wizcode based on the Phoenix framework. It differs significantly from Wizcode ScanDisk Mobile and Wizcode Undelete Mobile in the way it attempts to recover lost or damaged data.

While both ScanDisk and Undelete rely on at least partially available file system to respectively repair errors and bring back deleted files, Unformat Mobile can save data even from a formatted or severely damaged file system. Together these 3 products form the ultimate disaster data recovery platform for Windows Mobile.

Unformat Mobile will scan the sectors on the storage card one by one looking for known file patterns or file system structures. The current version of Unformat Mobile can identify more than 180 different file types based on the file data contents. After all sectors are scanned, Unformat Mobile will try putting all pieces of data together. Recognized file types will be matched against any file system records remaining on the disk. A list of recovery candidates will be compiled. If possible, reconstruction of the file names, sizes and attributes will be attempted. If corresponding directory entries are not found or geometry issues are detected, the recovery candidates will be given with generic names and size but will still be recovered.

After the list is compiled, a consistency check will be run across all items and any obviously corrupted files will be removed before actual recovery. Consistency checks include geometry and alignment issues, directory entry validation and checksums, overlapping clusters, and bogus data left from previous file systems. Once the list is validated the application can proceed with actual recovery based on user selection. Files must be recovered to a different storage card or to the main memory of the device.

Wizcode Unformat Mobile can bring back data that no one even knew was available on the storage card. Just run a scan and you will be surprised at the amount of information it will find on it that you thought never existed. This complex mobile application can compete with very expensive desktop based disaster recovery systems and is the first application of its kind in the Windows Mobile World.

Defragment Mobile and ScanDisk updates

by Anton Tomov on May 28

Wizcode Defragment Mobile v1.02May 28th, 2009 - Wizcode LLC announced updated versions of ScanDisk Mobile and Defragment Mobile today.

The updates contain non-critical fixes as well as some minor improvements. Existing users can download and upgrade their registered copies of the products from the download section of our site. Upgrades are free.

Defragment Mobile v1.02:

  • Fixed ScanDisk FAT12/FAT16 dot-dot folder validation error when the parent folder is the root folder
  • Fixed auto defragment service and moved the launcher to the \Windows folder
  • Fixed registry changes not flushed immediately error
  • Added FlashBoost flash block size parameter under Settings->FlashBoost
