Earlier this month we were reporting that Piriform updated its CCleaner product to version 3.11 and added initial support for the upcoming Microsoft Windows 8 operating system. We are now glad to report that Piriform updated another of its products and added support for Windows 8 as well.

Piriform, privately owned UK software developer dedicated to creating top quality applications for Windows and Mac, announced at the start of the week that Recuva, its data recovery solution, has been updated to version 1.41 and that among other things, it adds preliminary support for the Windows 8 operating system.


The “other things” Recuva 1.41 has to offer are as follows:
- Added content searching for specific text in deleted files.
- Added regular expression matching to the filter.
- Added preliminary support for Windows 8.
- Improved support for BartPE (added new folder creation).
- Fixed filter drop down highlight issue.
- Improved recovery of compressed files from drives with non-standard cluster size.
- Many minor UI improvements.
- Latvian language added.

If you would like to get Recuva and recover files that you accidentally deleted or lost when your computer crashed, you can grab it straight from Piriform here. If you’re already using the data recovery solution you will get an automated update prompt the next time you use it.

I mentioned above that Piriform is a privately owned UK software developer dedicated to creating top quality applications for Windows and Mac. The only Mac product in Piriform’s portfolio is CCleaner for Mac, which is currently in Beta. The news is that CCleaner for Mac Beta 5 has been released to the public.

Here’s the change log for CCleaner for Mac Beta 5:
- Added uninstall feature.
- Improved speed of Safari cleaning.
- Improved QuickTime cleaning.
- Fixes to Yahoo! widgets.
- Lots of UI improvements and bug fixes.

If you would like to get CCleaner for Mac Beta 5 and put it to the test, you can grab it straight from Piriform here. Please note that this Beta version (as is the case with all Betas) is meant for advanced users only.
