Okay.After last month's review of "giis for ext4" at LinuxFormat magazine. I have decided to update this tool. Because i believe this tool does magic and clever :D.But this time I'm not going to do crazy/wild things like "toggle block bitmap and inode bitmap and updating Group desc. and super block" :P Watch out for the updates soon !!!!

          Release Notes: An "analyze" mode was added (and is activated with the -a option) for the -g option. Analyze mode won't recover any files; instead it will log the header block, trailer block, and file types. This information can be used for manual verification or processing using the dd command.
