NO OFFICIAL BETA AVAILABLE



DREVITALIZE 3.3X POSSIBLE UPDATES

  • Drevitalize (DOS) : Attempt to fix the 'No Extended Memory has been allocated' bug on some specific (Dell, HP) builds with Q75 chipset.
  • Repair bad sectors function has a new mode (aggressive recovery).
    This mode uses 48bit read long/write long to restore as much data as possible from the bad sector.
  • Add option 'copy to file' for copy RAW data to target drive.
  • Add more hard drive manufacturers for Format Unit and Clear Defect reassign command :
    Currently Format Unit works with : IBM, Hitachi, HGST, WD, Fujitsu.
    Clear defect reassign works with : WD, Samsung, Fujitsu, Toshiba (ATA only).
  • SMART routine tests and SMART error logs.
  • Advanced sanitization options on SSD/HDDs.
  • Design changes and window appearance upgrade.

MANUFACTURER COMMANDS SUGGESTED

  • Check firmware modules - try to read all firmware modules without saving a copy.
  • Retrieve or upload a specific firmware module to disk.
Please note that the above list of suggested manufacturer commands does not mean that they will all be included and that it will happen anytime soon. The most imporanat update would be to include the possibility to clear G-List (reallocated sectors) and give DRevitalize the possibility to fully repair a drive. DRevitalize needs continuous non-reallocated area to unleash the full potential of DOS 3.xx versions with modified recovery loop and disabled read look ahead.
