Drevitalize 3.24

DREVITALIZE FUTURE PLANS

NO OFFICIAL BETA AVAILABLE



DREVITALIZE 4.0 MINIMUM SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS

  • Drevitalize 4.0 (Windows) will require at least Net Framework 4.5.1. This can be installed on Windows Vista SP2 and higher Windows OS. There is no need to install anything on Windows 10.
  • UEFI compliant boot machine for the boot version of Drevitalize 4.0. Old Drevitalize (DOS) will not be updated to version 4.0. However there may be an upgrade to Drevitalize (DOS) 3.3x which would correct some minor issues and add more drive specific manufacturer commands.
  • New vendor specific manufacturer commands available in version 3.32+ and 4.00 : Toshiba SATA clear defect reassign and clear SMART, new HGST drives support for format unit and clear SMART.


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.
