DREVITALIZE REQUIRES BASIC HARD DRIVE AND MASS STORAGE DEVICES KNOWLEDGE
Main objective of Drevitalize is to diagnose and repair magnetic media
|DRevitalize is a program that repairs bad sectors (physical defects) on popular magnetic media (hard drives and also floppy drives to some extent) by generating a special sequence of high and low signals around the physically damaged area. The surface of almost any drive can be repaired with this utility (even hard drives that were dropped down or exposed to strong electromagnetic fields). For more informations please read the full documentation.|
