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.


Advantages of new Drevitalize 4.10 Windows/UEFI

  • DRevitalize (UEFI) Possibility to choose AHCI controller if there are more than one.
  • DRevitalize (UEFI) Vendor specific function “ATA clear password” support corrected for Samsung drives.
  • DRevitalize (UEFI) Visual changes corrected. Now the system correctly displays when the drive is accessed via AHCI PIO.
  • DRevitalize (Windows/UEFI) Feature and Firmware data now has the last operation status displayed on bottom of page.
  • DRevitalize (Windows/UEFI) Display SMART data corrected for SSD drives with non standard SMART attributes table.
  • DRevitalize (Windows) No more ATA PIO transfer mode for single sector reads and writes on SATA channels. Every data transfer on SATA channels is now done via DMA.
  • DRevitalize (Windows) Proper device reset has been implemented via windwos IOCTL mechanism.
  • FAT32 format executed when creating boot version of DRevitalize (UEFI) supports pen drives up to 2TB (VALIDATE and INFOTOOL utilities).

 

Advantages of new Drevitalize 4.00 Windows/UEFI

  • Completetly new design for DRevitalize (Windows) and DRevitalize (UEFI).
  • 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.
  • Supervisor mode allowing to execute any instruction on operating system hard drive C. Supervisor mode will require a special confirmation.
  • Possibility to switch current manufacturer via menu. A different set of vendor specific ATA commands may be used for drives made by another manufacturer.
  • All defined in ATA8 specification SMART tests, including the seletive SMART test, are now available. Two status lines (one for offline scan and one for self scan) updated on a regular basis.
  • All I/O operations are now made in synchronous mode. DRevitalize 4.00 moves from asynchronous single threaded I/O used in 3.xx versions to synchronous multi threaded I/O.
  • Major improvement and clarification of feature functions. SATA specific feature functions added.
  • All possible Device Configuration Overlay settings may now be changed.
  • ATA terminal with check & try possibilities for user defined ATA commands.
  • Detailed scan Log available anytime and with the possibility to be accessed even during scan.
  • All known devices in the year 2019 are now detected and displayed with correct bus.
  • UEFI boot mode EFI executable can now be created with VALIDATE or INFOTOOL.

 

Advantages of new Drevitalize 3.32 Windows/DOS AHCI

  • Drevitalize (DOS) : AHCI detection now done via base class code, sub class code and programming interface (1, 6, 1).
  • Drevitalize (DOS) : AHCI drives detection procedure similar to UEFI to detect damaged drives.
  • Drevitalize (DOS) : Reset password for Western Digital drives now works in AHCI mode too.
  • Drevitalize (all) : Toshiba SATA clear G-List and clear SMART added (clear G-List available in demo version too).
  • Drevitalize (all) : HGST drives with no “Hitachi” in name detected as Hitachi for vendor specific commands.
