HDD Regenerator is an interesting application designed to recover defective sectors from hard disks.
As hard disks are composed of magnetised cylinders and the reading on their surface is done in a sequential way, it is possible that, when some sectors become damaged, the path to access certain information could not be followed, and because of that the data from the disk could not be read.
With HDD Regenerator damaged sectors or badly magnetised ones can be repaired. This tool ignores the file system included on the disk (FAT, NTFS or any other) and performs scanning on the physical surface.
You can put HDD Regenerator in a diskette or a CD to start directly from this device and thus work under DOS.
HDD Regenerator performs repairs without modifying or altering existing data in the hard disk.
Limitations of the Trial Version:
- Recovers part of the damaged sectors.
