I have added a new utility to v2.1.634, Press ALT+CTRL+F5 to invoke DiskDoctor.exe. This is a low-level disk access program for checking hard disks for errors and viewing and editing sectors.

Features:
  • Raw disk access only
  • Scans entire surface for errors
  • Reports SMART errors before and after an operation so you can see what has changed
  • Read, edit and write sectors (edit up to 20 sectors at a time)
  • Check disk performance (measure transfer rate, average transfer rate and detects marginally bad sectors by detecting retries)
  • Search disk for a string (case sensitive or insensitive), or a byte sequence or for first NOT value - i.e. first byte that is not 00h

Take care! You can corrupt your hard disk with this utility!
