    Hard Drive Regenerator ISO

    Here it is everyone:
    http://thejefffiles.com/downloadfile...egenerator.iso

    Just burn that to a cd, make sure your computer's loading the cd drive first on boot, and pop the disc in there and it'll automatically start up. It takes a while (kinda like defragging....except this actually fixes your disk)

    Enjoy! And I hope other people find this ISO as equally useful as I did this week

    Yah, I know, because all it contains is an autorun and the repairer program. The program's dos-based....so...I mean...there's no reason for it to be big....and it only does one thing, it doesn't have any huge menus or anything.

    all i see in the ISO is an autorun.bat

    I can't wait to leave my parents house and go back to my apartment to try this on a HD that just crashed. Dobt it'll work though because I can hear the head scratching the plate.
    Hmm

    My friend's running it on his 60gb hard drive and so far it's found 5223 sectors that it's repaired, and this is at about 17 gigs out of 60

    Loud scratching noise? that sort of comes and goes in a cycle, sort of like the head scratching the plate in one part as it spins around really fast....
    Hmm

    any scratching, clunking, banging, tinking, anything is usually a bad sign... loud whirring may or my not be... lot of it depends on the drive....

    The reason why you don't hear anything on your Seagate is because you were screwed. From my experience all they do is rebadge broken drives. Unless they actually build them like that?

    I had a 10GB Samsung a little while back that seemed to have a problem starting up. Giving it a whack on the side with the handle of a screwdriver got it spinning though, and it never had any bad sectors.
