yup, since i could only get a hold of the shareware version and it took me about a month to do it had to reboot after every error on the drive that was corrected, but what the hell, the drive was given to me and now i have a nice reliable extra 40 gigs on the system.

It is physically impossible to repair a hardware problem using software. If a hard drive is making a noise, no program will fix it. BTW, I wonder if that program could restore my 486DX sitting in the garage. I was going to build a new machine, but if its just a matter of running a program, I think I might strip my drive down and test it.

Sorry no. Software cannot physically fix a mechanical fault. Either you believe in water divining, or the noise went away coincidently.

BTW, can you tell me where I can get that program. My car needs reconditioning, and I would love to burn it to cd and then play it while I'm driving along laughing at all the local mechanics.

i had never claimed that the clicking was due to a fault in the hardware. many errors aren't damaged hardware. if you do have a hard drive thats making clicking noises due to errors then why don't you try this program and see if it fixes it, perhaps we can get several people to with clicking drives to try it and push the boundaries of coincidence a bit further.

as i said, the shareware versioon will only fix one error at a time then you need to reboot and run it again.

The clicking noise doesent always mean the cylinders are ****ed. Ive known hd's to be fixed when theyve been cliking with repair disks.
