Re: ubcd4 - hdd diagnostic results. now what ?

DFT is on the UBCD 4.11, after googleing UBCD 4.11, which is the version I have, I found that the DFT on this version is 4.09.

Be advised that is what I ran to get the results in my first post.

Are suggesting that I download,burn and run the latest UBCD version and DFT ?
