Re: ubcd4 - hdd diagnostic results. now what ?

UBCD has several "Cloning" programs, you can find them in the menu under HDD/Disk Cloning. I've used EaseUs Disk Copy and others with little to no problems. The hard drive manufacturer's boot CDs usually have something for this such as Western Digitals DLG having Acronis True Image which is excellen...

Re: ubcd4 - hdd diagnostic results. now what ?

Chances are the files are lost, drive is possibly dead. See if you can access the recovery partition when booting, I found forum posts showing F8 and F11. The timing can be a bit of a pain with some systems and when to hit the button. I usually keep hitting the key every couple seconds, mainly as th...

Re: ubcd4 - hdd diagnostic results. now what ?

You can try to recover the partition, testdisk is included in PMagic... If your able to recover the partition you should be good, but I would still copy everything over to another drive and reload/restore.

Re: ubcd4 - hdd diagnostic results. now what ?

Did you check the MD5 of the ISO you downloaded?

Are you booting from a CD or USB?

You can try another Live CD/DVD or USB to copy over files.

Re: ubcd4 - hdd diagnostic results. now what ?

You can use GParted which is included in PMagic to re-partition the drive. There are several formatting utilities in UBCD but I usually use the OS I'm installing to do that. The recovery DVD will format and possibly partition the drive. If your system had a recovery partition it should re-create tha...

Re: ubcd4 - hdd diagnostic results. now what ?

DFT (Drive Fitness Test) 4.16 is included in the latest UBCD but not sure which version is on the UBCD ISO you downloaded (UBCD4?) but it should be there AFAIK. I would run DFT and try that before using anything else.

Re: ubcd4 - hdd diagnostic results. now what ?

First thing I would suggest is to check all your connections, inside and out. Especially the drive connectors. During cleaning, if you were moving any wires around it is pretty easy to slightly dislodge the cables. After that if no improvement, I would probably boot to a live CD (PartedMagic include...

Re: Suggestions for replacement of Parted Magic

I let it run for a while but never connected to the seeds. uTorrent was showing 2 then 1 seed but never connected to either and was showing 7 then 11 peers but only connected to 1 who showed as having 1% for over an hour.

Re: What do I do after auto-nuking my hard drive?

What is your PC manufacturer and model? Did it have a recovery partition and/or do you have media (CD/DVD)? What wiping program/tool did you use? Many manufacturers don't provide media any more and will instead have a recovery partition that you would boot to and restore the system to factory settin...

Re: Suggestions for replacement of Parted Magic

I've always liked having a small distro included that could be used to back up files before running tests and especially for the ability to access the web from an infected PC. That can all be done with a separate distro on the same flash drive (YUMI has worked well for me...) @StopSpazzing - You men...

Format complete.

You sure that's not a 256MB flash drive?

Re: Unable to add PC-Check to UBCD

It can be difficult to help when the program/tool is not freeware. It would help to know what you tried to do, the steps you used to add it to UBCD such as files added along with location and any config file edits that you made. What exactly happens when you try to boot the PC-Check ISO?
