add Virtual PC-Check ?

#1 Post by stoffel » Thu Jun 09, 2005 1:49 am

hello,
as a longtime user of the ubcd I have to share the experience I made with
the a hdd problem in two thinkpads. The hdds really did not make any good
noise, so i tried Drive Fitness Test. Failure -> so i sent the laptop in.
Then I got the repaired Laptop but the hdd was just loder then before.
I phoned with someone from the support because Drive Fitness Test didnt
gave me any failures on the repaired hdds and the nice guy told me to
test with "Virtual Pc-Check Version 5.67 IBM" and there the failures showed.
Although Im not unexperienced with systemtools i didnt know this program
but I think its because of there license that it is not on the cdrom ?
virtual pc-check is a product from eurosoft, but the thing is, that it can find
failures, where DFT says it is all ok.

Thanks for the suggestion. But doesn't look like it's free, so I don't
think it is possible to bundle it with UBCD. But you can always add it
to your own customized CD if you own the software.

DFT is good at catching bad sectors but not at other errors.

Since this software is payware, I don't think we are able to add it to
the UBCD.
