Yes, thank you. After I posted, I saw the history page updated. Still, the difference is that in the history page, for UBCD5.1 the items are appended from the several development releases between the 2 stable ones. What I posted is "merged" (not appended) and from the user point of view.

Post subject:  Re: UBCD V5.1 available for download

Hi: I am new to the UBCD, having just downloaded V5.1.1 and created the bootable DVD-CD from the ISO image file. Although I do have a previous version of the UBCD from PC Tools, circa Oct 2007, I was never comfortable using it with a user guide. I used it only for memory tests on my old Win XP SP3 desktop. Now I need to be able to check my WD internal HD (HP dv9820us laptop, Vista x64) for bad sectors, hopefully with the capability to repair them, since my WD diagnostic program and my SeaTools for Windows programs have each detected a bad sector in this internal drive. I was unable to use, successfully, a bootable CD for the SeaTools for DOS which I had downloaded (but I understand from another source that this tool might not handle my SAGTA-connected internal WD HD). However, I would be grateful for access to a User Guide for the hard disk tools on the UBCD 5.1.1 DVD-CD. Thanks, in advance, for any assistance in this matter. Appreciatively, Arbyem

You are posting this issue also in another topic (where I answered to your post). Please don't double post, specially on topics not related to your issue. Read the many tutorials and other pages alike located at http://www.ultimatebootcd.com, search this forum, read the wiki (and other many articles and videos posted out there).

Of course, if you have a problem that is not already discussed, you are very welcome to open a new topic in the correct section of the forum and we'll try to help you.

With apologies for the near-duplicate post, I will withdraw from this stream, and stick to the other. Appreciatively, Arbyem
