HD-Workbench – added 1/9/2007
HD Workbench can evacuate data from a potentially failing disk to a ‘known to be good’ disk by creating a sector by sector copy (including the MBR, partition tables and boot sectors), or by writing the data to a raw disk image file.
Raw Copy – added 1/9/2007
Raw Copy copies a disk as a raw image from one drive directly to another and is particularly designed for people who have faulty drives and want to transfer the data directly to another drive without doing a file by file copy. This saves the need for operating system re-installs and allows drives with an unknown file system to be copied (including from console game machines, data recorders, mac etc). The program has a built in data recovery function which will attempt to recover data from bad sectors to ensure all the available data is restored from the drive.
