prevent ! - before recovery is necessary
before you have to recover a drive, prevent its demise. i can sort of understand why SpinRite ( http://grc.com ) was omitted from this article since it is not explicitly designated as a recovery tool even though it DOES RECOVER as well as repair as well as refresh every bit location on the hd. i, adn many of my clients, have been grateful satisfied with SpinRite since ver 3.5 (lat 80s i believe) and it;s on 5.0 last i upraded.
