SpinRite (installer only)

This entry is just for the SpinRite installer.

SpinRite is a platform-independant hard drive repair, recovery and maintenance tool.  Unlike other data recovery software, SpinRite attempts to repair a hard drive to a readable or bootable state, rather than simply extract data.

Although it runs from a FreeDOS-powered live CD, it is only distributed as a Windows executable, which can then be used to create bootable ISO or IMG files, bootable floppy diskettes, or install the SpinRite software on a hard drive.

6.0SpinRite 6.0 is the first version of SpinRite to become platform independent. By running it as a FreeDOS-powered live CD, it is able to operate on any hard drive, regardless of file system or operating system.  It is still, however, distributed as a Windows executable.Platinum1.2.210
