SpinRite Hard Drive Recovery

If you ever have a hard drive start to act crazy or even die and you want to save the data on it, SpinRite is a good option to try. Here are a few notes on this program.

  • If you can’t run SpinRite on the problem computer, you can pull it out and put it in a hard drive docking station and connect it to another computer via USB.
  • Spinrite will work on a USB drive, but you have to have it connected to the computer when you bootup from the Spinrite disk.
  • Even if SpinRite can’t save everything, it may be able to recover the data, so give it some time for it to work – 24 to 48 hours in some cases.
  • Spinrite costs $89, but does come with a money-back guarantee.

Here’s a video – a bit dated, but it still is useful.
