SubRosaSoft, Ltd. has released an update for DiskGuardian, bringing it to version 2.0. DiskGuardian is a utility designed for hard drive failure alerting and repair. The latest version features improved diagnostic and repair capabilities. According to SubRosaSoft:
SubRosaSoft, Ltd., a software company based in New Zealand focusing on guardian and system utility software, today announced an update to the acclaimed DiskGuardian.
SubRosaSoft DiskGuardian is a collection of tools that alert users of imminent hard drive failure in addition to performing Volume Repairs, Backup and Restore, Benchmarking, Surface Scanning for media defects, and verification of data integrity on storage subsystems.
The latest version, 2.1 includes a menu command to search for disks that were not mounted (even those that are not mountable). In addition to drive repair, a user can now backup an unmounted drive which is extremely useful as the repair can be made to the clone drive without risking the original. It can also perform a surface scan to help diagnose the cause.
