For anyone that is going to risk their data with this old program I suggest you learn about firmware before making things worse. All it takes is one press of a button and presto your data is gone. Personally, I would never use it on a customer's drive. It has too many bugs...

Yes, I messed up a hdd,but I noticed few things that this prog was really was able to read the Service Area on my maxtor 40GB N40P ARDENT.

Also noticed that this prog does not take : modules and firmwares meant to be used with PC3000.

HR2.0 can read/write only a part of the SA, not the entire! (fortunately :D )
This prog don't have a lot of required option, but have a lot of bugs instead.
And yes, agree, one bad click on a button (or even a bad order, wich is not documented), and bye bye data....

Regads,

Hi!
Is it possible to do a Selfscan on Maxtor N40P with this tool, and how ?
Data is not important on the hdd.
