Scan Files on Failure Flash Cards, CD/DVD or HDD/SSD for Reading. Very Fast
FBI Logo

This program checks a failure drive for read errors. It shows error reading files even if computer freezes when accessing a bad block.

I wrote this program when I had a HDD failure to find out which file I cannot copy, because when I tried to keep the disk, the laptop just hangs without giving any failure information. This program helped me.

Use this program also to check old CD/DVD collection or old drives. It saves my time. Author hope this program will help you, too.
