      1. HDD auto initialization while task entrance
      2. HDD error auto specialized processing
      3. HDD auto specialized processing of HDD readiness lost
      4. HDD manual initialization mode
    In this tool we presented download facilities "App", "Ovl 0". "Cert" Here is produced App modification, which allows to solve HDD working deceleration problem while activation.of the mechanism Offline Scan (pending bug). This function allows to radically increase the process of reading users data from damaged drive.

30.06.2008 DataExtractor:

  • "Utility Actions" points are appended to task entrance script, to errors processing script, to actions scrip at readiness loss and to service menu. It allows also to adjust composition and parameters of these actions. Accessibility, composition and parameters are determined by specialized utility. (For today these functions are realized in Seagate utility)
