Looking for a software tool to scan/edit hard drives

Recommended Posts

A friend of mine told me about a software tool that he bought from Japan that is capable of scanning/editing files on a hard drive no matter what the format is. He said that he used the tool in Linux (after booting from a Live CD) but he doesn't remember the name of the tool. Only thing he can remember is that when the tool loads it puts up an IBM splash screen.

Anyone ever hear of anything like that?

Thanks for your time.

I can't really find any pay products, but these 2 IBM apps:

IBM version of EZ-Smart

IBM Feature/Align Tool:

But those aren't for files. Maybe something on the UBCD, which has a lot of hard disk related programs included:

Yeah, those apps dont sound like what he was talking about. I forgot to mention that the IBM app comes on a non copyable flash drive that has to be mounted after the OS boots.

I'm hoping that he get back to me later today.
