[ANNOUNCE] WHDD 2.0rc2 - HDD diagnostic and data recovery tool 4 Linux
It is capable of testing a hard drive with reading and writing, providing intuitive visualization of the process. Visualization or these tests is very similar to MHDD.

(Forum engine did not allow me to post a link, so you may search it manually on YouTube - "WHDD scanning and smart copying of defective HDD".)
WHDD may work with your hard drives on low level, sending ATA commands to device, the benefits are:
- no system freeze while accessing damaged device (device is soft-reset on timeout);
- better timing precision.
