The PC Repair Prof's Downloads Page

This is a collection of programs that I have found quite useful mostly in the areas of PC Repair technician work and/or data recovery operations. Shareware will be links to the official sites where they can be found with the entire url of the link in the status bar if the link fails. Some small freeware programs are here with the zip file and the full zip file name is the link to them. It is best to right click on these zip files and select Save in the popup menu.

Links to my programs. PLEASE READ the included text file with each program which will explain what it is for and how to use it AND so you understand that I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR WHAT HAPPENS TO YOUR COMPUTER(S) OR YOUR DATA WHEN YOU USE MY PROGRAMS ON THEM!:

  • ss122b.zip

    is a sector searching program that did the job that most commercial software would not do. If you have already downloaded SS122.ZIP, you should delete it and get SS122B.ZIP which has a significant bug fix (Posted 02-17-08) WARNING: CHS GEOMETRY ONLY - ONLY FOR USE ON HARD DRIVES SMALLER THAN 8.4GB (7.8GiB) in SIZE!

  • ldrvimg.zip

    is a logical drive imager. LDRVIMG.EXE can save any DOS recognized drive letter structure (partition or device including floppies and RAM drives) to a file sector-by-sector. And it can restore the drive letter from the file at a later time. WARNINGS: 1) LDRVIMG.EXE IS AN EXPERIMENTAL TOOL NOT A BACKUP/RESTORE PROGRAM. IT DOES NOT SUPPORT RESTORATION TO A TARGET WITH A DIFFERENT GEOMETRY, THE SAVED ORIGINAL DRIVE MUST HAVE IDENTICAL GEOMETRY TO THE TARGET DRIVE OF THE RESTORATION. 2) WARNING: CHS GEOMETRY ONLY - ONLY FOR USE ON TARGET DRIVES SMALLER THAN 2GiB UNDER TRUE VERSIONS OF DOS (up to 6.22) AND 4GiB UNDER DOS 7.X! 3) WARNING: LDRVIMG.EXE HAS ALREADY BEEN CAUGHT DAMAGING IMAGE FILES DURING CREATION AND DURING RESTORATION, I WILL INVESTIGATE THIS AT THE EARLIEST OPPORTUNITY. ANY AND ALL BUG REPORTS INCLUDING SOURCE DRIVE CHS PARAMETERS, BIOS MFG. AND VERSION, AND COPIES OF THE IMAGE FILES (PLEASE REMOVE ALL PERSONAL DATA FIRST!) WILL BE APPRECIATED!
