Will spinrite?


Recommended Posts

Ok so i'm getting this error "cyclic redundancy check" and i did some googling and it turns out that its a message my hardrive is telling me that it begginning to fail(which i beyond me because it not even a year old, the error appeared after i turned the thing back on so i have to assume it has something to do with that)

so i have spin rite as a disk and i'm wondering if its maintenance option will erase all the data on my external hardrive, because thats what it sound like from "repetedly reading and writing data"(aka what you do to wipe a hardrive entirly clean literrally and figuratively)

help much appreciated.
