I had to point out that Spinrite is a steaming pile of something but I wanted to use J.Navas’ website GRCSucks.com to do that.

It might be of use to someone, so I published an article that has languished on my hard disk for some time. Give it a read and see what you think. But set aside some time, it’s not a little one!
