Seeking an evaluation of Spinrite

I am thinking of buying Spinrite . I know that its a program to maintain hard drives etc but was wondering if someone on EE has tried it. I am looking for a really good data recovery program and am interested to know how good Spinrite is for recovering data. I already use Recover My Files which is very good but there are some things it just wont recover.

IT ROCKS!! I have recovered many, many, many hard drives with this tool.

Spinrite scans the hard drive and rewrites the sectors.  It will repair about most any disk errors.

Can I please ask what (approximately) percentage of these drives data can be recovered. Would it be better than other , similar products. I have already bought three recovery programs all claiming to work miracles but are pretty ordinary. I would be grateful for a reply

100% from my own use.  If your looking for something to recover deleted items.  This is not it.  But if your computer goes into continual reboot.  Or windows won't start or your TIVO stops working this will help you.

You can check out the Security Now! Podcast on twit.tv with Steve Gibson.  He wrote the program.

What are you trying to recover?
