Need Spinrite Alternative

Spinrite as prerry much always been the industry standard for disk recovery (in this case bad sectors) but I have had enough. I purchased a copy and have only had the need to use it maybe 4 or 5 times over the last couple years and the results are always the same. I quit because it takes weeks to do.

   These hard drives aren't totally massacured. A few bad spots is all. When Spinrite hits them it never finishes. We are talking days per bad spot. Who can wait that long? ANyway I am done messing with it. Weeks are a little too long to wait.

   Is there a Spinrite alternative (bootable CD) that will actually try and recover bad sectors and do it within a 24 hour period?
