Jared wrote:I don't think like that chart. A timeout of 20 seconds on some drives will kill the heads long before you get a decent amount of data. 60 seconds is just excessive. My experience is that for most drives (WD & Seagate at least) if a single sector doesn't read in 850-1000ms, it's never going to read.

We just want a tool that's works, for the best price as possible.
