    FYI SpinRite's Development Roadmap

    Steve, I can't thank you enough for your contributions to many aspects of my understanding of security and drive maintenance. I just had to upgrade my PC (the last one was about 10 years old, still serviceable now that I reformatted the drives and reinstalled Windows - so my wife uses it)...

    Problem booting from Acer Aspire?

    My Acer Aspire is a desktop TC-895. I cannot change from UEFI in the BIOS. I have tried to disable Secure Boot, turning off TPM, disabling all drives but the Removable, disconnecting all external drives and peripherals. I cannot seem to get the machine to boot from USB. (My BIOS is Del, FWIW).
