I have a 6TB drive that SpinRite won't read. The error I get is "MBR Followed by EFI," which seems like it is because the drive is formatted as GPT and not MBR. Now that @Steve is working on 6.1 again, does anyone know if that error will still be addressed in 6.1 or will I have to wait until v7?

(I ran the AHCI-36b test. It sees and benchmarks my drives just fine.)
