  • SpinRite v6.1 Release #3
    The 3rd release of SpinRite v6.1 is published and may be obtained by all SpinRite v6.0 owners at the SpinRite v6.1 Pre-Release page. (SpinRite will shortly be officially updated to v6.1 so this page will be renamed.) The primary new feature, and the reason for this release, was the discovery of memory problems in some systems that were affecting SpinRite's operation. So SpinRite now incorporates a built-in test of the system's memory. For the full story, please see this page in the "Pre-Release Announcements & Feedback" forum.

  • BootAble – FreeDOS boot testing freeware

    To obtain direct, low-level access to a system's mass storage drives, SpinRite runs under a GRC-customized version of FreeDOS which has been modified to add compatibility with all file systems. In order to run SpinRite it must first be possible to boot FreeDOS.

    GRC's “BootAble” freeware allows anyone to easily create BIOS-bootable media in order to workout and confirm the details of getting a machine to boot FreeDOS through a BIOS. Once the means of doing that has been determined, the media created by SpinRite can be booted and run in the same way.

    The participants here, who have taken the time to share their knowledge and experience, their successes and some frustrations with booting their computers into FreeDOS, have created a valuable knowledgebase which will benefit everyone who follows.

    You may click on the image to the right to obtain your own copy of BootAble. Then use the knowledge and experience documented here to boot your computer(s) into FreeDOS. And please do not hesitate to ask questions – nowhere else can better answers be found.

VideoReDo video software may not survive much longer.
It's website is offline -
Current installs can't check for updates.
New software installs can't be activated.

Its forum is still working at
You can see posts about the current issues there.

I know Steve Gibson has used this software in the past.
Just thought Steve & other users of this forum may like to know about this.
Don't know this software, and trying to learn more was basically bust. (The reference to the forum isn't working for me.) I did see it had something to do with Tivo, which would explain why @Steve ever used it. If I had to guess, it either isn't selling well enough to be maintained any more, or else it's a product out of Russia and is being affected by the current world situation.

👍 Thanks for the "heads up" Gavin. ℹ️ I purchased VideoReDo Plus in Nov 2006 to convert the .REC data files copied from my Topfield Personal Video Recorder (PVR) into clean error corrected and/or edited .MPG files. I still use it. I guess I have a problem if I rebuild my PC or get a new one.

Just following up on this with some sad news:

VideoRedo is no longer available for purchase!​

Unfortunately the owner and founder of VideoReDo, Dan Rosen, passed away unexpectedly in September. For now all sales, support and development have been halted while his family decides what to do with the company.​

Very sorry to hear this! I used to use Womble MPEG Wizard for quick edits of mpg-2 files that avoids recompression, but that hasn't been in development or for sale for quite some time. So I bought VideoReDo TV Suite a couple of years ago and it has all of Womble's capabilities and more. Plus, it was still being supported and updated.

Condolences to the family and RIP, Mr. Rosen. I hope there is a way to keep things going that works out for you was well as your user base. (Yeah, I know they're not going to see it here...)
