HDD Tune Pro V5.50

Yeah! Cointelect

In the world of hard drive information utilities, HD Tune is a gem. A venerable one at that–it’s been around for years and no one has come up with anything better–except of course for its developers, who also sell a Pro version.

I didn’t want to lose 500gb of data. So here’s a hack to convert it to a Basic Disk without losing any data. It also means i can access the drive in dos properly too.
