Repeating DLG (Windows) v2.14 Extended Test Runs

Per Data Lifeguard Diagnostics for Windows:

  1. Where do I find the version number once the app is launched?

  2. Does each Extended Test test-run check the exact same byte locations as the previous test-runs or are the analyzed byte locations varied/ randomized locally for each successive test-run?

System: Win7 Pro 64-Bit, 6GB RAM, 250GB Blue SATA III Int. H/D


The DLG does not state what version it is inside the app. to make sure you are running the latest version you can download it from the link below:

DLG extended test will scan all sectors on your hard drive every time you run it.

Exactly what does the “scan all sectors” process consist of?

Is only one byte per sector tested or not even that?

I’m simply trying to understand the extent of this test protocol.

Thanks! :slight_smile:
