HDD Low Level Format Tool Editor's Review
When a hard disk is corrupted, a tool like this is the last resort to restore the disk to working condition. Disk drives are an expensive component to replace, and use of this free tool avoids this expense by restoring the drive to factory default.
As a freeware app for low-level hard disk drive formatting, this app does a decent job, but is not fool-proof. Formatting a large disk drive can take a long time and if a flash drive is write-protected, the HDD Low Level Format Tool fails to format it.
However, the app is free for personal use, making it a decent option if you do not have a particularly large drive to format. Even if you want to upgrade to remove the speed limit, the fee is minimal at $3.30. Even a commercial license is only $27.
Pro's: Freeware app with a low upgrade fee makes it financially accessible to everyone. Effectively restores seemingly irreparable drives affected by viruses or constant data corruption.
Con's: Can take a long time to work on larger disk drives, causing users to think it does not work and interrupt the process. Using the freeware version it takes approximately 12 hours to process 2TB.
Conclusion: The HDD Low Level Format Tool is not the most advanced option available, but as a freeware app it does provide good value to users looking to rescue their hard disk drive.
