Version 2.8 is the latest release of the Data Lifeguard Tools. Please download the file to a Windows directory and execute dlgmaker.exe. You will be prompted to insert a blank floppy diskette, and the file will create a bootable EZ-Install diskette. Data Lifeguard Tools contains the following utilities: EZ-Install: EZMaker.exe is a self-extracting file that creates a bootable diskette that runs only the EZ-Install portion of the DLG Tools. This version of EZ-Install is part of DLG Tools. Diagnostics: The Diagnostics option allows you to test the drive, print results for last drive tested, repair errors found during the Test Drive option and write zeros to the drive (low-level format). This option replaces Wd_diag and Wd_clear (which was used for scanning errors "Read Verify" and low-level formatting capabilities). The Diagnostics also replaces Wdat_ide.exe for scanning and defect management. Note: You should continue to use Wdat_ide.exe if you own one of the following older model WD Caviar hard drives: AC140, AC160, AC280, AC2120, AC2170, AC2200. BIOS Check: BIOS Check reports number of drives physically detected, number of drives accessed by the BIOS and additional drive table information. This utility was written so end users can report their system configuration to Western Digital technical support personnel when discussing disk drive issues. Ultra ATA Manager: This utility is used to enable or disable the Ultra ATA 33/66/100 capability on Western Digital EIDE drives that support this feature.
