HDAT2 is program for test or diagnostics of ATA/ATAPI/SATA, SSD and SCSI/USB devices. It will not execute in a DOS session under Windows. You should make a DOS boot floppy disk or CD/DVD and boot your system for it and execute this program from that floppy disk or CD-ROM.
HDAT2 program has 2 levels:

Device testing
* main function is testing and repair (to regenerate) bad sectors for detected devices
* you get much information about detected devices

File system testing
* read/find/check items (MBR, boot, directories, etc.) of file system FAT12/16/32
* check/remove (regenerates) bad sectors records, flags in FAT table

* fully implemented commands: SET MAX, SET SECURITY, Device Configuration Overlay (DCO)
* device access with interrupt 13h, direct via ATA ports, with ASPI drivers
* detects ATA/ATAPI/SATA devices with on-board and add-on controllers
* detects devices on AHCI/RAID controllers (just only on ports 0-3)
* detects USB devices via USB ASPI driver or BIOS (if supported)
* detects SCSI hard drives via BIOS interrupt 13h or ASPI drivers
* other SCSI devices are detected via ASPI drivers only (must be loaded before); with ASPI drivers you will get more information about SCSI devices
* test and repair device for bad sectors (so far version 4.5.3 only)
* many different test-functions for hard drives
* resize ATA/SATA hard drives which supports SET MAX ADDRESS/EXT (supports 28/48-bits LBA addressing modes)
* resize and change sector size of SCSI disks
* drive lock detection via security feature (Security Menu)
* S.M.A.R.T. functions for ATA/SATA and SCSI drives only
* information about devices (ATA/ATAPI, BIOS interrupt 13h, ASPI, EDD)
* sector viewer for devices (also for USB, ZIP, CD-data discs)
* to access ATA/SATA CD/DVD drive you don't need any driver or MSCDEX
* enable/disable some features for direct-access devices
* Device Configuration Overlay (DCO) feature set (you can restore a full capacity or allow/disallow some feature sets of hard drive)

Known limitations:
* change SATA controller in BIOS from AHCI to IDE/ATA/legacy mode
* the SATA/AHCI/RAID devices will be detected only on ports 0-3

What's new (27.08.2016)
* new version 5.2 dated 10.07.2016

Minimal configuration:
* CPU 386/486 with co-processor or higher
* RAM 1 MB or more
* DOS boot system
