Though Spinrite is a good application

it costs more than a new drive

so unless you run a computer shop it would hardly be worth it

besides...I'd never trust a refurbished drive...
it's not worth the gamble

This is a very simple matter for Windows XP to deal with. I suggest explore
what Windows tools can do for your HD because checking it is pretty simple
and very reliable. If it can't be "repaired" by windows, I bet it can't be
repaired by any other commercial packages either.
