Welcome to the forums. Not knocking you, but this is D7 territory. I would like to see your tool in action (any videos?). How does your tool fare against the zero access rootkit or one of the newer more ferocious rooties? I'll admit it...I am biased...big D7 fanboy here. Anyways...welcome.

Hey don't worry I'm a tech myself, and I understand how opinionated and loyal techs can be to their toolkit. D7 is a great utility, and I hope that we can create something so awesome that you at least consider switching over or adding TechUSB to your arsenal. We'll open up beta within a few weeks, so you can have at it and let us know what you think. Thanks for the welcome!

Ian

LOL Thanks Trusted IT!

Perhaps there is room for both utilities in the tech repair scene

As I recently mentioned in my D7's DataGrab vs. Fab's Autobackup 4 Tech thread, competition spurs innovation! Perhaps that will help both of our utils improve in the Windows part of things... On the other hand I have never planned to take D7 the route of a bootable utility, (though it does run in a WinPE environment) nor would I dare to replace valuable utils such as a good factory HDD diag and Memtest86+ ... these are very big shoes to try and fill for Ian's diag/repair util!

Welcome Ian, and good luck!

Hey FoolishTech - I was hoping to get in contact with you and talk a little about D7 and possibly explore some opportunities to collaborate, could you possibly shoot me an email at ian@repairtechsolutions.com ?

After reading my initial post in this thread I feel I need to apologize for being a bit harsh. I realize that competition sparks innovation as Nick stated. Anyways, I am looking forward to Beta testing your app and again, welcome.
