Sounds interesting!

Is there a tool for OS4 like the wellknown "Drive Fitness Test" on the PC. Its a tool to diagnostiv IBM/Hitachi-Harddrives but works with other brands too. It works very well and test discs very exactly and correctly.

Charly says always tell your mummy before you go off use some other os!

it would be nice to have the possibility to change the process/task
priority or even freeze it, sometimes I use this possibility from scout to stop
a GReaped (tm) or 100% CPU task in order to reboot my AOne safely.

Thanks for the latest version. If I had only remembered I had the previous one installed it would have saved a lot of faffing around a few minutes ago.
