Does it really work? It seems that the creators of this program either don't know too much about Iomega drives, or they haven't tested it out much, because it says that it can fix disks damaged from the click of death problems on Zip and Jaz drives.

Uhh...I've only heard about the click of death on Zip, not Jaz, have I been missing something? I don't think so...I've been reading many news articles about the click of death, and I've never seen anything about it affecting Jaz drives...

P.S. Winston, news.com reported the figure as less than 1% of total drives, but when you've shipped so many drives, "less than 1%" will still cause a lot of public outrage, which it obviously has.
