“The 12 Days AFTER Christmas” Giveaway: Day 9 – Disk Warrior

This contest is closed. Congrats to faithful Macenstein reader Ned!

On the Ninth Day After Christmas, Macenstein gave to you (or, more accurately, gave you a chance to win…) Your very own copy of DiskWarrior 4 by Alsoft!

diskwarrior 4 by alsoft

Yes, the mighty DiskWarrior 4, the safest, most technologically advanced, most powerful utility to eliminate directory damage available for any computer, and, the only product, hardware or software, that has ever earned the highly sought after 10 out of 10 rating from Macenstein. Why? Because it rescued my entire 60 GB music collection when I had a drive go kablooey on me and other disk repair utilities failed.

The key to DiskWarrior’s success is that it is not a disk repair program in the conventional sense. Instead of patching the original directory, it uses a patent-pending technology to quickly build a new replacement directory using data recovered from the original directory, thereby recovering files, folders and documents that you thought were lost and that no other program could recover.

Those of you who have had disk trouble and who have written to me in desperation know DiskWarrior is my go-to answer, so if you do not own it already, and don’t win it here, go buy a copy. You’ll be glad you did.

To enter: Since DiskWarrior is the weapon of choice when fighting damaged disks, leave us a comment with the coolest imaginary weapon in TV/Film/videogame history. It could be the Death Star from Star Wars, The Sword of Omens from Thundercats, or Sticky Grenades from Halo 3 (but we all know it is the Glave from the movie Krull). Winners will be picked randomly 7 days later and notified (kind of like in The Ring, only with less killing… we hope). Open to all readers world wide. Good luck, and thanks for reading Macenstein! (Oh, and be sure to enter ALL our “12 Days AFTER Christmas” Giveaways!)
Please note: Comments may take a while to show up, please do not double-post. Thanks!

  18. Laura F says:

    Lightsaber followed by the phaser.

  19. Billy says:

    The Death Star is cool, but I have limited need to destroy many planets, so I like the Phaser, it can be used a utility tool to heat up objects, stun people, and burn through most material. It can be used over a long range, before someone with a lightsaber could get close, they would be toast.

    All you need is the Force. That overcomes any weapon you hold in your hand any day, any time, any where. Provided you know how to use it, of course! With the Force I can crush a skull, throw you across the room, take your weapon from your hands, impel you with 100,000 volts or even make you want to leave me alone. What’s more powerful than that, hmmm?
