DriveSavers has just launched its first iPhone app. The company says
it’s the first and only hard drive simulator for the iPhone and iPod
touch. It’s free and is available at the Apple App Store

Known as DriveSaver, it features a virtual environment that allows
you to explore the inner workings of a common hard drive. It
simulates various types of hard drive failures using realistic sounds
and visuals and includes essential backup and data loss prevention

“DriveSaver is a fantastic demonstration tool to help illustrate hard
drive data storage technology,” says John Christopher, senior data
recovery Engineer at DriveSavers. “It’s educational, it’s functional
and it’s fun! It might even help you identify problems with a bad
hard drive. Anyone who has ever wanted to see inside a hard drive or
learn how drives work and why they fail, must try it.”
