Ah, I see. So it's primarily intended for diagnosing and recovering
from physically defective disks. Good to know, because there are
times when you exactly need to do this. So it's much more "hardware

So the strange mentioning of "Linux and other file systems" just
seems to be of a marketing nature. :-)
