fsck on FAT32 filesystem?

Follow up is even more interesting than epilogue, 
especially:

"Another problem with the article is the fact that 
a magnetic force microscope, which is a scanning
probe microscope, is nothing like an electron 
microscope, and yet the article repeatedly refers to 
using an electron microscope to try and recover data 
(the same mistake has also been pointed out by 
others). So saying "the chances of recovery of any 
amount of data from a drive using an electron 
microscope are negligible" is quite true, in the 
same way that saying "the chances of recovery 
of any amount of data from a drive using an 
optical microscope are negligible" is true"

And DiskStroyer kit made me chuckle.

If I comprehend it correctly, that doesn't
make Gutmann method obsolete in principle,
it only means that those passes were tailored at
(various) old technology, and on modern drives 
could be bit overkill and just as good as random 
scrubs.

That's still makes a robust procedure, even If
overkill and dated (which isn't exactly bad 
thing).

Thanks for replies.
