If you do go with Spinrite, then OK the current version may limit at 2Tb
(not sure of that myself) but there is a newer version in the pipeline
that will be a major advance in the size of drive it can work with, and
the amount of data it transfers in one hit, greatly speeding up the test
times.   Current version 6 owners (no doubt that will be verified) are
said to be able to get the new version for free, when it is released.
