Why do you need to run Spinrite on the drive?
I have not had to run that program on a drive in many many years.
In the beginning there was the command line.

Hello Shogun697,

If you purchased Spinrite, you can use it as many times a you need on your own computer.

To put Spinrite on a USB Flash drive, go to the Spinrite FAQs page: Here.

Scroll down the page and look for: How do I make a bootable USB thumb drive??
