No it's not, you can see what packages they include on their page, scroll down.

There is no magical way software fixes failing harddrives, just to see them broken, wipe data, format, partition them, etc.

If the harddrive is giving issues I suggest copy the data before you can't.

 

I usually do the freeze trick for bad ones long enough to copy the data or find a harddrive the same and swap the platters or logic board.
