And also I had never seen HDAT2 before either.

The DOS port of testdisk seems about the best for recovering dying flash drives. I'd be more inerested in a DOS utility whose sole intention is to verify and work with SSDs, verifying them quickly, remapping bad 'sectors' (bad blocks), and giving SMART status, etc

And UPX seems very buggy and finicky. Doesn't compress some files (FP3, et al) and others it can't decompress properly, even when compressed with UPX itself.
