I like Seagate too, the left is a 750GB MomentusXT (HDD+SSD Hybrid, 2.5") The one on the right is a Constellation 500GB, one partition of it that is.

Gary, have you ever tried running Seatools for DOS 2.23 on either of your Seagates? If so, did the program find the drives? Neither of my 2tb drives were found when running the DOS 2.23 version....Seatools for Windows found them and worked fine though.

No, Seatools for DOS found none of my drives and two are Seagate. I used it on a bootable USB flash stick using both YUMI (Your Ultimate Multiboot Installer) YUMI - Multiboot USB Creator (Windows) | USB Pen Drive Linux And UBCD (Ultimate Boot CD) Ultimate Boot CD - Overview
It would seen the 2.23 version needs a little work.

I used my UBCD USB stick, and I burned Seatools for DOS 2.23 on a CD and neither found my drives....it was very odd. I ended up using Seatools for Windows to Zero write the drive and then ran the Long duration Read test on it. Passed both tests, and it's ready to go. Glad to know it's not a problem specific to my system.

Thanks

You're welcome. I think UBCD has Parted Magic on it, I use the secure erase feature on it to wipe drives.

This is for my laptop's hard disk.


What does it indicate? Any suggestions to improve the performance?
