Windows 7: HD Tune, unsafe shutdown count meaning?

HD Tune, unsafe shutdown count meaning?

I shutdown properly every single time and I notice the number of Unsafe Shutdown Count is the same as Load Cycle Count and only for my Hitachi drives. The 1TB WD Black does not exhibit this problem.

I Googled for over an hour and could not find any relevant information on this particular S.M.A.R.T. value.

*edit* – Ok, I think I know what it means now, C0 Power-off Retract Count or Emergency Retract Cycle Count (Fujitsu) - Count of times the heads are loaded off the media. Heads can be unloaded without actually powering off.

S.M.A.R.T values are NOT standardized and interpretation is manufacturer unique and, even then, varies from model to model.

Personally, I'd simply ignore HD Tune.

Run chkdsk X: /R where you substitute the desired letter for X:

Incidentally, a very easy way to view ?smart? values is with SPECCY (link in my signature).

Ah yes, almost forgot about Speccy.
