Re: [hard drive] Does anyone know how to read the SMART data?

Just download a copy of Hiren's boot disk and run Maxtor powermax from it and use the advanced test (powermax works w all brands of HD's) and go by what it says... passed or failed. It does not, like some HD manufactures diagnostic apps find and "repair" a bad sector which is pretty much pure BS... they are fixing a bad HD.

You just need to know if it is good or bad.

Hatachi DFT says the drive is good, GWSCAN says errors have been repaired. But GWSCAN looks like the WD DLG.
