i have 2 disks : 40 Gb IDE Maxtor
Both report smart errors on startup - which cannot be reset
Both can be tested with Powermax, and give a 0 error result
I have installed XP on them, without problems, read them, written to them, in fact everything is OK, except the error at startup; i use them some months now.
So there is the question : what is bad, and IS there in fact something bad or not ?
i am starting to get S.M.A.R.T. doubts....
any insight on this will be appreciated !
