Thanks to your HDD recommendations, I was able to snag a 4TB HGST Deskstar NAS drive
at Newegg today.
Wondering how you guys stress test new HDDs (especially since Newegg is notorious for not securely packaging drives)
I used to run the following tests on WD Red and other WD drives using "WD Lifeguard Diagnostics":
Quick, Extended, Write Zeroes and Extended again
For HGST drives, would you guys recommend "WD Lifeguard Diagnostics" or "HGST Windows Drive Fitness Test (WinDFT)"? I would assume the second one..
Would greatly appreciate any comments. Thanks for your time..
