Seagate standalone software to tell the age of a harddrive?

ms2000 1,312 32 July 15, 2016 at 01:57 PM
I once downloaded a seagate software, from memory there was no installation needed - it will tell how long the HD was used along with other info.

Do any of you know what is it? Pointer to download? Thanks

you dare post something off topic......., nice job.

but the diskMark is only for benchmark, should post diskinfo's link instead

if the seagate tool isn't a single file, maybe it's just seatools, just an installed version, but only using the installed folder's files without reinstalling on other computers. most disk tools can run like that.

if it's a single file, i only seen "HD Tune" is like that, you can install then copy the main program to else where then uninstall. but the free version didn't update for years, so it's not better than other new tools.

I am assuming your just looking at the "on time" in the SMART data. Lots of software can do this and it doesn't have to be drive specific. What is the purpose of needing the drives age?

Many drives have a manufacture date on their label which is what's used for a warrant date.
