Lenovo Solutions Center sw doesn't run Smart Drive Self Test but passes Smart Short Self Test

Seagate Model ST500LT012-1DG142

At the end Lenovo Solutions Center still passes the HD - did not run Smart Drive Self Test - says Not Applicable - why?

It is made in 2014 and has 36hrs power on.

I did buy a new WD hd but this T430S needs a thin hard drive - WD is not.

Try using Seagate Seatools instead http://www.seagate.com/support/do.../seatools/ instead. I have never found the Lenovo Solutions center to be very useful, and it consumes quite a few resources.

Make sure in your BIOS it's set to Enable SMART data. Many OEM's shut this off to prevent extra support calls.

T430s - I did not see Enable SMART data in the bios of T430s.
But Seagate Seatools passed the test
