Software Sunday EP4: Sea Tools for DOS Bootable Hard Drive Diagnostic Tool. Today on Software Sunday I want to show you a piece of software that I have been using for a very long time to test out hard drives. Seagate's drive diagnostic tool "Sea Tools for Dos" makes testing hard drives a quick and easy task. Just throw in the bootable CD/DVD, select the proper boot device, and use the simple GUI to choose what you want Sea Tools to do. It can run diagnostics, resize drives, and turn specific drives in your system off so you can isolate any odd sounds. It comes as both a bootable version and version which you can run on Windows.
Sea Tools for DOS is a great diagnostic tool to have laying around! It allows you to quickly run simple hard drive diagnostic tests on nearly any system. One thing that I would like to see in the future is the display of the drives smart data, Run time, start up cycles, temps, ect... I am not sure how hard this feature would be to implement but it would be a really convenient one to have on a piece of bootable software like this.
