i would disagree.
the DOS version works perfect for my old Green drive and my New Black drive WD1002FAEX
but every single time i run either in the last numerous versions of Windows DLG,
i get Smart status is NOT available and limited functionality of the program compared to the DOS ver.
And luckily i am smarter than WD’s software or i probably would panick and start an RMA
because it always says Warning when i look at the properties on my current Black drive. (Green did tha too)
I have watched it like a hawk keeping tabs on Temp’s on my desktop 24/7 w/ Aida64 and and i have HDD sentinel running 24 hrs a day and i load up HDD Tune Pro ocasionaly and i know for a fact my drive is in flawless mint condition and have had no problems in any way. contrary to WinDLG stating my drive status is Warning !
this is not not new either… it’s a common and old problem.
try it but i would go for the DOS version too… the windows version is unreliable !
