Need information about spin up time


#1

Noob question: I have WD red for 2 months but I noticed that with time slowly degradation of spin up time. Is this normal?

My old WD green was replaced after 35 000 of working hours and with spin up tme of 6.8 seconds.

I did`t pay attention to this value before, maybe is completely normal…


#2

I would over look it. I got 18/k hours and less than 100 spin ups on my wd green/ the degradation could be drive finally getting stuff on it…

100 spin up? You mean 10s spin up time?


#4

bump

other opinion?

I have similar values on mines.
if my memory serves me right I had lower values at the beggining till a had some power outage.
if you don’t listen any weird sound on start up they must be healty.
what kind of software did you use for that graphic ?

It is picture from HD sentinel. Here is current status from HD tune and WD data lifeguard:

What is your current value and how old is your HDD? Is there max number for that value? I didn`t have any power outage.

Under smart tab

my graphic is empty it doesn’t show anything. I would probably need the PRO version…?


#10

I have PRO. Maybe is needed for that, don t know. Can you post here HD tune SMART screenshot so we can compare?


#11

compare what ? I don’t know what HDD you are referrring to because you take a screenshoot and cut the upper part out. is there anything to hide ?
