so i got some 3tb and 2tb and 1tb 7400rpm drives laying around my room and i wanted to put them to use in my rig. now one of them does make a bit of sound other then the basic spinning sound u get from a mech drive.
crystaldisk says its in good condition the same as my SSD so i was wondering if there was other programs i can use to confirm the status before i start putting data on the drives.
There is the SMART report and there are a few programs that can assess that information. One of the best programs there is SpinRite from GRC. It's not free, and not cheap but it is the most comprehensive tool out there. It's the type of thing a professional PC repair tech would use.
Worst comes to worst get a live linux distro and use disks. Here is my seems to be used for 5.5 years old Intel ssd relegated to windows and skyrim only. I bought the little trooper like 8-9 Years ago I think.
