I see Wendel talk about using different tools to "stress test" SSDs and the like, and I find myself in need of doing the same with a few drives I have. I want to do a burn in on a few 3TB drives to make sure they're good and stable before I try to put anything on them again. They were in a RAID 5 and 2 of them dropped a couple of weekends ago and I am just now getting to seeing if the drives are the issue or of the controller is.
I have done some Googling and found the best solution so far to be doing a Butterfly scan using the HDDScan tool. I am running that now, but will definately be open to suggestions other wise. I know that the program should ideally fill the drive with data, check for the integrity of the data, then get rid of it, doing that about 3-5 times to ensure stability and reliability.
Thanks in advance,
