Posted by: Lightspeeds PC Repair
 
Hitachi Drive Fitness Test (DFT) is a free hard drive testing utility for diagnosing any possible problems with the hard drive in your computer. To help users quickly determine whether or not a hard drive is really malfunctioning. For a computer that has crashed or failed to boot-up, Hitachi Drive Fitness Test can determine if the main problem is with the hard drive in your computer.

Hitachi Drive Fitness Test (DFT) is universal and can be used to diagnose almost any type of hard drive. Drive fitness is a set of diagnostic tools to help ensure the quality and reliability of hard drives. These tools include DFT, Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology (S.M.A.R.T.), and Predictive Failure Analysis.

Available for floopy boot disk, OR an easier method – CD Image (ISO file). The easiest method to create the test disk is burning the “CD Image” to a CD using something like CDBurnerXP. Juts grab a blank CD, start CDBurnerXP (Runs on Vista & Windows 7), choose “Burn Iso”, browse to where you downloaded the DFT CD Image iso file, select and burn disk.
Your computer “boot order” must be set to CDROM in order to load, and start the disk at boot up. From there let the boot disk load, when you get to Hitachi Drive Test menu choose “Advanced” test, this is a much more thorough test for the drive, it will take longer. Sometimes the short or quick test will not report any errors.

As the Hitachi Drive Test runs it might stop short of completing, or complete with drive error message codes, OR if your lucky complete with no error messages – PASSED. You can pretty much assume if it does produce any type of error code(s), your drive needs to be replaced 98% of the time with these type tests.
