Information about HDD health status.
HDD N Status
HDD Model: HDD vendor and
model read from IDE-controller.
HDD Default Size: Real HDD
size read from the IDE-controller. Due to the two different ways of
defining 'megabyte' your hard disk capacity can be calculated in
two different ways: after calculating the number of bytes in the
formula heads*sectors*cylinder*512-bytes-per-sector you may get the
result in the unit 'megabyte' by dividing either by 1024*1024 (like
in the BIOS of the computer does) or by 1000*1000 (like the
producers of hard disks do).
Serial Number: HDD unique
Controller Revision: Number
of the revision returned by the IDE-controller.
HDD Marketing Size: The
marketing size much more than real size. In one 'computer' megabyte
of 1048576 bytes, but in one 'marketing' (used by HDD
manufacturers) of 1000000 bytes.
Buffer Size: Buffer size of
the IDE-controller (you shouldn't mix it up with disk cache). Part
of the buffer can be used for system
purposes, and its real size can be smaller. Some hard disks don't
provide information on the buffer size.
ATA Controller Vendor:
Vendor of ATA controller
ATA Controller Name: Name
of ATA controller
Device Location: Device
location on the ATA controller
HDD Temperature: Current
temperature of HDD.
Reallocated Sectors: Number
of reallocated sectors.
HDD Health Status: Can be
one of four values:
