The decadent manufacturer tell you if your drive is failing already or it will fail! Seagate drives have the worst failure rate in their last 2 desktop generations. Barracuda 10 and 11 are just garbage.
Seagate would replace their smart test for just a basic model checker, one line only:
If HDD = (Barracuda 10 or Barracuda 11) and (HDD=Still_online) then it WILL FAIL on random (1min-6months).

Sorry to disappoint you, but as of Christmas Eve 2009 (aka 24 Dec 2009), Seatools 1.2.0.***1*** was out, not 1.2.0.*2*.

1.2.0.2 is a *newer* release - b/c as of Christmas / version 1.2.0.1, Windows 7 was not *officially* supported. Hence the version bump, to allow for Windows 7 Official Support.

No S.M.A.R.T. attributes shown, just OK or not OK.

This "new" release was released roughly an year ago.

I am an avid fisherman and use these SeaTools all the time ;p. I especially like the fish gutting utensil. -- joke

To previous reviewer: The official Microsoft developer recommendation is for applications to install dependencies into their own program files. This prevents them from over-writing other versions of those DLLs in the system folder. Of course, WFP fixes this issue for most system modules.

Seems to do what is says. But I take a point off because it installed the MS Visual C (2005) AGAIN. Why can't programs check to see if this is installed first? This is just like the days when old versions of Direct X would install over teh op of newer ones.
