This download creates a self-booting DOS diskette to run the DFT utility. The Drive Fitness Test (DFT) provides a quick, reliable method to test SCSI and IDE hard disk drives, including Serial-ATA IDE drives. The Drive Fitness Test analyze function performs read tests without overwriting customer data. (However, Drive Fitness Test is bundled with some restoration utilities that will overwrite data.)

Supports SCSI and IDE drives, including Serial-ATA drives

Note: Currently, the Drive Fitness Test does not support Microdrives, or Travelstar E drives. Learn more.
