I have got an external segate hard drive that connected to my laptop through USB cable, I doubt that there is a problem, then I decided to test it by using : Segate seatool utility (windows version not dos version) that I have downloaded from segate site.
I can see the external hard drive :
But the test option is unavailable!!!!
Is there any other utility that can test such a USB connected HD ?
I knew that we can connect faulty hard disk directly to the mother and then run the test from CD or floppy, but this is not feasible in my case
