Completely agree. My current complaint is that I like to use SpinRite to burn drives in, but it's doesn't properly handle drives larger than 2TB. I wish Steve Gibson would hurry up and update the program. What do you use for stress testing?

I use Hard Disk Sentinel. Very happy with this product.


There's this 'semi-destructive' surface test that I like to use wherein it reads the existing data, writes it back then reads it again and compare it with the original. On the 4TB that I recently did this test on, took almost 30 hours.




Other surface test modes are available, ranging from safe to destructive.




The application also allows you to do multiple passes to really weed out any potential problems. However, tests like these will likely take several days to complete.
