Ask Dr. SCSI – Quick Profile Test?

Q. I thought that profiling was politically incorrect, but you’ve got a Quick Profile Test – what’s up with that?

A. Profiling people may be bad, but Quick Profiling disk drives is a good thing! You get an instant snapshot of the drives behavior as far as transfer rates, defects, some common mode page settings, and error counts. And best of all, you get it Quick – that’s why it’s called the Quick Drive Profile. For slightly more detailed info on the drive just double-click on the drive icon – you’ll get more error details, and it’s just about as Quick.
