Restoring Full Drive Capacity on SAS, SCSI and FC HDDs

A new feature in the upcoming STB Suite version 8.7 is an easy menu command to restore the full original capacity of a SCSI/SAS/FC disk drive which has been short-stroked.

Here is a picture of the device display, showing two of the same model drives, one of which had been short-stroked down to 999MB –

To restore Target 270 to its original full capacity simply click on the drive to select it.


Then go to the top menu Disk->Commands choice, the Capacity/Block Functions, and finally to the new Restore Full Capacity command –

The current capacity is shown –


click the Restore Full Capacity button – you should see a message that the full capacity has been restored –

And finally you will see the new updated drive capacity information –
