Drive Fitness Test
The Drive Fitness Test (DFT) quickly and reliably tests SCSI, IDE and SATA drives. The DFT analyze function performs read tests without overwriting customer data. (Note: other DFT restoration utilities may overwrite data.)


  • Ultrastar 10K300, Ultrastar 15K73 and DK32XX users, do not use DFT — Use the OGT Diagnostic Tool.
  • Does not support Microdrive Digital Media products.
  • Supports all Travelstar HDDs, except 8E, 10E and C4K series.
  • Does not support Endurastar products.
  • Does not support external USB or Firewire attached drives.
  • Compatible only with x86-based processors.
  • Does not support the PC which loads Intel ICH9M chipset. HitachiGST are working to fix this situation.

  • SCSI.
  • Serial ATA.
  • Parallel ATA.
  • IDE.

Analyzes Drive Fitness

  • Three modes of operation.
    - High confidence level quick test
    - Full media scan
    - Exerciser
  • Performs real-time analysis of your drive to quickly determine if problem exists.
  • Identifies system problems such as cable or temperatures.
  • Automatically logs significant drive parameters to track potential impacts to the drive operations (diskette version only).

Restores Drive Fitness

  • Erase-boot-sector utility (Use option: Erase Boot Sector).
    - Note: this utility overwrites customer data to allow repair of bad sectors.
  • Low-level format utility (Use option: Erase Disk).
    - Note: this utility overwrites customer data to allow repair of bad sectors.
