Best way to test a hard drive in Linux!?

Recommended Posts

Best way to test a hard drive?

Title pretty much says it all. What do you guys use to test hard drives? 
I have one that I believe was bad but can't remember; in the last weeks it had several sitting around and failed to label the bad one.

They all use SMART data to determine the health of the drive. Smartmontools is the standard smart tools package.

see http://sourceforge.net/projects/smartsuite/


assuming one runs Ubuntu: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Smartmontools

but what to do on MX-Linux!?

Use SMART and tools to monitor health, then RAID the drives until they fail!
