I am in the process of scanning a 320GB Drive with the Full Scan using Seatools DOS. It has been running for 28hrs and has only done 30%. Is it supposed to be this slow or is this an indication of a problem with the drive (initially suspected fault).
How long shoudl a full scan take x minutes/gigabyte.
I usually take the average read speed, say, 60MB/s and with a 320GB, it should take about an hour and a half to do one pass.
Is this a SATA or PATA drive? SATA drive shouldn't have any problems regarding configuration parameters, but if youre using PATA, the drive could be using some slower mode like PIO etc. to access the disk, hence it's taking longer.
