Seems like that command does not apply to my drive, which is "F3 Barracuda" type? It is an ST1000DM003
Maybe what I need to do is "short" the Read Channel pins on the board to get to the Terminal?
Or the other option I have within the software is this:
"Disable Bad Sector Reallocation & Background Activities
" - would that help? There is a button to set it back to "Defaults
", so I don't think there is any harm in trying this , but please correct me if I am wrong.
