  • Drive Overtemp --- 253

    Got this error on a couple hard drives I was running tests on using Seagates SeaTools utility. All test were run on older IDE Maxtor drives.

    Booted up to a floppy to run the tests.

    The information I found elsewhere on this error message is very vague, to non-existent.

    I would assume that the drive has at one time exceeded a critical temperature.

    But, I prefer not to assume things and find out for sure.

    Anyone familiar with this error?

    Would be nice to know exactly what it means and what it means for a drive that is getting this error during diagnostics, even if it passes all other tests which a couple drives have.

    CCA: XenApp 5.0
