RE: [vox-tech] Hard Disk Info

Thanks a lot Guys!
I'll check those "T's" options.  I didn't notice that the first line of
hdparm -I is the model ID of the HD, Duh!

Hello Alfred,

The option I usually use is hdparm -i or -I to get the actual hard drive 
information.  This may give you the manufacturer and model number.  With 
the info you can look up the drive on the manufacturers web site to get 
the specifications on the drive.  If you do a man hdparm you will get 
more information on the -i and -I options.

Hope this helps,
