    Does anyone know how long the drive performance test takes? I'm getting a suspiscious test "overnight automated test" prompt. :confused:

    If it does take "overnight", would it cause damage to unplug now and restart test when no "must watch" recordings pending?

    Thanks!

    Is this for an external drive, or are you running a kickstart on your primary drive?

    BTW, yes you can power out and restart without injury. However if you have a failing drive, you probably want to discover that asap and begin to transfer any recordings dear to your heart right away. My drive failed the test, but I had time to clone and expand it to a new HDD.
