SMART - "Spin up Time" Question
Posted 25 June 2003 - 11:41 PM
I've usually considered this as unimportant, but I'm just wondering exactly what it is measuring. Is it simply the time that it takes to reach a given RPM after power up and therefore unrelated to other data integrety parameters like bad/remapped sectors etc. Or is it somehow indicative of the health of the servo system or something like that as well ?

or possibly a stuck head...(or unreadable media)
Ok, that's kind of what I thought. So I guess the only problems that "spin up time" might indicate would be if your bearings were going or something then the spin up might get significantly slower.

Just wondering if that is normal ?

Yeah, I really didn't think it was anything to worry about, however my old WD800BB has had this field at 100% since new. The bearings sound fine (cant hear them) and also I dont notice any "re-training" or "re-calibrating" sounds or anything else unusual when its spinning up.
