    Excellent stuff! I just have to figure out how to get the Dell PERC/LSI MegaRaid card working with the CCTL command.

    Thanks for the info and tips. I'll give it a go when I have some time to play around with it. Don't bother with the FTP. Did you end up getting your new Samsung drives? Did they play nice with CCTL/ERC?

    Well someone has to be the first right I'm afraid I have some catching up in the Linux space and would have issues doing half of what you mentioned above :S I'm using a Dell PERC 5/i card (rebranded LSI MegaRAID card) that should work fine with the smartmontools. I tried one of the Linux Live CD's yesterday and it seems to be recognizing the card, but I'm having issues getting the commands to work. I know the ERC commands won't work, but I kept on getting errors just trying to query the HDD connected to the card. I guess I'll have to look into that a bit more. I'm thinking that as long as Greg's ERC version of smartmontools is compiled and loaded onto a bootable live distro, that should suffice. I might be wrong as I'm only speculating. Anyways, I would appreciate if you could upload an image of the USB stick somewhere (or PM me for e-mail) so I could give it a go. Thanks!

    I'm also after the information regarding the 2T Samsung drives. I will probably just get them in a week or so and give it a go. I'm sort of in the same boat as I'm using a hardware RAID card with a Windows OS. This means I will have to run a Linux version of the tool (for hardware RAID support) and then reboot before loading Windows. I'd be forever grateful if you would like to share a copy of your USB stick if you don't mind. I could then edit the command to suit my setup. Thanks
