How do I view SMART data in a logical drive? Solved

    How do I view SMART data in a logical drive?


    EDIT: I would have deleted this question if there was a DELETE button. The drive was listed under Physical Drives. I just needed to scroll down.

    Yesterday I ran a DLGDIAG (Western Digital Data Lifeguard Diagnostic for Windows) Extended test on a brand new Western Digital Elements 8TB USB drive. When the test completed at 3am (the result was PASS), I shut down my PC, planning to review the test results (a.k.a. SMART data) later. But this morning, when I restarted the PC and launched DLGDIAG, the drive showed up under "Logical Drives" rather than "Physical Drives," and I don't see any way to view the SMART data. How can I view it?

    I admit that I don't understand the distinction between logical and physical drives, and why the drive was originally seen as a physical drive while now it is seen as a logical drive. And why there is no option to view SMART data in a logical drive.

    I think there may be a time limit, and your limit depend on things like how long you've been a member and how many posts you've made.

    If there's no delete button you can click the 'Report Post' triangle near the bottom left of the post and ask a Mod to delete it for you.
