Bought used hardrive,power on hours=0

I bought a samsung spinpoint 500gb used hard drive on ebay,it's in flawless condition,and interestingly it showed 0 power on hours and start/stop cycles when i checked in 'HD Tune' as if it was new.Is it possible that retailer could somehow reset it's hours count because i doubt it's actually new altough it looks like that.

  1. Yes it's possible to reset the SMART attributes, but that requires Samsung's factory utilities, or expensive data recovery software.
