Too much detail for me. I prefer utilities that give me a simple pass/fail.

I use Seagates Online test to check Smart Status and run a complete Drive Self Test. That or if rebooting is convient the maker utility found on the latest version of ultimate boot cd.

I suggest you run a DST however anyway you feel like and use the same utility to check the smart status.

If everything passes then you know the problems are not serious, if it fails then you know they are. :)
