Reduce hard drive noise

and download FeatureTool. Apparently Segate 7200.7 PATA drives are already (hardwired) set for noise while the SATA segates are set for performance.

This tool should work on all drives though.


Hi Willy. Im not sure that this utility will run with another disk that is not Hitachi (or IBM that bought his hardisk to HItachi) I believe that is propietary. I have tryed the utility with a IBM disk. When you reduce the noise, appear that the performance is decreased, a little at least. Mainly, the hardisk manufacturers do their own utilityes, look if your seagate suppor the acoustic noise reduction and have it own utility
