SCSI Disk Utilities
The SCSI Disk Utilities option displays information on SCSI IDs 0 though 15, list-
ing all devices on the bus including non-disk devices. When you select a device
from the list and press Enter key, another window appears giving you the option of
selecting one of two sub-utilities, Format Disk or Verify Media. These utilities are
used for hard disk drives only and will have no effect on other non-disk SCSI de-
Format Disk - is a SCSI low-level formatting utility. In general, SCSI hard drive
have already been low-level formatted when you get them, so you generally should
not need to use this function.
Verify Media - scans the selected drive media for defects, notifies you of any found
and gives you the option of reassigning bad blocks so that data will not be written to
them. This is only necessary if you suspect that your SCSI disk drive has a problem.
