FAQs


Q : I tried to create/remove an HPA/DCO on my drive and it did not appear to work. What could be causing this issue?

While there are specifications that hard drive manufacturer's are required to follow, sometimes they are implemented differently. In most cases adding or removing an HPA/DCO requires a powercycle of the drives power between each step. The powercycle is not defined and some require a full shut down of the drive, while others only require a command to be issued to the drive. If you tried to create/remove an HPA/DCO and it did not work our suggestion is to physically power the dock product down after each step in the process.
