[ubuntu] S.M.A.R.T. data on cloned drive same as original
Now, the problem. In “disks” I’ve found the new drive has nearly all the SMART data the same as the old drive. The new drive was manufactured in August of 2020–the old drive was 7 years old, yet “disks” tell me virtually the same things are wrong with the new drive–mostly “Old Age” and 2 “pre-Fails”. How can this be possible with a drive manufactured only two months ago? The only answer I can come up with is that Clonezilla was too efficient and copied EVERYTHING, including the SMART data.
Is there some step I missed that will erase the OLD data and give me the SMART readings for the new drive? I’ve tried “Refresh” but that only updates the amount of time the drive has been powered on (5+ hours). The “Help” entry in “disks” leads to “The URI ‘help:gnome-help/disk does not point to a valid page” so that’s out.
