Hi !

On OLDER Toshiba (IDE) 2.5 drives the essentia firmware data stored on the platters like G-list, S.M.A.R.T., password, etc were stored on tracks 2, 21 and 27.

Does anyone knows for modern 2.5 SATA Toshiba drives whereis that nformation stored ?

I'm trying to locate the ATA Password sector and the S.M.A.R.T. data on the platters and it will be way faster if someone can tell me what tracks to read rather then reading all of them, locking the drve and read them all again to check for changes....

Many thanks.
