    Sorry if this is the wrong section I wasn't sure which place to ask this question.

    I have a server which I have just purchased 6 new HDD well these drives are 6tb each and I want to test them make sure no issues.

    Now the question is which software or boot type disc can I use to test multi drives at the same time? (don't mind if it can only be say 2-3 together still better then 1)

    Scanning one at a time is not really an option the time it would take is massive at around week+

    Isn't SMART data enough to see if the drives are in good condition?
    the tests themselves shouldn't take that long to complete
