T.E.C. date - the date of predicted Threshold Exceeded Condition (T.E.C.) for current attribute, i.e. it is a rough estimate date when attribute value will drop below its threshold.
Active SMART uses special algorithms to predict the date of the T.E.C. for every S.M.A.R.T. attribute. To maximize accuracy of the date prediction Active SMART shows the T.E.C. date for attribute only after two changes of it's value. It allows us as much as possible increase the date calculation accuracy. Note: This date is not an exact drive fail date, it's only estimated date and it should be used only as advisory data.
heh. don't power supply faults/limitations suck? That's how i lost my GeForce 4 Ti4200. Power Supply in my Sony Vaio wasn't NEAR powerful enough to maintain it. *sniff* will always miss it. *thinks* wait, i have a 5700 now......
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
