Can the preclear utility be used on drives for other systems?

Hi all,

 

I've been running my tower trouble free for over a year.  Thank you all for that as your advise, in this forum, has helped tremendously!

 

I was wondering if I should preclear new hard drives that I intend using in other systems?  I'm building a new ESXi server with ten drives and I'd like to burn-in the drives before I put them into the server.

 

Thanks in advance for the help!

absolutely.  It will burn in the drives just fine.  (Many people do exactly what you are describing, even for drives for other systems, since it let you find many bad drives BEFORE you store your data on them.)
