You can any time save the current (even partial results) during the test in the following ways:
- if you prefer to save an image about the disk surface map, please use the small floppy disk button in the upper right corner of the disk surface test window
- if you prefer to save more detailed information, please right click on the disk surface map and select Save disk information (which can be re-load later in the software) or Export transfer speed values (which can be loaded in for example Excel).
There is no need to save the scan and the re-load it, because before starting the test, you can configure which particular block(s) you prefer to be tested.
For example if you save the (partial) results when the first 20% (2000 blocks) tested, then you can use:
Disk -> Surface test -> and in the new window when you select the test, select Configuration tab and use the "Limit testing to specific data blocks" option, to specify First block = 2001 and Last block = 9999.
This way the test will start from that specific block, so there's no need to test the previous 2000 blocks again.
