Note: on the Configuration page, it is possible to configure the pattern to be written by the write test. By default, Hard Disk Sentinel writes zeroes (00 bytes) but it is possible to specify that all sectors should contain the sector numbers (may be useful in later data recovery) or even random data. Also it is possible to specify any byte/byte sequence as overwrite pattern. For example entering ABC in the byte/byte sequence field will cause that all sectors will contain ABC string repeating. In this option, it is possible to enter hex sequence, for example 0x99 0x88 0x77 to write such bytes. It is also possible to specify FILE=existing file name, then the contents of the file will be used as overwrite pattern.
