You simply use the Set Max Address function to set the apparent drive size to whatever you want it to be.

Not a real big thing, but a strange oversight by the program author. Jul 09, 2009 Only one Set Max address command per poweron message i decided to disable the the HPA and run 3. 1 to see what results i would get. after booting it up HDDerase reported 78, 165, 3 60 sectors, with a 1 sector discrepancy compared to HDAT2.
