The standard tests on the hard disks is a "read" test. You have to choose "Custom" to have it do "write" tests to HDD's.

The standard test will also do "read" tests to the Floppy and CD-ROM also...

G'luck! -john
Enjoy!

No... let me clarify...

If you choose Custom you "CAN" select destructive tests.
Even with custom testing selected, you can select tests that do not destroy data. There will be a message displayed on the screen warning you that a destructive test has been selected giving you warning that it will happen. Otherwise the tests do not.
Enjoy!
