Earlier this month I had ordered a Seagate Ironwolf 4TB NAS drive that passed the SMART long test inside my Synology, but failed the Short Generic test in Seatools when I ran it in Virtual Box VM with a Windows 10 guest OS and MacOS Mojave host. I have since returned the disk, but I am now wondering if Seatools actually has been known to work in VirtualBox.

Apart from satisfying my curiosity, I am still in the market for some additional HDDs, and wanted to know if I can get some variety by trying my luck with Seagate again, or just go all-in with WD.
