Show the details of a disk - LINUX ONLY
disk_stat works in only Linux and uses ATA commands to query a hard-disk. The important information that it currently gives is the actual number of sectors and if there is a Host Protected Area (HPA) on the disk.
disk_stat [-V] hd_device
|hd_device||The device corresponding to the hard disk. Typically it is /dev/hdX.|
disk_stat first appeared in The Sleuth Kit v1.73.
It is based on code from http://www.win.tue.nl/~aeb/linux/setmax.c
disk_stat works only in Linux and does not support large disks. It will not work on ATA disks connected with USB or Firewire.
