Example of Verifying Data Integrity

As part of the OWC Mercury Accelsior E2 flash module swap process, I wanted to be certain that all data was intact, with rigor.

diglloydTools

This is easy with the right tools— use Integrity Checker update before the change, and IntegrityChecker verify after the flash module swap. Suspicious files: 0. It’s not just nice to have certainty, it’s essential.

For the 480GB single-volume Accelsior and the pair of RAID-0 striped Accelsiors, I used the command line version of IntegrityChecker to verify perfect data integrity before and after the swap (a GUI version can be used also).
