Both HDDs show that each was started twice - once at the factory I would
assume and then when I started them for the above test.

This indicates to me that these figures for Seagates - as I think it was
you who suggested this - is normal.
Indeed. Yes, and yes :-)

However, I will send to Seagate the smartctl tests for the HDDs re which
I started this thread to ask them what Seagate think of the figures.
If they answer at all, I mean a human response, not a robot or a flower
pot, it would be very interesting to learn about it ;-)

I received the response from Seagate Support last night and it was that there does not appear to have anything to worry about.

But they also suggested that I download the latest SeaTools - which I did - and run tests against each of the HDDs just to confirm S.M.A.R.T.'s results. I haven't done this yet.
