The current version of IBM/Hitachi Feature Tool included with UBCD no longer contains support for acoustic management settings; I believe it was removed in version 2.13. It'd be nice to have a version with AAM support included in addition to the latest one as I'm not aware of other tools that could be used to set the AAM values for these drives so that the settings persist after power cycles/reboots.

Older versions of the tool are available at least on older UBCD's, IIRC at least 4.11 contained one with AAM support.

Some old drives never supported AAM.

Some newer drives are not officially supporting AAM.

Instead of including in UBCD an older version of a tool just to support AAM (while downgrading the other options), I would suggest using an alternative tool.

Under Linux, one example is “hdparm”.

Under Windows, one example is “HDDScan”.

There are more alternatives available, just search.
