    It is common for us to wipe many drives with the same model number.
    Not having serial numbers makes it difficult if not impossible to know which drive failed.

    I see that the serial number displays in the log file like this.

    Device /dev/sdb has serial number 4LS1YPVH

    But it cannot be matched up with status screen.

    Otherwise I like it thanks..

    Thanks for the suggestion. I have just created a new version in github which provides some more information on the status screen. However, I can't test it properly, as my hard disk does not display serial number. Can you try it please before it forms part of a release?
