The general idea of HDD Serial Commander is to run command in queue. Very much like actions in Photoshop. You record or in this case prepare your queue and run it. Therefore all manipulation with commands is done from Command QUEUE (right side of the screen).

Drag and drop the command from the command directory tree to either command queue or to command form on the left-terminal side. You can also run individual command by double-clicking on the command and hit GO!

Command Builder

To run command builder double click on the command from Command QUEUE only.
