    The Partition Manager v10.0 Build 7893 (20.03.09 ) Server Edition has a bug when displaying the Drive Serial Number.

    Right-click on a basic Seagate Hard Disk in Disk View and select "Properties" from the context menu.
    I tried it on models: ST3500418AS and ST31000528AS under Windows XP SP3

    The "Serial Number" appearing in the "General" tab is truncated (the last character is missing).
    The following URL states that all Seagate Serial Numbers are 8-characters alphanumeric strings.
    Paragon Partition Manager v10 lists only the first 7 characters.

    Also the following shareware program lists the drive serial number correctly so it is not a problem of a stingy hard drive firmware:

    (...use the demo_vcl.exe file inside the archive to obtain the serial number)

    Hi verpies,

    Our developers have informed me that when the engine for Partition Manager was originally written, 7 digit serial #'s were the standard. We will update the product to display longer serial #'s properly in future releases.

    Thank you very much for taking the time to post your feedback; much appreciated.
