disk_stat - Show the details of a disk - LINUX ONLY
works in only Linux and uses ATA commands to query a harddisk. The
important information that it currently gives is the actual number
of sectors and if there is a Host Protected Area (HPA) on the disk.
The options are as follows:

disk_stat first appeared in The Sleuth Kit v1.73.

also not work on ATA disks connected with USB or Firewire.
