mac default iconSMART Utility For Mac Publisher's description

SMART Utility is an application to scan the internal hardware diagnostics system of hard drives.

SMART Utility is an application to scan the internal hardware diagnostics system of hard drives. SMART (Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology) is a system built into hard drives by their manufacturers to report on various measurements(called attributes) of a hard drive's operation. The attributes can be used to detect when a hard drive is having mechanical or electrical problems, and can indicate when the hard drive is failing. SMART Utility can read and display these attributes. This allows time to hopefully backup, and then replace the drive. SMART Utility also allows running a drive's built in self test, which can also indicate malfunctions on the drive.

* Displays all supported drives and their partitions
* Displays important information in the main window, such as drive model, capacity, power on hours, temperature, bad sector counts, and error counts and types
* Displays easy to read overall SMART status with color coded text
* Displays more detailed information in separate windows, including capabilities, all available attributes, and the past five errors
* Displays information using the Growl notification service (if installed)
* Supports saving drive reports for later viewing
* Supports printing drive reports
* Supports scanning in the background
* Supports running a hard drive's built-in test, and displays the results of the test
* Supports scanning OS X software RAID drives, as well as drives in many RAID enclosures and cards (including SeriTek drives)
* Supports logging all information to a log file for verifying SMART data
* Supports customizing the pre-fail algorithm, including only alerting new bad sectors and error counts
* Supports Mac OS X 10.4.11, 10.5 or later, including 10.6, and both PowerPC and Intel Macs
* Fully localized in French, thanks to Ronald A. Leroux
