SMARTReporter 2.0b1 Description:
SMARTReporter is an application that can warn you of (S)ATA hard-drive failures before they actually happen! It does so by periodically polling the S.M.A.R.T.-status of your hard-drives. S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology) is a technology built into most modern hard-drives that acts as an "early warning system" for pending drive problems. Because SMARTReporter relies on the S.M.A.R.T. implementation of Mac OS X, it only supports (S)ATA hard-drives, if you want S.M.A.R.T. support for your SCSI, USB or FireWire hard-drive, send feedback to Apple.
