SMARTReporter

Version 3.1.17

Hard drive pre-failure warning utility.

SMARTReporter overview

SMARTReporter is an application that can warn you of some hard disk drive failures before they actually happen! It does so by periodically polling the S.M.A.R.T. status of your hard disk drive. S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology) is a technology built into most modern hard disk drives that acts as an "early warning system" for pending hard disk drive problems. SMARTReporter can notify you of impending hard disk drive failures by sending e-mails, displaying a warning dialog or executing an application. The current status of your hard disk drives is always displayed through the customizable menu item. Because SMARTReporter relies on the S.M.A.R.T. implementation of OS X, it only supports ATA, SATA or eSATA hard disk drives, if you want S.M.A.R.T. support for your FireWire hard disk drive, send feedback to Apple. Please note that a S.M.A.R.T. alert doesn't mean that your HDD will completely fail for sure, nor can S.M.A.R.T. catch all possible HDD errors - it's just a very valuable indicator.

.. while Console is showing me a heavy rain of I/O errors, this "tool" is smiling unimpressed ... no reason to give it any space on my SSD ... :( I can't really see, where all the "great" comments might come from ... (iMac 9.1 under El Capitan checking a SanDisk SSD PLUS 1000GB)

A very useful utility to check (and promptly get notified by email) your Internal or Thunderbolt based drives for SMART status, I/O errors, RAID status and Disk space usage. Lightweight and responsive, has been a saviour for a couple of times in the past.

When I did a check on my iMac I noticed under I/O Errors that they showed 3 checked disks. That must include a fusion drive as 2 and my TM backup drive as 1.

Is SMARTReporter compatible with an iMac (Retina 4K, 21.5-inch, 2017) Fusion Drive? I have version 2.7.3, which appears to be working and offers me to update to version 3. However, Disk Utility information says S.M.A.R.T. status "Not Supported."

It appears that this app DOES NOT WORK WITH SSDs (Solid State Drives, like the ones Apple has been using in MacBooks for years since they abandoned HDDs). So, this is only useful for older Macs with HDDs. Please correct me if I’m wrong.

I bought SMARTReporter 3.1.4 directly from CoreCode (through esellerate). I'm now on v. 3.1.7 while 3.1.9 was released meanwhile. It seems I cannot download the latest version from their site anymore (nor at esellerate). And automatic update isn't working...

This is one of the applications that I deem essential. I install it on all of my Macs. He constantly monitors hard disks and warns you before by email if you find any failure or potential failure.

SMARTReporter is using 99% of the CPU all the time, on Mavericks and on Yosemite. I have to quit it as fans are running like crazy.

SMARTReporter is the first third party app I install on every new OS X installation. It's a textbook example of a small footprint app with just the right features. This sort of app is deceptively difficult to create, since the temptation is to bloat it with extra features to make it better. SMART status, RAID status, IO error status, and Disk Space monitoring. A clearly designed icon. Perfection. Many years ago, SMARTReporter tipped me off to IO errors in a Powermac, which were caused by a failing PSU. Almost the moment I finished backing up my data, the PSU began to blow smoke and the Powermac crapped out on me. The IO error warning saved me DAYS of trouble! At $5, SMARTReporter is an absolute steal.

I no newbie to Mac; I've been using Macs since 1984. I'm not so paranoid and terrible at backing up but I use all the diagnostic utilities I can find. However, SMARTReporter is my only five-star appl. It's bright-green. It's in the menubar. What could be simpler than that? It saved my bacon on my new MacBook Pro AND MacBook Air this winter. Thank you CoreCode!

In addition to all the technical merits mentioned herein, the tech/customer support is first-class. Email is competently and politely answered (by the developer) the same day, usually within the hour; couldn't be better.
