Hard drive pre-failure warning utility.

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.

This has all been commented on before and is obvious to many, but its still worth repeating: 1) For all your efforts in maintaining a Hard Disk, it's dying from the moment you purchase your Mac. When its eventually going to go, it will go and you will not stop that happening whatever disk recovery/ maintenance app you use. 2) The best form of data protection is to regularly back up. Do not rely on SmartDisk or any other similar app to save your data. Regular, preferably hourly backup will save the vast majority of your data. 3) If you're aware of impending Hard Drive failure, just backup again if you can (which won't take too long because the last backup was done recently, right?) 4) It is impossible to tell exactly when a Hard Drive will fail. However, with SmartReporter, the chances of getting a warning of a failing drive are improved, especially as it will email you if it identifies something to worry about. There are other paid-for apps that do a similar, or some would say better job than Smart Reporter. But whatever app you go with, its not much use without consideration of points 1 to 4 above. In this respect, I'm happy to have Smart Reporter installed, in conjunction with my use of AppleJack, Onyx and Diskwarrior to maintain my drive for as long as possible before it inevitably dies. Smart Reporter sits in the menu bar ready to warn me when my Disk's about to die. Its Menu Bar presence also serves as a regular reminder to backup but if my Drive did die, touch wood, I would have lost at most an hour's worth of data. Its in the context above that this and similar apps should be used. You can pay for this kind of app if you want to, but with Smart Reporter you don't have to as its free. Thank you developer.

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.

it works with most SSDs except those that don't support S.M.A.R.T. (e.g. the 2016 and 2017 Macbook Pro models where Apple has abandoned S.M.A.R.T. support)

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...

you can *always* download the latest esellerate version here:
https://www.corecode.io/smartreporter/volume_purchase.html

if you have trouble with the automatic update check of the eSellerate version, just drop us a mail at feedback@corecode.io and we'll happily investigate
