Every time I click download it takes me to this page titled sneaky something or whatever. But it doesn't actually download. So how do I get this program? Can someone help me?

You can easily update this to 5.39 or later yourself. I used MacPorts to install the latest smartmontools, then just replaced the binary in the application (in case it's not obvious, close the smartmenu down before you do this):

sudo port install smartmontools

sudo rm /Applications/Utilities/smartctl.app/Contents/Resources/smartctl

sudo cp -p /opt/local/sbin/smartctl /Applications/Utilities/smartctl.app/Contents/Resources

The program is working just fine. This is only a wrapper around the binary to allow it to be in your menubar. I do appreciate the fact that it gives more detailed output than SmartReporter.

Great tip, Negritude. I use smartctl on dozens of Macs a week and have been wondering how to update it to the latest smartmontools database. Your tip worked like a charm!

smartctl will also work on Intel-based systems, although currently not compiled as an Universal Binary.
