S.M.A.R.T. for USB and FireWire Drives is a kernel driver for OS X external usb or firewire drives. It extends the standard driver behaviour by providing access to drive smart data. The interface to smart data is same as with ATA family driver, so most existing applications should work. The driver requires a SAT (SCSI ATA translation) capable external drive enclosure.

The driver consists of a kernel extension and a user client interface library.

The code is based on Apple opensource files and is therefore published under Apple Public Source License.
