SMARTReporter can warn you of hard-drive failures before they happen (for Mac X)



Quote
SMARTReporter description:
     
SMARTReporter is an application that can warn you of (S)ATA hard-drive failures before they actually! 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. SMARTReporter can notify you of impending drive failures by sending e-mails, displaying a warning dialog or executing an application. The current status of your drives is always displayed through the customizable menu item.

What's New in This Release:

· Make SMARTReporter finally work on the Intel-Macs
· Fixed a crash on Laptops that had a Flash-Card inserted
· Fixed a small memory leak
· Fixed a bug in the Disk-Image-packaging
· Fixed French translation (thanks to Ronald Leroux)
· Added a FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions - with answers ;-)
· Added some string-localizations.
