Hard Disk S.M.A.R.T.
Possible values of an option:
[Auto], [Enabled], [Disabled]
The option description:
If you want to have the information on a state of the hard disk, it is important to you to know about a possible failure of this device, include ([Enabled]) this option. But for it you pay insignificant (it is possible even to tell, scanty) with reduction of productivity of the computer. If this information does not represent for you interest (on a disk simply there is no important data), it is possible to refuse constant monitoring ([Disabled]). The choice [Auto] if this value is present, automatically includes monitoring if it is supported by the drive.
Technology S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology — the technology of constant monitoring of the analysis and provision of reports) on the basis of the analysis of operation of the drive is capable to notify about a possible failure of a disk in the near future. Thus, seeing on the screen the warning of a critical state of a hard disk, you always have time to save the important data on the exterior carrier. Only it is not necessary to hope that S.M.A.R.T. It is capable to foresee any failures. Unfortunately, she finds out not all problems.
