Add-In: Home Server SMART

Home Server SMART is a new add-in which enables you to monitor the health of most of your hard disks attached to your Windows Home Server.

Home Server SMART Main Windows

If problems are detected on your attached disks then Home Server SMART will inform you which attribute(s) are critical or problematic, and it presents a summary of problems found. If the problems are serious, Home Server SMART will make a recommendation to you that you replace the disk.

Home Server SMART Status

IDE (PATA) and SATA (including eSATA) disks are supported, whilst USB and IEEE 1394 (FireWire) are not fully supported due to the un-standardized manner in which the data is reported.

    Looks noce and I’m going to give this a try. One small remark; using Comic Sans Italic is not done anymore 🙂

    I tried this out this morning and was immediately glad to indications of two PATA hard drives not looking good (degraded). Am in the process of removing them now. Excellent.
