SMARTReporter is an application that can warn you of (ATA) hard-drive failures before they actually happen! It does so by periodically polling the S.M.A.R.T.-status of your (ATA) 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 ATA-hard-drives, if you want S.M.A.R.T. support for your SCSI or FireWire hard-drive, send feedback to Apple. IMPORTANT NOTE: This is a public-beta release, so it may or may not work as advertised. It may even destroy your computer and burn down your house, so use it at your own risk. If you encounter any bugs or problems please write a DETAILED bug-report so I can fix it.
