Hd S.m.a.r.t.



is it worth turning this on? what does it do?

S.M.A.R.T. technology?

basically it lets you know if there is impending hard-drive failure...

I leave mine on all teh time..

if it says imminent failure it allows you time to migrate data from one storage device to another...
of course, now i can't remember how to turn it on. can anyone help or is it something i would have to buy?
you set it in the BIOS, but I wouldn't just totally rely on S.M.A.R.T. to tell you your drive is going to fail.
it's been telling me for 5 month's 1 of my raid array drives was on it's way out...

funny thing happend this morning (right b4 i was going to make a backup *cough* )

it died :confused:

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?
