Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology

Its a early-warning system for hard drive failure. If enabled, at booup the BIOS scans the drive, and S.M.A.R.T. reports whether the drive is about to fail or has failed or malfunctioned in some way. Programs like ActiveSmart provide realtime montioring of 35 essential mechanical parts of you hard drive from Windows.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
