Disk Utility may not warn of a failing hard drive
Authored by: BMarsh on Sep 30, '10 08:48:28AM

SMARTreporter not only checks SMART - allows you to run SMART tests (beyond the normal SMART status), but it now also checks for I/O Errors in the system log.
And it is free.

(I have it set for close friends & family to email me if it runs across an error, in addition to putting up a dialogue on the system to warn the user)
