Disk Utility may not warn of a failing hard drive
Authored by: fahirsch on Sep 30, '10 03:34:02PM

Whenever I have to service a mac the first thing I do is use Smart Utilities. It's fast and tells me enough to report to the owner if the drive needs replacement. Again and again I have seen Disk Utilities say there was no problem and the problem was a disk failing. Smart Utlities is fast and simple. Many times I tell a client to download it and run. If the result is Failed or Failing I tell them to go to Apple and have the disk changed
It may be overkill for the home user, but for the technician it's extremely useful.
