SMART status for average Joe?
Authored by: Reddog on Aug 06, '04 11:29:30PM

Don't make the mistake of thinking that the SMART status check is a substitute for a backup (like I did). I found that my G4 wouldn't boot up several weeks ago and finally ended up buying a new hard drive. It was running fine one morning and DEAD the next :(

I'm still trying to recover the old drive data using Nortons, which is having trouble due to the high number of bad blocks. Yet, a SMART check using DiskWarrior still says everythings OK !!!
