S.M.A.R.T (Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology) often written as SMART is a monitoring system included in computer hard disk drives (HDDs), solid-state drives (SSDs), and eMMC drives.
Its primary function is to detect and report various indicators of drive reliability with the intent of anticipating imminent hardware failures. In this post, we will show you how to check SMART Failure Predict Status of drives in Command Prompt, PowerShell, and Performance Monitor.
If a hard drive (HDD) is currently in a turned-off state after being idle, it will not show up in this report. Only drives currently turned on and running will show up in this report.
This report will now start collecting data for 60 seconds. It may take up to an additional 60 seconds for the report to be generated.
If SMART Predict Failure Check shows FALSE with a value of 0 and Description shows as Passed, then no issues were found with the drive.
If SMART Predict Failure Check shows FALSE with a value other than 0, then look up the number for the ID in the table below for what it means.
Drives do not support all attribute codes (ID). Some codes are specific to particular drive types (magnetic platter, flash, SSD). Drives may use different codes for the same parameter.
If a drive is reported to have a critical status, it is recommended to back up and replace the drive immediately.
Normalized value is set to one on test failure or 11 if the capacitor has been tested in an excessive temperature condition, otherwise 100.
