SMARTReporter is an application that warns of some hard disk failures before they actually happen by periodically polling the built-in S.M.A.R.T. status of hard disks as well as performing other checks for "I/O errors" or R.A.I.D "degradation". SMARTReporter features checks for four different problem types, many customizable notification options for detected problems (including e-mail and on-screen notifications), and numerous advanced options like performing S.M.A.R.T self-tests (automated or on-demand), S.M.A.R.T. attribute checking (automated or on-demand) and plotting graphs of all acquired data over time. SMARTReporter 3 is highly praised by its users, earning 4 stars on MacUpdate online and even 4.5 stars on the Mac App Store, from more than 60 user reviews.
