Data that can be brought up and setting up e-mail notifications
This tool can detect and display information regarding your HDD, such as model number, firmware version, location, size, features and temperature. Aside from that, you can view S.M.A.R.T. attributes, such as raw read error rate, spin up time, start stop count, power cycle count, end to end error, offline scan uncorrectable count and UDMA CRC error rate, along with values, threshold, raw value, worst and status.
It is possible to configure e-mail alerts for S.M.A.R.T. failures, by specifying an “in” and “out” address, and an outgoing mail server. In addition to that, you can overprovision your drive, and preview space before and after the process.
