TOPIC: External drive SMART checking

External drive SMART checking 04 Aug 2013 19:11 #4439

Since TTP can't check external drives out-of-the-box, I was looking for a solution. I found a possibility to allow TTP to check these drives: github.com/kasbert/OS-X-SAT-SMART-Driver Has MicroMat looked at this?

I have brought the program to the attention of our developers, after reading about it at MacInTouch weeks ago.

Great! It'd be nice if it could be licensed and integrated into TTP.

The only problem I see is the difficulty of determining in advance of installing the software whether a given external drive enclosure supports what the developer describes as "SAT (SCSIATA Translation)". I tried the program with my several-year-old G-Technology external drives, and it did not work. The beta administrator for TechTool Pro found that it worked on a few drives he had.
