SMART Utility for Mac

New - Version 2!

An Early Warning System for your Mac

Drive Scope is like having a full-time Macintosh technician watching over your computer’s hard drives at all times. It keeps an eye on the drive health and warns you if it finds any indicators that your drives might fail soon. Utilizing your drives’ internal self-monitoring, analysis and reporting technology (SMART) status, it can often detect minor problems before they become major ones.

By warning you early about potentially pending drive failures, Drive Scope gives you the chance to back up your files and important data before they are lost forever.

The all-new Drive Scope 2 can now run in the background and check the health of your hard drives automatically. And there’s no need to be a tech expert to make it work—just set it up once and it will do its job quietly in the background.

Save money and avoid data loss with the best early-warning system that money can buy, while you gain peace of mind in knowing that your data is safe with Drive Scope.

New in Drive Scope 2!

Continuous Health Monitoring

Drive Scope 2 introduces continuous SMART health monitoring for all supported disks. Enabling monitoring starts a background process which keeps tabs on the health of your drives, and will notify you if a drive starts to fail.

Drive health at your fingertips

Along with continuous monitoring, you can check in on your drives from Drive Scope’s new menu bar item at any time. The menu provides at-a-glance access to the SMART health of all supported drives connected to your Mac.

Apple Silicon Support

Leave Rosetta behind. Drive Scope 2 now includes full Apple Silicon support. This includes an updated SAT SMART driver so that your Apple Silicon (and Intel) Mac can see SMART health data for supported USB connected SSDs*.

Glance for peace of mind

Even easier, add a Drive Scope widget to keep your Drives’ health status front-and-center. Sonoma users can add the widget to the Mac desktop to keep a constant eye on drive health.

The Most Complete SMART Utility for Mac

Hard drives (and solid state drives) are the most failure prone components in your Mac. For that very reason, in fact, drive manufacturers have built in self-monitoring, analysis and reporting technology right into the drive. (a.k.a. SMART) Most utilities barely scratch the surface of this information, simply reporting the bare essentials: pass or fail. Too often, once the overall failure has occurred, there isn’t enough time to get important data from the drive. With Drive Scope you can see into the health of most any drive† connected to your Mac.

The solid state drives (SSDs) that Apple uses in its newest Macs use a new connection type called NVMe. Other SMART utilities are unable to read the SMART attributes from these drives. Beginning with version 1.1.1, Drive Scope can read the data on these drives, providing access to your drive’s health data.

Building on the improvements to the SMART check in Techtool Pro, Drive Scope not only provides early warning when a drive is on the path to failure, but provides a deep dive into the health of the drive. See what errors have occurred, and when, along with whether the errors are temporary or an indicator of overall failure. You can even trigger the drive’s internal testing to run manually, providing instant access to up-to-date drive health information.

SMART Drive Health

With Drive Scope you can see the complete picture of your Drive’s health using the Drive’s SMART data. Granular information about each aspect of your drive is available for review. See each of the attributes that contribute to the drive’s health – in detail. See which attributes contribute to overall failure versus those that are merely informational.  

Supports Newest Solid State Drives - NVMe SMART Support

The latest Macs’ solid state drives replace the aging SATA connection with a new connection type, known as NVMe. This connection, until now, didn’t allow sharing of the drive’s SMART data. These modern SSDs display their health data a little differently, so you’ll see a different selection of tabs for these drives.

Control Over Testing

When you first open Drive Scope, an information page is displayed, summarizing all the critical information about your drive. See Drive Scope’s advanced health assessment at a glance, along with the number of errors encountered, as well as model and capacity information specific to your drive.

* Even with the SAT SMART Driver installed, some USB SSDs do not share data with macOS. A list of devices that are known not to be supported can be found in our knowledge base

† Drives in RAID enclosures may not be supported.

System Requirements:

  • Apple Silicon and Intel-based Macs
  • macOS 11 or greater, including macOS 14 ‘Sonoma’
