SMART (S.M.A.R.T.), an acronym stands for Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology, is an open standard allowing an individual disk drive in the ATA/IDE or SCSI interface to automatically monitor its own health and report potential problems in order to prevent data loss. This failure warning technology provides predictions from unscheduled downtime by observing and storing critical drive performance and calibration parameters. Ideally, this should allow taking hands-on actions to keep from impending drive failure.
Apacer’s SMART features follow the specification of SATA Rev. 2.5 and ATA/ATAPI-7 specification by using the standard SMART command to read data from the flash drive. Running on the host, Apacer’s SMART utility analyzes and reports the disk status periodically to the host before the drive is in critical condition.
