Viewing SMART Statistics

You can use the Storage Dashboard to view various indicators of reliability for the SATA hard drives and SSDs in your storage space. maxView Storage Manager displays SMART statistics for the drives using Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology available on most contemporary hard drives and non-spinning storage devices. You can use this information to verify the health of your hard drives and SSDs and to predict drive failures.

To view the SMART statistics for a hard drive or SSD, select the drive in the Enterprise View, then click the SMART tab on the Storage Dashboard. For SSDs, the statistics include wear-level and longevity indicators, as shown in next figure. Refer to your drive vendor's data sheet for a description of individual report items.
