SMART is a matter of self-detection and advanced self-testing of a drive, that it does automatically.

A SMART Warning would be bad news indeed. As it is, a SMART 'event' is not necessarily anything major - but it does depend upon what the warning is, exactly, and any error code that goes with it. So please tell me in Reply what the SMART Warning is about, exactly (including any error code #s included in it) and I will advise you further.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
