S.M.A.R.T. Script: Checks Drive Health Before Running a Profile

Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology, or S.M.A.R.T., is a monitoring system for computer hard disks to detect and report on various indicators of reliability, in the hope of anticipating failures. More information.

The batch file downloadable on this page can be setup to run BEFORE a ViceVersa profile and if the S.M.A.R.T. check reports an issue with the computer hard disk's health, it will abort profile execution. This prevents files from being corrupted.

How to install:

  • Download the file smart.zip
  • Inside the smart.zip file, open and read the file install.txt which contains the installation instructions.
  • Once installed, the output of the S.M.A.R.T. check will be included in the ViceVersa profile log (if a log file for the profile has been setup)

If you need the output, just add after the line with the

smartctl.exe -i -H %smartdrive% > c:\smarttest\log.txt

which writes the result in the log.txt

ViceVersa automatically adds the script output to the profile log file (if a log file is set in the profile settings). thanks
