Hi !

S.M.A.R.T. analysis is now part of the Mac OS X "client" version too.

However, it requires your hard drive to support it and, therefore, to be relatively new. Would you hard drive be too old or not support S.M.A.R.T., no information will appear at the bottom of the Disk Utility window.

    I have a new iMac two weeks old with HFS+ Journalling
    and 10.3 but SMART does not show on Disk Utility -
    is it only there if I boot with CD in - I usually just Sleep so it's a pity if any Disk Utility features are only available when rebooting
