Response to: SMART drive monitoring

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

    Hi !

    That's interesting indeed ! I performed some tests and was always able to see the computer's S.M.A.R.T. status by using the Disk Utility , even without booting from the CD.

    However, in order to see the status, you will have to click on the name of your hard drive ( 37.3 GB TOSHIBA, for example ) and not the name of the boot partition ( Dex's 7 Gig )...
