HDD S.M.A.R.T. monitor utility used to check and monitor the S.M.A.R.T. status of the hard drives.
All modern hard drives use special internal health monitoring software, called S.M.A.R.T. technology (Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology). It constantly tracks the set of vital hard drive parameters (read/write errors, temperature and so on), and store information in the HDD internal memory.
To retrieve this information from the hard drive you need a S.M.A.R.T. monitor software - ActiveSMART.
