What is S.M.A.R.T.?

S.M.A.R.T. stands for Self‐Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology. It is a disk drive feature that allows software to monitor degradations in disk drive specifications. Using this technology, NVIDIA MediaShield lets you monitor the health of disk drives in a RAID array and alerts you when certain degradations indicate an impending hardware failure, giving you time to back up data and replace the drive.
