Support Hard Drive S.M.A.R.T Attributes

Below is the table of Hard Drive S.M.A.R.T attributes that supported by Hard Drive Monitor.

Please note, not all hard drives support S.M.A.R.T features. The S.M.A.R.T. can be controlled in the BIOS of most computers. It may or may not be enabled on your computer, for most current hard drives, this entry should be set to "Enabled".

ID Hex Attribute name Better Description
01 01 Read Error Rate Lower Indicates the rate of hardwareread errors that occurred when reading data from a disk surface. Any number indicates a problem with either disk surface or read/write heads.
02 02 Throughput Performance Higher Overall (general) throughputperformance of a hard disk drive. If the value ofthis attribute is decreasing there is a high probability that there is aproblem with the disk.
03 03 Spin-Up Time Lower Average time of spindle spin up (from zero RPM to fully operational).
04 04 Start/Stop Count   A tally of spindle start/stopcycles.
05 05 Reallocated Sectors Count Lower Count of reallocated sectors. When the hard drive finds a read/write/verificationerror, it marks this sector as "reallocated" and transfers data to a special reserved area (spare area). This process is also known as remappingand "reallocated" sectors are called remaps. This is why, on modern hard disks, "bad blocks" cannot be found while testing thesurface — all bad blocks are hidden in reallocated sectors. However, the more sectors that are reallocated,the more read/write speed will decrease.
06 06 Read Channel Margin   Margin of a channel while reading data. The function of this attribute is not specified.
07 07 Seek Error Rate Lower Rate of seek errors of the magnetic heads. If there is a failure in the mechanical positioning system, a servo damage or a thermal widening of the hard disk, seek errors arise. More seek errors indicates a worsening condition of a disk surface and the mechanical subsystem.
08 08 Seek Time Performance Higher Average performance of seek operations of the magnetic heads. If thisattribute is decreasing, it is a sign of problems in themechanical subsystem.
09 09 Power-On Hours (POH) Lower Count of hours in power-on state. The raw value of this attribute shows total count of hours (or minutes, or seconds, depending on manufacturer) in power-on state.
10 0A Spin Retry Count Lower Count of retry of spin startattempts. This attribute stores a total count of the spin start attempts to reach the fully operational speed under the condition that the first attempt was unsuccessful). An increase of this attribute value is a sign of problems in the hard disk mechanical subsystem.
11 0B Recalibration Retries Higher This attribute indicates the number of times recalibration was requested (under the condition that the first attempt wasunsuccessful). A decrease of this attribute value is a sign of problems in the hard disk mechanical subsystem.


Device Power Cycle Count

  This attribute indicates the count of full hard disk power on/off cycles.
13 0D Soft Read Error Rate Lower Uncorrected read errors reported to the operating system. If the value is non-zero, you should back up your data.
190 BE Airflow Temperature (WDC) Lower Airflow temperature on WesternDigital HDs (Same as temp. (C2), but current value is 50 less.)
190 BE Temperature Difference from100 Higher Value is equal to (100 -temp°C), allowing manufacturer to set a minimum threshold which corresponds to a maximumtemperature.
Seagate ST910021AS: Verified Present
Seagate ST3802110A: Verified Present 2007-02-13
Seagate ST980825AS: Verified Present 2007-04-05
Seagate ST3320620AS: VerifiedPresent 2007-04-23
Seagate ST3500641AS: VerifiedPresent 2007-06-12
Seagate ST3250824AS: VerifiedPresent 2007-08-07

191 BF G-sense error rate Lower Frequency of mistakes as a result of impact loads
192 C0 Power-off Retract Count  

Number of times the heads are loaded off the media. Heads can be unloaded without actually powering off. (or Emergency Retract Cyclecount -Fujitsu)
193 C1 Load/Unload Cycle   Count of load/unload cycles into head landing zone position.
194 C2 Temperature Lower Current internal temperature.
195 C3 Hardware ECC Recovered Higher Time between ECC-corrected errors.
196 C4 Reallocation Event Count Lower Count of remap operations. The raw value of this attribute shows the total number of attempts to transfer data from reallocatedsectors to a spare area. Both successful & unsuccessful attempts are counted.
197 C5 Current Pending Sector Count Lower Number of "unstable" sectors (waiting to be remapped). If the unstable sector is subsequently written or read successfully, this value is decreased and the sector is not remapped. Read errors on the sector will not remap the sector, it will only be remapped on a failed write attempt. This can be problematic to test because cached writes will not remap the sector, only direct I/O writes to the disk.
198 C6 Uncorrectable Sector Count Lower The total number of uncorrectable errors when reading/writing a sector. A rise in the value of this attribute indicates defects of the disk surface and/or problems in the mechanical subsystem.
199 C7 UltraDMA CRC Error Count Lower The number of errors in data transfer via the interface cable as determined by ICRC (Interface Cyclic Redundancy Check).
200 C8 Write Error Rate / Multi-Zone Error Rate Lower The total number of errors when writing a sector.
201 C9 Soft Read Error Rate Lower Number of off-track errors. If non-zero, make a backup.
252 CA Data Address Mark errors Lower Number of Data Address Mark errors (or vendorspecific).
203 CB Run Out Cancel Lower Number of ECC errors
204 CC Soft ECC Correction Lower Number of errors corrected by software ECC
205 CD Thermal Asperity Rate (TAR) Lower Number of thermal asperity errors.
206 CE Flying Height

207 CF Spin High Current   Amount of high current used to spin up the drive.

230 E6 GMR Head Amplitude   Amplitude of "thrashing" (distance of repetitive
forward/reverse head motion)
231 E7 Temperature Lower Drive Temperature
240 F0 Head Flying Hours Lower Time while head is positioning
