Hi there,

Has anyone made a batch file that will read the Hard Drive's S.M.A.R.T. infos and interpret them in order to predict H.D. failure?

The only thing a came up with so far, are 2 command lines that outputs a bunch of numbers:

WMIC /NAMESPACE:\\root\wmi PATH MSStorageDriver_FailurePredictThresholds
WMIC /NAMESPACE:\\root\wmi PATH MSStorageDriver_FailurePredictData

Please do not suggest a program that reads and display S.M.A.R.T. infos. I need a batch file.

Thanks for your help,
