Why not choose smart error fix automatically with free software when your Sony, HP or Dell computer detects S.M.A.R.T failure error and needs reset or repair? Here, we collect all software that can be applied to both Windows and Mac.

What is a smart error

According to the term explaination on wikepedia, S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology; often written as SMART) is a monitoring system included in computer hard disk drives (HDDs) and solid-state drives (SSDs) that detects and reports on various indicators of drive reliability, with the intent of enabling the anticipation of hardware failures.

When S.M.A.R.T. data indicates a possible imminent drive failure, software running on the host system may notify the user so stored data can be copied to another storage device, preventing data loss, and the failing drive can be replaced.

If the smart error appears during the startup of the system, the error message usually shows as failure predicted on the hard disk, and the complementary message is warning an immediate backup of this failing hard drive.
