Check SMART Status.
Click the link above to open the script in Script Editor, save, and enter the following line into your crontab:
osascript [path/to/file]
where path/to/file is, obviously, the POSIX path to the Applescript.

One mistake--make sure you place the POSIX path to the script in quotation marks: osascript '/path/to/file'. Sorry about that

Check SMART Status.scpt.
Click the link above to open the script in Script Editor, save, and enter the following line into your crontab:
osascript '/path/to/file'
where /path/to/file is, obviously, the POSIX path to the Applescript.
[Corrected the script to ask Finder to display the dialog if there is an error--osascript can't display dialogs directly. Rob, if you want, delete the previous two comments and move this up. Sorry about that.]
This version should discover your drives.

I just made a geektool entry of 'diskutil info disk0 grep Verified > /dev/null'
Then I set the default icons and turned on icon display. If disk status is 'Verified' then I get a green icon, if it's not I get red.

I edited the script as I wanted to have a DAILY HARD DRIVE VERIFIED STATUS message window displayed, not just when the 'Drive Failed'.

I also used CRONNIX to add the scheduled time for this script to run daily under my user name CRONTAB. This is a very simply program for a newbie or advanced user - nice GUI.

QUESTION: 10.3: Get hard disk SMART status from the command line

Question: Is the SMART status verified a) when the diskutil utility is run, b) only at boot-up, or c) once every xx hrs?
Does anybody know the answer?
For some reason I have it in my head that the SMART status is checked maybe only at boot-up, status is stored somewhere, and then diskutil simply retrieves the status from that 'somewhere'.
Free office for osx. Am I wrong?

heres a script you can launch on cron and it'll notify you when the result comes back bad: you need to replace [email protected] with the email address you want the alert sent to.
The grep process is unnecessary in returning the status, as awk has its own pattern matching. Also, to get better output, you should print both the third and fourth fields, to handle 'Not Supported' or other multi-word output:
This script should test all your attached drives.
10.3: Get hard disk SMART status from the command line

This command makes a horrible drive parking noise on an intel MBP running 10.5.6. Anyone else experience this or know another method, or the cause of this noise?
