Hi all. Yesterday I started hearing some clicks from one of my hard drives, so I installed DiskCheckup to get some SMART info and I get a message that says "No SMART compatible drives detected"! Well as you can see from my system specs, all my drives are indeed SMART compatible.
I also installed HDTune and HDD Health and both of those programs are not displaying SMART info as well. I ran all of the disk software as administrator to no avail. SMART Monitoring is also enabled in the BIOS. My motherboard drivers
are up to date also.
I would like to find out which drive is on the way out without having to disconnect all the drives (save the system drive) and reconnecting one at a time just to listen and hope I hear the clicking sounds. The sounds don't happen constantly, just periodically and at random. However it has increased slightly in frequency and of course will only get worse, but you all know this already I'm sure.
This is also from a generated system health report:
SMART Disk Status Top: of 1
Query Query Result
root\wmi:SELECT * FROM MSStorageDriver_FailurePredictStatus WHERE PredictFailure = true
Can somebody tell me what this message actually means?
So finally, why is the SMART information not being collected or detected at all?
