    How to Check Drive Health and SMART Status in Windows 10


    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), solid-state drives (SSDs), and eMMC drives. Its primary function is to detect and report various indicators of drive reliability with the intent of anticipating imminent 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 preventive action can be taken to prevent data loss, and the failing drive can be replaced and data integrity maintained.

    Hard disk and other storage drives are subject to failures which can be classified within two basic classes:

    • Predictable failures which result from slow processes such as mechanical wear and gradual degradation of storage surfaces. Monitoring can determine when such failures are becoming more likely.
    • Unpredictable failures which occur without warning due to anything from electronic components becoming defective to a sudden mechanical failure, including failures related to improper handling.

    Starting with Windows 10 build 20226, Microsoft has added new storage health monitoring for NVMe SSDs. Attempting to recover data after drive failure is both frustrating and expensive. This feature in Option Five is designed to detect hardware abnormalities for NVMe SSDs and notify users with enough time to act. It is strongly recommended that users immediately back up their data after receiving a notification.

    This tutorial will show you how to check the health and SMART status of all connected local drives to see if they are failing in Windows 10.

    Known ATA S.M.A.R.T. attributes (ID codes):

    Drives do not support all attribute codes (ID). Some codes are specific to particular drive types (magnetic platter, flash, SSD). Drives may use different codes for the same parameter.


    If a drive is reported to have a critical status, it is recommended to back up and replace the drive immediately.


    ID Attribute name Description
    0 No issues found.
    01
    0x01
    Read Error Rate (Vendor specific raw value.) Stores data related to the rate of hardware read errors that occurred when reading data from a disk surface. The raw value has different structure for different vendors and is often not meaningful as a decimal number.
    02
    0x02
    Throughput Performance Overall (general) throughput performance of a hard disk drive. If the value of this attribute is decreasing there is a high probability that there is a problem with the disk.
    03
    0x03
    Spin-Up Time Average time of spindle spin up (from zero RPM to fully operational [milliseconds]).
    04
    0x04
    Start/Stop Count A tally of spindle start/stop cycles. The spindle turns on, and hence the count is increased, both when the hard disk is turned on after having before been turned entirely off (disconnected from power source) and when the hard disk returns from having previously been put to sleep mode.
    05
    0x05
    Reallocated Sectors Count Count of reallocated sectors. The raw value represents a count of the bad sectors that have been found and remapped. Thus, the higher the attribute value, the more sectors the drive has had to reallocate. This value is primarily used as a metric of the life expectancy of the drive; a drive which has had any reallocations at all is significantly more likely to fail in the immediate months.
    06
    0x06
    Read Channel Margin Margin of a channel while reading data. The function of this attribute is not specified.
    07
    0x07
    Seek Error Rate (Vendor specific raw value.) Rate of seek errors of the magnetic heads. If there is a partial failure in the mechanical positioning system, then seek errors will arise. Such a failure may be due to numerous factors, such as damage to a servo, or thermal widening of the hard disk. The raw value has different structure for different vendors and is often not meaningful as a decimal number.
    08
    0x08
    Seek Time Performance Average performance of seek operations of the magnetic heads. If this attribute is decreasing, it is a sign of problems in the mechanical subsystem.
    09
    0x09
    Power-On Hours 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. "By default, the total expected lifetime of a hard disk in perfect condition is defined as 5 years (running every day and night on all days). This is equal to 1825 days in 24/7 mode or 43800 hours."
    On some pre-2005 drives, this raw value may advance erratically and/or "wrap around" (reset to zero periodically).
    10
    0x0A
    Spin Retry Count Count of retry of spin start attempts. 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
    0x0B
    Recalibration Retries or Calibration Retry Count This attribute indicates the count that recalibration was requested (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.
    12
    0x0C
    Power Cycle Count This attribute indicates the count of full hard disk power on/off cycles.
    13
    0x0D
    Soft Read Error Rate Uncorrected read errors reported to the operating system.
    22
    0x16
    Current Helium Level Specific to He8 drives from HGST. This value measures the helium inside of the drive specific to this manufacturer. It is a pre-fail attribute that trips once the drive detects that the internal environment is out of specification.
    170
    0xAA
    Available Reserved Space See attribute E8.
    171
    0xAB
    SSD Program Fail Count (Kingston) The total number of flash program operation failures since the drive was deployed. Identical to attribute 181.
    172
    0xAC
    SSD Erase Fail Count (Kingston) Counts the number of flash erase failures. This attribute returns the total number of Flash erase operation failures since the drive was deployed. This attribute is identical to attribute 182.
    173
    0xAD
    SSD Wear Leveling Count Counts the maximum worst erase count on any block.
    174
    0xAE
    Unexpected Power Loss Count Also known as "Power-off Retract Count" per conventional HDD terminology. Raw value reports the number of unclean shutdowns, cumulative over the life of an SSD, where an "unclean shutdown" is the removal of power without STANDBY IMMEDIATE as the last command (regardless of PLI activity using capacitor power). Normalized value is always 100.
    175
    0xAF
    Power Loss Protection Failure Last test result as microseconds to discharge cap, saturated at its maximum value. Also logs minutes since last test and lifetime number of tests. Raw value contains the following data:
    • Bytes 0-1: Last test result as microseconds to discharge cap, saturates at max value. Test result expected in range 25 <= result <= 5000000, lower indicates specific error code.
    • Bytes 2-3: Minutes since last test, saturates at max value.
    • Bytes 4-5: Lifetime number of tests, not incremented on power cycle, saturates at max value.

    Normalized value is set to one on test failure or 11 if the capacitor has been tested in an excessive temperature condition, otherwise 100.
    176
    0xB0
    Erase Fail Count S.M.A.R.T. parameter indicates a number of flash erase command failures.
    177
    0xB1
    Wear Range Delta Delta between most-worn and least-worn Flash blocks. It describes how good/bad the wearleveling of the SSD works on a more technical way.
    179
    0xB3
    Used Reserved Block Count Total "Pre-Fail" attribute used at least in Samsung devices.
    180
    0xB4
    Unused Reserved Block Count Total "Pre-Fail" attribute used at least in HP devices.
    181
    0xB5
    Program Fail Count Total or Non-4K Aligned Access Count Total number of Flash program operation failures since the drive was deployed.
    Number of user data accesses (both reads and writes) where LBAs are not 4 KiB aligned (LBA % 8 != 0) or where size is not modulus 4 KiB (block count != 8), assuming logical block size (LBS) = 512 B.
    182
    0xB6
    Erase Fail Count "Pre-Fail" Attribute used at least in Samsung devices.
    183
    0xB7
    SATA Downshift Error Count or Runtime Bad Block Western Digital, Samsung or Seagate attribute: Either the number of downshifts of link speed (e.g. from 6Gbit/s to 3Gbit/s) or the total number of data blocks with detected, uncorrectable errors encountered during normal operation. Although degradation of this parameter can be an indicator of drive aging and/or potential electromechanical problems, it does not directly indicate imminent drive failure.
    184
    0xB8
    End-to-End error / IOEDC This attribute is a part of Hewlett-Packard's SMART IV technology, as well as part of other vendors' IO Error Detection and Correction schemas, and it contains a count of parity errors which occur in the data path to the media via the drive's cache RAM.
    185
    0xB9
    Head Stability Western Digital attribute.
    186
    0xBA
    Induced Op-Vibration Detection Western Digital attribute.
    187
    0xBB
    Reported Uncorrectable Errors The count of errors that could not be recovered using hardware ECC (see attribute 195).
    188
    0xBC
    Command Timeout The count of aborted operations due to HDD timeout. Normally this attribute value should be equal to zero.
    189
    0xBD
    High Fly Writes HDD manufacturers implement a flying height sensor that attempts to provide additional protections for write operations by detecting when a recording head is flying outside its normal operating range. If an unsafe fly height condition is encountered, the write process is stopped, and the information is rewritten or reallocated to a safe region of the hard drive. This attribute indicates the count of these errors detected over the lifetime of the drive.This feature is implemented in most modern Seagate drives and some of Western Digital's drives, beginning with the WD Enterprise WDE18300 and WDE9180 Ultra2 SCSI hard drives, and will be included on all future WD Enterprise products.
    190
    0xBE
    Temperature Difference or Airflow Temperature Value is equal to (100-temp. C), allowing manufacturer to set a minimum threshold which corresponds to a maximum temperature. This also follows the convention of 100 being a best-case value and lower values being undesirable. However, some older drives may instead report raw Temperature (identical to 0xC2) or Temperature minus 50 here.
    191
    0xBF
    G-sense Error Rate The count of errors resulting from externally induced shock and vibration.
    192
    0xC0
    Power-off Retract Count, Emergency Retract Cycle Count (Fujitsu), or Unsafe Shutdown Count Number of power-off or emergency retract cycles.
    193
    0xC1
    Load Cycle Count or Load/Unload Cycle Count (Fujitsu) Count of load/unload cycles into head landing zone position. Some drives use 225 (0xE1) for Load Cycle Count instead.Western Digital rates their VelociRaptor drives for 600,000 load/unload cycles, and WD Green drives for 300,000 cycles; the latter ones are designed to unload heads often to conserve power. On the other hand, the WD3000GLFS (a desktop drive) is specified for only 50,000 load/unload cycles.
    Some laptop drives and "green power" desktop drives are programmed to unload the heads whenever there has not been any activity for a short period, to save power. Operating systems often access the file system a few times a minute in the background, causing 100 or more load cycles per hour if the heads unload: the load cycle rating may be exceeded in less than a year. There are programs for most operating systems that disable the Advanced Power Management (APM) and Automatic acoustic management (AAM) features causing frequent load cycles.
    194
    0xC2
    Temperature or Temperature Celsius Indicates the device temperature, if the appropriate sensor is fitted. Lowest byte of the raw value contains the exact temperature value (Celsius degrees).[56]
    195
    0xC3
    Hardware ECC Recovered (Vendor-specific raw value.) The raw value has different structure for different vendors and is often not meaningful as a decimal number.
    196
    0xC4
    Reallocation Event Count Count of remap operations. The raw value of this attribute shows the total count of attempts to transfer data from reallocated sectors to a spare area. Both successful and unsuccessful attempts are counted.
    197
    0xC5
    Current Pending Sector Count Count of "unstable" sectors (waiting to be remapped, because of unrecoverable read errors). If an unstable sector is subsequently read successfully, the sector is remapped and this value is decreased. Read errors on a sector will not remap the sector immediately (since the correct value cannot be read and so the value to remap is not known, and also it might become readable later); instead, the drive firmware remembers that the sector needs to be remapped, and will remap it the next time it's written. However, some drives will not immediately remap such sectors when written; instead the drive will first attempt to write to the problem sector and if the write operation is successful then the sector will be marked good (in this case, the "Reallocation Event Count" (0xC4) will not be increased). This is a serious shortcoming, for if such a drive contains marginal sectors that consistently fail only after some time has passed following a successful write operation, then the drive will never remap these problem sectors.
    198
    0xC6
    (Offline) Uncorrectable Sector Count The total count 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
    0xC7
    UltraDMA CRC Error Count The count of errors in data transfer via the interface cable as determined by ICRC (Interface Cyclic Redundancy Check).
    200
    0xC8
    Multi-Zone Error Rate The count of errors found when writing a sector. The higher the value, the worse the disk's mechanical condition is.
    200
    0xC8
    Write Error Rate (Fujitsu) The total count of errors when writing a sector.
    201
    0xC9
    Soft Read Error Rate or
    TA Counter Detected

    202
    0xCA
    Data Address Mark errors or

    0xCB
    Run Out Cancel The number of errors caused by incorrect checksum during the error correction.
    204
    0xCC

    208
    0xD0

    0xE0
    Load Friction Resistance caused by friction in mechanical parts while operating.
    225
    0xE1
    Load/Unload Cycle Count Total count of load cycles Some drives use 193 (0xC1) for Load Cycle Count instead. See Description for 193 for significance of this number.
    226

    Load 'In'-time Total time of loading on the magnetic heads actuator (time not spent in parking area).
    227

    228
    0xE4
    Power-Off Retract Cycle The number of power-off cycles which are counted whenever there is a "retract event" and the heads are loaded off of the media such as when the machine is powered down, put to sleep, or is idle.
    230
    0xE6
    GMR Head Amplitude (magnetic HDDs), Drive Life Protection Status (SSDs) Amplitude of "thrashing" (repetitive head moving motions between operations). In solid-state drives, indicates whether usage trajectory is outpacing the expected life curve
    231
    0xE7
    Life Left (SSDs) or Temperature Indicates the approximate SSD life left, in terms of program/erase cycles or available reserved blocks. A normalized value of 100 represents a new drive, with a threshold value at 10 indicating a need for replacement. A value of 0 may mean that the drive is operating in read-only mode to allow data recovery. Previously (pre-2010) occasionally used for Drive Temperature (more typically reported at 0xC2).
    232
    0xE8
    Endurance Remaining or Available Reserved Space Number of physical erase cycles completed on the SSD as a percentage of the maximum physical erase cycles the drive is designed to endure.Intel SSDs report the available reserved space as a percentage of the initial reserved space.
    233
    0xE9
    Media Wearout Indicator (SSDs) or Power-On Hours Intel SSDs report a normalized value from 100, a new drive, to a minimum of 1. It decreases while the NAND erase cycles increase from 0 to the maximum-rated cycles.Previously (pre-2010) occasionally used for Power-On Hours (more typically reported in 0x09).
    234
    0xEA
    Average erase count AND Maximum Erase Count Decoded as: byte 0-1-2 = average erase count (big endian) and byte 3-4-5 = max erase count (big endian).

    0xF1
    Total LBAs Written Total count of LBAs written.
    242
    0xF2
    Total LBAs Read Total count of LBAs read.
    Some S.M.A.R.T. utilities will report a negative number for the raw value since in reality it has 48 bits rather than 32.
    243
    0xF3
    Total LBAs Written Expanded The upper 5 bytes of the 12-byte total number of LBAs written to the device. The lower 7 byte value is located at attribute 0xF1.
    244

    I just checked on a PC that does have a NVME drive. Can you confirm if you see this or not please? Thanks
    Hello Steve,

    Unfortunately, it's only available for build 20226 and higher.

    Hi Shawn:

    I just tried Option 3 in elevated Powershell 7. I got this message:
    How to Check Drive Health and SMART Status in Windows 10-image.png
    Then I tried it in an older version (version 1) of Powershell (elevated) & it works:

    Not sure why it doesn't work in Powershell 7, but it didn't. Just thought I'd let you know.

    (But you can paste the command from option 2 in Powershell 7, and it works)

    Hello mate,

    Odd. I just tested a copy and paste of option 3 into an elevated PowerShell 7, and it still worked for me. Not sure why it didn't for you.

    Strange. The only difference that I see in our Powershell versions is that mine is 64-bit.

    However,
    Code:
    Get-CimInstance -namespace root\wmi -class MSStorageDriver_FailurePredictStatus
    works:

    What I posted is also from the 64-bit version.

    I just did a repair on Powershell 7.1.3 from Github, but no change. I wonder if I should try the .zip file instead of the .msi file. The code from Option 2
    Code:
    wmic /namespace:\\root\wmi path MSStorageDriver_FailurePredictStatus
    does work in Powershell.
