Add button to show 'SMART Extended Comprehensive Error Log'


Recommended Posts



Could you please on the 'Self-Test' page for hard disk, add a button 'SMART xerror log' to show xerror log as well?


The command seems to be 'smarctl -l xerror <device>'.



The regular 'error' log is often empty, and may give a false sense that the harddrive is still good, while information displayed in the xerror log indicates that the harddrive is starting to fail.

E.g. xerror log can show 'Error: UNC at LBA' entries, while the error log shows nothing.
