    The only tool I have found for monitoring hard drive health is SMARTreporter[1]. Unfortunately, S.M.A.R.T. status isn’t supported by USB 2 and Apple haven’t implemented support for it for FireWire drives. So this app is useless.

    How can I monitor hard drive integrity? I want a daemon that monitors my external drives and can notify me when sectors become unreadable/my files start getting corrupted.

    Please advise.

    I'm also looking for a software that can do this.
