The problem is that when S.M.A.R.T. reports a problem it's already to late.

Harddrives nowadays come with a set of reserve sectors, and whenever the hardrive fails to write a sector it will mark it as broken and use a reserve sector instead. When the harddrive is out of reserve sectors S.M.A.R.T. starts screaming. Until then the harddrive is completely quiet and reports everything as being fine.

S.M.A.R.T. is supposed to be predictive. I don't believe it.

Here's[^] some really interesting info from Google Research.
People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day.
