false SMART alarms (script timing out or failing?)
I have just installed Acronis Drive Monitor and I am monitoring my hard drive via SMART.
I have noticed that whenever the hard drive is very busy I get lots of alarms, and the hard drive health falls to 59%. After a few minutes it recovers to 94%.
Looking at the alarms, I can see that there are false alarms. Most probably the SMART script has failed or timed out, and Drive monitor is misinterpreting the results.
See the attached file for details.
