If any of your hard disks does not support S.M.A.R.T., you can use your own custom script to view the disk status in Acronis Drive Monitor

This article applies to:


If any of your hard drives does not support S.M.A.R.T., you can create a custom script, that will be executed automatically according to schedule options, specified on the Alerts page.

(!) Creating a custom script requires basic scripting skills and availability of a command-line tool from the storage controller vendor.

See also S.M.A.R.T. Monitoring.

Each hard disk that does not support S.M.A.R.T. needs a separate custom script. This can be particularly true for RAID arrays, since the system accesses drives in a RAID configuration indirectly as logical volumes (instead of accessing directly as physical drives).

On the Options page you may select a required script for a drive in the Disk monitoring section.

The executable's output will be returned through the exit code and recorded to the respective log entry.

Executed custom script provides a report about disk status:

  • 0 - OK: there are no errors and warnings, the disk is healthy;
  • 1 - Warning: electromechanical problems occurred, the disk needs to be checked to avoid possible failure in the future;
  • 2 - Critical: error: there is a serious problem with the disk, it needs urgent data backup and, probably, hardware replacement.
