Using Drive Scope to Test Mac Drives

By | June 8, 2019

Using Drive Scope is an advanced SMART drive-testing and health-warning application. Building on the improvements to the SMART check in TechTool Pro, Drive Scope not only provides early warning when a drive is on the path to failure, but provides a deep dive into the health of the drive. See what errors have occurred, and when, along with whether the errors are temporary or an indicator of overall failure. You can even trigger the drive’s internal testing to run manually, providing instant access to up-to-date drive health information.

If your Mac is running slowly, crashing, or just generally misbehaving, and you’re not entirely sure what the problem is, one place to look is your hard drive. Because they are in use constantly, both solid state drives and traditional rotational drives are the most failure prone component in your Mac. Using Drive Scope you can see at a glance if your SMART enabled hard drive or solid state drive is developing problems, or even failing.

“We’ve added a wide variety of information for any connected SMART enabled drive, the ability to trigger internal SMART tests in the drive, and overall just provide more information about the internals of your Mac’s hard drive,” he says. “And it’s all pulled straight from the drive using tools built in to the macOS, compared to other utilities that use a third-party, open-source solution.”

Control over Testing:

Typically, a drive will check it’s SMART attributes whenever it is convenient. With Drive Scope, you can manually trigger the drive’s internal tests to make sure the SMART data is as up-to-date as possible. Check how long since the last time the drive ran a test with the drive’s testing log.

When you first open Drive Scope, an information page is displayed, summarizing all the critical information about your drive. See Drive Scope’s advanced health assesment at a glance, along with the number of errors encountered, as well as model and capacity information specific to your drive.
