How do I read SMART Attributes..


Yes I am very very confused when they make statements that Smaller means that
its going to fail


Can some one explain what the 3 readings mean & the RAW one,...

Not all articles that I have found name the 3 attributes the same..

Thanks

Which is comletely wrong, of course, unlss you are talking about
raw, uninterpreted values. But nobody can read these direcly
anyway.

Which ones? Maybe post the compete output from 'smartctl -a /dev/hda'
(assuming it is the first disk) here?
