How to Check SMART Failure Predict Drive Status in Windows 10

 


S.M.A.R.T (Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology) is a monitoring system included in computer hard disk drives (HDDs), solid-state drives (SSDs), and eMMC drives.

Its main function is to detect and report various hard disk reliability indicators to anticipate impending hardware failure. This article will show you how to check the SMART Failure Predict Status of a drive via Command Prompt, PowerShell, and Performance Monitor.

Checking SMART Failure Predict Drive Status in Windows 10

To do so, you must be logged in as an administrator to use this option. If the hard drive (HDD) is currently off after being idle, it will not appear in this report. Only drives that are now up and running will appear in this report.

1. Checking SMART Failure Predict Drive Status Via Command Prompt.

  • Press Win + R key, then type cmd and press Ctrl + Shift + Enter to open Command Prompt with admin rights.
  • In the command prompt window, enter the command below and press Enter.

wmic /namespace:\\root\wmi path MSStorageDriver_FailurePredictStatus

  • If the PredictFailure drive displays as FALSE, then no problems were found with the drive.
  • If Drive's PredictFailure displays as TRUE, see the ID codes attribute for Reason codes in the link I included below to find out what they mean.

2. Checking SMART Failure Predict Drive Status Via PowerShell

  • Press Win + X keys and select Windows PowerShell (Admin) from the list.
  • In the PowerShell window, enter the command below and press Enter.

Get-WmiObject -namespace root\wmi -class MSStorageDriver_FailurePredictStatus

  • If the PredictFailure drive displays as FALSE, then no problems were found with the drive.
  • If Drive's PredictFailure displays as TRUE, see the ID codes attribute for Reason codes in the link I included below to find out what they mean.

3. Checking SMART Failure Predict Drive Status Via Performance Monitor

  • Press Win + R keys, then type perfmon and press Enter to open Performance Monitor.
  • In the Performance Monitor window, expand Data Collector Sets and expand System in the left pane.
  • Then right-click on System Diagnostics and click Start.

  • This report will now start collecting data for 60 seconds. It may take up to an additional 60 seconds to generate the report.
  • When the System Diagnostics report is complete, expand Reports - System - System Diagnostics in the left pane of Performance Monitor.
  • Under System Diagnostics, click on the report generated (collected) at the current date and time and expand System Checks in the Basic System Checks section under Warnings.
  • If the SMART Predict Failure Check shows FALSE with a value of 0 and Description displays as Passed, then no problems were found with the drive.
  • If the SMART Predict Failure Check shows FALSE with a value other than 0, see the ID codes attribute for Reason codes in the link below to find out what they mean.

ATA S.M.A.R.T. attributes (ID codes)

Drive does not support all ID codes attributes. Some codes are specific to certain types of drives (magnetic platter, flash, SSD). Drives may use different codes for the same parameters.

Suppose a drive is reported to have a critical status. In that case, it is advisable to make a backup and replace the drive immediately.
