What is a SMART application

SMART - Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology. click here

Used by Hard Drives to monitor for signs of failure and damage. SMART programs are used to monitor the SMART status.

Although there maybe another meaning for SMART Programs.

Where did you hear of it??

It's a rather overused word but you may be referring to SMART (Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology) to monitor the health status of HDDs.

I first came across the term some years ago as a suite of DOS (now Windows) programs handling spreadsheet, database, word processing, etc. It was a worthy rival to Lotus 123 amongst others.

it will keep an eye on your hard drive for you and warn of any potential problems.

You will have to have SMART Enabled in your Bios settings.

I used to use an application development program called SMART. One of my friends wrote a till and stock control application with it, and an insurance application with it. Also called SMARTWare. It started as a DOS appliaction and progressed to a Windows version

It's still going click here

This could give rise to SMART applications.
