  • Linux Lite: 5.0 64bit

  • Kernel: 5.x
Can anyone please tell me how I can check the SMART (self test) data on a hard drive with Linux Lite? Lubuntu has a disk utility (possibly called Palimpsest) which does this, as well as being a quick method of checking partitions. It (or something similar) does not seem to be in the standard LL repositories and I can't find any reference in Help. I am probably missing something!
Desktop: Running LL5 on second HD in ACEPC model MK1: "Mini PC 4GB RAM 64GB ROM Windows 10 Celeron J3455 Processor Mini Computer Dual HDMI, Support mSATA / 2.5 inches SSD/HDD 4K, Dual Band WiFi, Gigabit Ethernet, USB 3.0". Don't normally use the supplied W10. Also use LL on netbook (Using xrandr to "expand" the screen) and various old laptops. NAS drive and web server hosted by Raspberry Pi's.

Thanks Valtam. I had searched for SMART and should have looked for S.M.A.R.T.
The utility showed up in the Accessories menu as "Disks". It would seem more logical in System along with "Partition Drives" (gparted), but I realise it comes as it comes. I have used
Code: [Select]
sudo nano /usr/share/applications/gnome-disks.desktopand replaced the Categories line with simply
Code: [Select]
Categories=System;which I reckon puts it in the right menu. I then used Settings/Main Menu/ to move it up above Partition Drives.
