Hard­ware health

Mac Format - - FEATURE -

The SMART sta­tus of your stor­age is just one in­di­ca­tor that part of your Mac’s hard­ware is on its way out. You can test for prob­lems with parts such as cool­ing fans by start­ing up in Ap­ple Di­ag­nos­tics or Ap­ple Hard­ware Test (ap­ple.co/2c5Tl4n). How­ever, TechTool Pro (about £75, mi­cro­mat. com) can test hard­ware from within OS X. It’s even able to alert you to cer­tain con­di­tions, such as low free space, in­put/out­put check fail­ures, bat­tery check fail­ures and RAID sta­tus – it can even send an email to draw at­ten­tion to a prob­lem.
