Official Mirror:
A graphical notifier for smartmontools which attempts to show messages from the smartd disk monitoring daemon to the user. Currently only for gtk. WARNING: This package is not a replacement for regular backups. It will _try_ to warn the user when smartd sends a disk health warning. But success is not guaranteed. At best this package is an extra layer of protection.
