Re: Installing New Raid driver 9.3.0.00167 breaks S.M.A.R.T. polling.

Any chance this can be fixed as its still broken in the latest driver ? cant even disable and re enable it will still be disabled, i sometimes just wanna see remaining life left or current drive temps, i have no way of doing that right now and its annoying

What do you prefer to disable?

As I wrote, Hard Disk Sentinel 5.70 can detect and read the temperatures and health/lifetime information (all S.M.A.R.T. data) about SATA hard disks / SSDs with no problems.

I'm using driver 9.3.0.206 and works like a charm for SATA drives in RAID and standalone config ....

hardware sentinel is annoying app that changes things without permision i wont install that, and i do not trust it, i usually use crystaldiskinfo or hwinfo64 im currently back on older raid drivers for now.

It does not change anything, except the disk icons to reflect the disk health in Explorer but it can be easily disabled on Configuration -> Disk Control page. It does not change/modify any settings - especially if you use the portable version.

As HDS has far better support of RAIDs / disks / controllers than anything else (you can see this as example) I see no reason of using other tools, but maybe one day they can be as powerful too - if Sentinal shows that it's possible

You wrote that you want to see the stats - at least there is something which can do it.

Good to know it allows that but AMD should still fix there drivers and not push me towards something that cost money potentially to solve their issue.

I'm sure HDS is independent from AMD....

You can download the portable version, launch when required to check the health/temperature/lifetime status and then close it (this is what I do too).

No need to order/pay anything: even in free/trial mode it displays all SMART details.

Anyway, I completely agree that there should be even newer, better drivers from AMD which can allow us to check/monitor NVMe SSDs too
