Latest update: September 14, 2018 ID: 13729
The article concerns Kaspersky Security Cloud 19 — Family and Personal.

The S.M.A.R.T. diagnostics technology is used in Kaspersky Security Cloud to track and predict hard drive errors. A component in Kaspersky Security Cloud analyzes the condition of the hard drive by its S.M.A.R.T. parameters. The parameters are described below.

Hard drive health check in Kaspersky Security Cloud is performed automatically once a week. If necessary, you can also run it manually.

When the condition of your hard drive worsens, the application will show you a warning so that you can backup your files and avoid data loss. If you receive this message during the warranty period of your computer or hard drive, contact the seller to have your hard drive replaced. If the warranty has already elapsed, contact a computer or hard drive repair center once you have backed up your files.
