How do I check up hard disk health in Windows 10 using WMIC?

Post by shravan »

To check your Hard Disk Health natively in Windows 10/8/7, open a command prompt window. First, type wmic and hit Enter. Then type diskdrive get status and hit Enter.If the status of your hard disk is fine, you will see a message, OK. If Windows faces problems in retrieving the SMART information, it will probably mean that the hard disk may face issues and this will be reflected in the message that is returned.In the eventuality that your hard disk status is not OK, it might be a good idea to keep a watch on the noises that a dying hard disk makes, and back up all your data natively or by using some free third-party backup software.
