check & monitor your SSD / Flash Storage health
SSDReporter is an application that checks the health of your internal Solid State Disks ("SSD" aka "Flash Storage"). Since SSDs have a limited life-time determined by the number of write operations it is important to keep an eye on your SSD status. SSDReporter can warn you by e-mail or on-screen each time the health of your SSD decreases and/or when the health falls below the 'warning' or 'error' thresholds. The current status of your SSDs is also always easily recognizable because SSDReporter changes its icon (optionally in the menubar) from green to yellow (warning threshold) and finally red (error threshold) as the SSD health decreases.
Limitations & Compatibility:
Only 'internal' SSDs are supported, disks connected via USB & FireWire do not work at all with SSDReporter.
eSATA & ThunderBolt connected SSDs may work if the enclosure is S.M.A.R.T.-compatible.
SSDReporter works with all internal SSDs that support S.M.A.R.T. in online mode and export useful health/lifetime attributes.
SSD models that are known not to work for various reasons include:
• a few 2013 and 2014 MacBookAir models contain incompatible 'TOSHIBA' SSDs
• many 'Micron' and 'Crucial' and 'Mushkin' SSDs are incompatible
• some 'OCZ' SSDs including the ARC, ONYX, AGILITY4, VECTOR & VERTEX are incompatible (but the TRION works)
• most 'OWC' SSDs including the AURA, MERCURY & ELECTRA are incompatible

• macOS 10.10 'Yosemite' or later
• At least one compatible internal "Solid State Disk" (SSD) or "Flash Storage" device
