smartmontools. I can perfectly see HDD of
/dev/sda but I can't do the same for
/dev/sdc which is my USB HDD (sata-usb). What do I need to do?
Commands I tried:
$ sudo hddtemp /dev/sda /dev/sda: HITACHI HTS545016B9A300: 37°C $ sudo hddtemp /dev/sdc /dev/sdc: Mass Storage Device: S.M.A.R.T. not available $ sudo smartctl -i -d sat /dev/sdc smartctl 6.2 2013-07-26 r3841 [x86_64-linux-3.19.0-28-generic] (local build) Copyright (C) 2002-13, Bruce Allen, Christian Franke, www.smartmontools.org === START OF INFORMATION SECTION === Model Family: Toshiba 2.5" HDD MK..52GSX Device Model: TOSHIBA MK3252GSX Serial Number: 19V9C2F6T LU WWN Device Id: 5 000039 18370861b Firmware Version: LV010A User Capacity: 320,072,933,376 bytes [320 GB] Sector Size: 512 bytes logical/physical Device is: In smartctl database [for details use: -P show] ATA Version is: ATA8-ACS (minor revision not indicated) SATA Version is: SATA 2.6, 3.0 Gb/s Local Time is: Wed Sep 16 20:54:07 2015 EEST SMART support is: Available - device has SMART capability.
