       GSmartControl - Hard disk drive and SSD health inspection tool


       gsmartcontrol [OPTIONS]

       gsmartcontrol-root [--desktop=<desktop>] [OPTIONS]


       GSmartControl  is a graphical user interface for smartctl (from smartmontools), which is a
       tool  for  querying  and  controlling  SMART  (Self-Monitoring,  Analysis,  and  Reporting
       Technology)  data on modern hard disk and solid-state drives. It allows you to inspect the
       drive's SMART data to determine its health, as well as run various tests on it.

       This manual page documents briefly the gsmartcontrol and gsmartcontrol-root commands.

       gsmartcontrol-root command launches  gsmartcontrol  with  administrative  privileges.  The
       desktop  argument specifies which desktop is currently running, for automatic selection of
       native su mechanism. Valid values for desktop are auto, kde, gnome, other.

              Load smartctl data from file, creating a virtual drive. You can specify this option
              multiple times.

              Add    this    device   to   device   list.   The   format   of   the   device   is

              option multiple times. Example:
              --add-device /dev/sda --add-device /dev/twa0::3ware,2 --add-device '/dev/sdb::::-T permissive'
