A while back I was researching an article for About This Particular Mac once and started to wonder why one drive utility was showing a drive's S.M.A.R.T status as failing (ok on some runs not on others) while Disk Utility reported the status as verified.

A few days later Disk Utility also reported the status as failing. I started to wonder why one utility caught the problem earlier than the other. It seems that not all S.M.A.R.T attributes are tested by all utilities. The failure threshold may not be the same for all utilities as well.
