    Thumbs up Recovering from S.M.A.R.T. drive failure

    With an ASUS motherboard allowing hot swapping, I was able to successfully bypass a boot failure when an internal WD 1T (Blue, 1.5 years old) drive failed to test with a SMART failure. The Magic Micro computer (Win 10 Pro, 1607) refused to boot when the SMART failure occurred. I removed the drive from the unit, allowed the computer to successfully boot and then reattached the power connector, then the data connector and the drive popped back into service. I was able to successfully move all my data to my new 2T drive (now a WD Black) with few problems. Occasionally a recently added file would not read...hence the SMART failure. Thought you might want to know.
