Disk Failure Prediction Project Oct/16 – Present
• Study the reason and symptom of disk error based on SMART, performance, and disk failure data. The goal is to categorize disk failures based on their distinctive manifestations and properties, figure out the root causes of disk failures, then characterizing the degradation of disk errors to failures and try to predict disk failure. This can be used to notify users when it indicates a possible drive failure so that user can take action in advance to preventing data loss
