I am using micro SD cards through the (most excellent) SDFat library. I would like to be able to determine if a uSD is approaching the end of its life. Supposedly this can be done through reading its S.M.A.R.T. register. Can this be done through the SDFat library? I poked around and I didn’t see this ability (or something else that could indicate wear).
Some of the uSD manufacturers I spoke to require an NDA to release their secret sauce (code) to be able to do this - needless to see that I don’t want to be locked in and still have hopes that there is a more generic/general way of obtaining a uSD’s status.
This is not a problem specific to the particle platform obviously but I am hoping anyone here has experience with these things.
