Fix SMART service startup on systems with lots of disks
During some disk swapping the S.M.A.R.T. service required being turned back on. When I navigate to the services screen and opt to turn the service on after a short ~5 second wait a pop-up box appears notifying me that the S.M.A.R.T. service failed to start. An alert appears on the upper right informing me of such. If I then navigate to a different screen and back again the service is unexpectedly listed as running, despite it previously saying it failed to start. Looking at the processes confirms it is running.
