Editors' review

Delve into the inner workings of your hard drive and monitor it for potential failures, but some users experienced irritating failures from this utility. DHealth Personal's basic interface logically arranges hard drive information, monitoring tools, and other data in an easy-to-read tabbed dialog. The demo is set to monitor only two drives. You can't pick which two, and some users found checking the second drive caused program errors.

When it works, DHealth Personal opens with basic information about your drive: hours running, power cycles, and temperature being the most important. The program's strength lies in the 15 tests performed on each drive. Most users won't care about the raw numbers, but they will be interested in the drive's current state and if each test result stayed below the failure threshold. We liked the simple list that gives the current and worst results for each test. Combined with the other scores, a user can quickly determine whether the drive is quickly headed toward failure.

Users can easily set a threshold for any of the tests. You can easily enable DHealth Personal to show an error dialog or e-mail you if a particular test fails below a user-set limit. Not every tester experienced the second drive error, but enough did to cause concern. If the 15-day demo works for you, DHealth Personal's hard drive tests and monitoring tools could save you from unexpected hard drive failure.
