Editors' Review

This freeware application is supposed to monitor your hard drive health, but it didn't give us the right readings.

As soon as HDDlife's installation begins, you're offered the choice to try a trial version of HDDlife Pro instead. If you stay with the free program, the program's plain interface displays hard drive temperature, health status, and performance ratings, but details are disabled unless you upgrade.

The main flaw with HDDlife was in the incorrect health status reading of our test hard drive. The program showed a critical rating, with a prompt to immediately back up the computer to prevent data loss. This diagnosis wasn't confirmed, however, when we checked with other tools.

Users beware: HDDlife wasn't a very reliable tool for monitoring hard drive health, and its primary purpose seems to be to get you to upgrade to a paid version.
