WindowSMART 2012 continuously monitors the health of hard disks and Solid State Disks (SSDs) in your desktops, laptops and even servers running Windows XP/Server 2003 through Windows 8/Server 2012, and alerts you if problems are detected. You can be notified by email, and if you have an Android or Apple phone or tablet, you can be instantly notified through Notify My Android and Prowl, respectively, on those devices. WindowSMART 2012 supports most desktop and laptop disk controllers with no additional action on your part. However, some controllers may require you to perform a driver upgrade to collect SMART data from them. Most external USB and FireWire enclosures are supported as well. Unfortunately, hardware RAID is not supported, and support for SAS controllers is currently very limited.
Additional features include running SMART self-tests (short, extended and conveyance) and exporting SMART results in a variety of formats (HTML, plain text, CSV and TSV), which makes it easy to share your results with colleagues or in an online forum, especially if you have questions.
The install package contains both 32- and 64-bit versions of WindowSMART, along with Microsoft redistributable prerequisite components (Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Full and Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Runtime). Setup will check for these prerequisite components and offer to install them if they are missing.
