Accurately monitor the health of your hard drives with this comprehensive tool. HDDlife Pro's single-page interface displays comprehensive jargon-free information. The program's clear, concise Help file should guide novice users through program background and operation.
Operating HDDlife Pro couldn't be easier. At first run, the app checks more than 20 hard-drive parameters, then immediately displays health status, performance, and select drive information. The interface shows simple percentage bar graphs for health and performance, but offers single-click links for detailed information. A very helpful Conclusion window breaks the scores down into plain language. A temperature bar stays high on the information screen showing the drive's current and maximum temperatures. Additional graphs display drive capacity and free-space information. A tray icon displays the drive's current temperature, and pops up select data after updating drive status.
To display the drive's raw S.M.A.R.T. values, HDDlife Pro must maintain an Internet connection to the publisher's database. The 14-day trial is more than long enough for intermediate to advanced users to come to rely on this app for helpful drive-health information.
HDDlife Pro provides advanced warning when hard drives are about to fail so users can take the necessary steps to protect or back up their valuable and irreplaceable files. This hard drive monitor software includes JustNow technology so the hard drive's health can be monitored from the moment the computer starts up and AnywhereView which allows users to view the hard drive information in the existing Windows disk icons. With the latter technology, users will always know at a glance how much hard drive space is available, if the hard drive is running hot, and more. Hard drive activity can be viewed through a system tray icon or through Windows Vista and Google gadgets that are included with the software.
