Why you need one Hard Drive Monitor?
Vast majority of the PC users are saving the most important files and data on their hard disks, as the most reliable types of permanent storage. This utility is designed to take care of these hard drives, supporting reading and monitoring S.M.A.R.T. data.
While you run some big data operations on your disk for a long time, your hard drive will eventually heat up. Once the drive temperature rises over certain critical point, the drive operation becomes dangerous. This program by any means is not data recovery software, but it can help you to monitor all your hard disks, and react quickly before you may experience hardware failure. It is a free and handy HDD diagnostic utility for your everyday use.
S.M.A.R.T. is acronym for "Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology" (sometimes written as SMART). It allows monitoring computer hard disks to detect and report on various indicators of reliability. All major Hard Drives manufacturers support one or more S.M.A.R.T. attributes in various products, such as Samsung, Seagate, Hitachi (HGST), Fujitsu, Maxtor (purchased by Seagate), and Western Digital.
