Hard Disk Sentinel (HDSentinel) is a multi-OS HDD/SSD monitoring and analysis application. Its goal is to find, test, diagnose and repair disk drive problems. Also, it reports and displays SSD and HDD health, performance degradations, and failures.
Hard Disk Sentinel gives a complete textual description, and tips and reports the most comprehensive information about the Hard Disk and Solid State Disks inside the computer or in external enclosures (USB, e-SATA). Many different alerts and report options are available to ensure the maximum safety of your valuable data.
Hard Disk Sentinel Features:
The software monitors the Hard Disk Drive status. That includes health, temperature, and all S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology, built-in in most HDD and SSD today) values for each disk.
Also, HDSentinel measures the disk transfer speed in real-time. It can be used as a benchmark or to detect possible HD failures, and performance degradations.
Hard Disk Sentinel is the perfect data protection solution. It can be effectively used to prevent HDD failure and SSD / HDD data loss. Because it has the most sensitive disk health rating system which is extremely sensitive to disk problems. This way even a small HDD problem can’t be missed.
The Professional version has scheduled and automatic (on-problem) disk backup options to prevent data loss caused by not only failure but by malware or accidental delete also.
HDD Sentinel runs in the background and verifies SSD / HDD health status by inspecting the SMART status of the disk(s). If an error is found or unexpected behaviour is detected, it warns the user about the current situation and also can perform appropriate actions. For example, start an automatic backup.
Usually, hard disk health status may slowly decline, from day to day. The SMART monitoring technology can predict HDD failure by examining the critical values of the disk drive. Hard Disk Sentinel detects and reports every disk problem compared to other software.
The software also displays the current hard disk temperature and logs maximum and average HDD temperatures. This may check the maximum temperature under a high hard disk load.
