Hi

Hddlife in both free and shareware versions lets to monitor the health of our precious hard drives.


HDDlife Pro works with computers, laptops, notebook, and external USB hard drives, too. HDDLIFE Notebook edition adds the Power saving modes of hard drives support.

HDDlife - freeware real-time hard-drive monitoring utility with alerts, malfunction protection and data loss prevention functions. This hard-drive inspector is a proactive hard drive failure detection system that controls 100% of hard-drive risks.

Some options are disabled in the free version.

With the technology called JustNow HDDlife will let you to see the health and performance of our hard drives immediately when we start the program. No more waiting for a lengthy surface scan!
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.
It has a clear single-page straightforward easy use interface with all options reached easily. So can't get lost in searching for a desired information. It has a concise Help file that should guide novice users through program background and operation. Once opened the app checks more than 20 hard-drive parameters, then immediately displays health status, performance, and select drive information.


Hard drive activity monitoring can be viewed through a system tray icon or through Windows Vista and Google gadgets that are included with the software.
All hard drive(s) that support S.M.A.R.T. technology can be monitored by HDDLIFE.

HDDLIFE monitors the temperature and alerts you when increase of the temperature is noticed so cooling will be necessary in order to avoid drastic decline of our drive's performance.


Unfortunately, not all controllers of USB hard drives support S.M.A.R.T. commands so it is impossible to determine the state of health for such disks.


With HDDlife Pro users can also monitor the age of the hard drive, can tweak the energy consumption to make the computer more efficient, and can reduce the noise level by up to 15%.
This is what I liked most the option of tweaking which can give to us more idea ans which kind of hard drives to purchase if replacement is necessary or to add into a vacant slot.


HDDlife monitors also the free space available on our hard drives. If there is not enough free space then the performance declines rapidly so cleaning will be necessary to free the necessary space for optimal use.



HDDlife® will:
•Control the health of your hard drives with the S.M.A.R.T. technology and warn you about potential problems the moment they start developing. Yap through sonot alert!
•Monitor all your hard drives in the background - all the time!
•Support external USB disks.
•Display the drive's health, temperature, resources and free space.
•Display hard disk activities in the system tray, Windows Vista Sidebar and Google Desktop.
•Deliver those warnings by email or over the network, play an alert sound or automatically turn the computer off.
•Save a report with all valuable datas.

To display the drive's raw S.M.A.R.T. values, HDDlife Pro must maintain an Internet connection to the publisher's database.Also, in the future they are going to provide users with access to this data right from the HDDlife® interface (for example, for you to see the average temperature of drives similar to yours, etc.).


So if your PC is in your Bedroom then just check HDDLife Pro and see that you can reduce the noise of your drive without getting low activit.

Moderne hard drives are more reliable then yesterday disks but still due the amount of data writting/reading and also due to the density of data storrage plus all the electronic amortization makes them vulnerable and monitoring programs are handy to avoid the D day.
Using hard drive with caution is important in order to use it for a longer time without data loss and certainly HDDLIFE can play the role of the monitor.

Finally HDDlife® supports only IDE and Serial ATA disks, but does not support yet RAID disks.
It works with Win2000/XP/2003/Vista
