What is Hard Drive Inspector?

Hard Drive Inspector is a powerful, effective and easy-to-use program that monitors hard drive health.

Why you need to use Hard Drive Inspector?

The value of information stored on an average computer hard drive often exceeds the value of the computer itself. But a hard drive is one of the most unreliable internal computer devices. When it crashes (which happens quite frequently), the stored information will be lost fully or partially. Subsequent information recovery is either not possible at all, or constitutes a very sophisticated and expensive procedure that can be performed only by specialists.

How Hard Drive Inspector works?

Modern hard drives support S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology) that was specially developed to detect upcoming disk failures. Using this technology Hard Drive Inspector can monitor the current state of various life-critical parameters describing a disk’s reliability and performance. Hard Drive Inspector analyzes this data and warns the user if the parameters indicate a critical reduction of disk reliability. Timely alerts make it possible to copy the data and replace an unreliable disk, thus preventing information loss.

Health Summary page contains the the most important information about the current condition of hard disks. You don’t need any technical background to understand this information.

S.M.A.R.T. Details page contains detailed information about important parameters describing various aspects of the hard drive’s performance and reliability. It is intended mostly for the computer hardware specialists.
