Hard Disk Sentinel (HDSentinel) is a multi-OS HDD/SDD monitoring and analysis application. Its goal is to find, test, diagnose and repair disk drive problems, report and display SDD and HDD health, performance degradations and failures. Hard Disk Sentinel gives complete textual description, tips and displays/reports the most comprehensive information about the hard disks and solid state disks inside the computer or in an external enclosure (USB / e-SATA). Many different alerts and report options are available to ensure maximum safety of your valuable data.The software monitors hard disk drive / HDD status, including health, temperature and all S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology, built in most hard disks and solid state disks today) values for each disks. Also it measures the disk transfer speed in real time which can be used as a benchmark or to detect possible hard disk failures, performance degradations.HDSentinel is the perfect data protection solution: it can be effectively used to prevent HDD failure and SDD / 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.

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. Compared to other software, Hard Disk Sentinel detects and reports every disk problem. It is much more sensitive to disk failures and can display better and more detailed information about hard disk expected life and the problems found (if any). This is a more sophisticated way to predict failures than the "traditional" method: checking S.M.A.R.T. attribute thresholds and values only. For more information, please read how S.M.A.R.T. works and why Hard Disk Sentinel is different.The software displays the current hard disk temperature and logs maximum and average HDD temperatures. This may be used to check the maximum temperature under high hard disk load. For the importance of the hard disk operating temperature, see the F.A.Q. section. Please click here to see the list of features.Do I need Hard Disk Sentinel?If you are using a computer equipped with at least one hard disk or solid state disk and you want to ensure that your data will be available any time, then the answer is YES. Hard Disk Sentinel is especially designed to you if * you are using more hard disks in your computer (IDE / Serial ATA (S-ATA, e-SATA) / SCSI / USB) or in an external enclosure (list of compatible hardware) * you are using a mobile rack with a hard disk inside * you are using notebook computer * you are using server or desktop computers with high disk load * you want to maximize system stability, HDD performance and overall integrity, receive HDD alert on high temperature or low health * you do not want to lose your sensitive and valuable data, do not want to pay for HDD recovery FeaturesEasy to use interfaceAll information are displayed in the main window of the application. Quick controls allow easy navigation to access all hard disks, partitions and different information. Intuitive user interface elements display information by using green/yellow/red color to indicate the level of problem. Detailed text description and context sensitive help guides the user thru the features and options.1. Install > 2. Configure > 3. Stay protectedJust install, configure alerts and backup options and your system is now safe. You'll be notified about the problems - but if everything is correct, Hard Disk Sentinel just sits on tray and displays current status. The data is protected 24 hours daily, 7 days a week.Instant S.M.A.R.T. analysingHard Disk Sentinel can communicate with IDE, Serial ATA, SCSI and some special USB hard disks to detect their status and temperature. Disk status are displayed immediately as you launch the application, there is no need to analyse disks for a long period. It displays the current and maximum temperature for the hard disk. It reads all general and vendor-specific attributes and monitor their values. For advanced users, all raw data are displayed also including power-on time and number of read/write errors. Hard Disk Sentinel interprets the performance and fitness related S.M.A.R.T. values and displays the calculated Performance and Health percentage, total power on time and estimated lifetime remaining.Disk status in Windows ExplorerView the current health status and used space in WindowsExplorer or in any other application, so you'll always know theamount of used space for each partitions and the disk condition. Hard disk health and used space displayed on disk iconsInformation on demandCurrent hard disk temperatures and health can be displyed on the system tray, in a small status window and on the desktop itself. Average and maximum temperatures are logged for all hard disks and these informations are displayed in graphs for statistical purposes.Hard Disk Hardware TestingBy using Hard Disk Sentinel, it is possible to start hardware hard disk self tests. These tests can be used to effectively find all hard disk problems because built-in hardware methods are used to verify hard disk components (for example heads, servo, internal buffer in the Short self test). The Extended self test also verifies the complete disk surface, finds and repairs all "weak" areas and re-allocates the possible bad sectors. This is not possible with the software-based disk surface scan methods (for example, by using scandisk).LoggingHard Disk Sentinel logs all degradations in all SMART parameters. For example, if a new uncorrectable sector is found on your hard disk, you will be notified.AlertsHard Disk Sentinel can make different kind of alerts upon different problems. It can execute various tasks (even external applications) in case of a problem. There is an option to send daily emails about current status.Hard Disk DetailsDetects and displays every information about the hard disk, from the revision number and buffer size to all features it has. The maximum available and current transfer modes are also displayed.Hard Disk PerformanceLogs how much data were read from or written to the hard disk. Displays current transfer rates for both reading and writing and estimates the maximum available (theoretical) transfer rate for a particular hard disk.Hard Disk PartitionsDisplays partitions for each physical hard disks and type and usage informations about them so you cannot run out of space. Hard Disk Sentinel sends this information automatically in alert/status messages.ShutdownIt offers option to shut down the computer on failure, overheat or parameter degradation. This option can be used to prevent further data loss.Acoustic ManagementOffers option to control the acoustic level of IDE/S-ATA hard disk. It is possible to increase performance or make the disks more silent. Unique feature: control the acoustic level of your external USB hard disk (if your USB enclosure is equipped with proper USB-ATA bridge chip which supports this feature).Clock SynchronizationIt offers option to synchronize the PC clock with an atomic clock via NTP (Network Time Protocol).BackupIn the Professional version, wide range of backup methods are available: to backup data to local computer, to a LAN server or to a remote FTP (or to a mail) server. It is even possible to use 3rd party tools to create archives or burn media. Hard Disk Sentinel can manage power status of remote computers in the network.ImprovementsHard Disk Sentinel is constantly improving. More features will be available soon. If you have any idea which can be useful, just let us know.System Requirements * Windows operating system (Windows 95, 98, 98SE, ME, NT4, 2000, XP, 2003, 2008, Vista, Windows 7) * System administrator account (in service mode, it is possible to use without administrator rights and without even user logged in) * At least 15 megabytes of hard disk space * Hard disk with ATA (IDE or Serial ATA/SATA II), SCSI, SAS, USB interface. USB hard disk support depends on the USB-ATA bridge chips. Other type of external disks (USB or IEEE 1394) are NOT supported because the hard disk controller chip in the external enclosure does not support the detection of S.M.A.R.T. information.Note: RAID arrays usually do not provide S.M.A.R.T. informations. However, standalone hard disks connected to standard RAID controllers (for example motherboard integrated RAID controllers, like NVidia, Intel RAID) provide this information most of the time. If you have good or bad experiences or compatibility problems, please let us know.Note: Hard Disk Sentinel can read and display all such information about hard disks inside the arrays if the RAID array is controlled by 3ware / AMCC 7xxx, 8xxx, 9xxx controllers. It is also possible to manage these drives like standalone drives.Note: hard disk controller drivers can also cause incompatibility problems and this case not all hard disk information may be displayed. For more information, please check the compatibility page and for some solutions, please read the information in the F.A.Q.
