Active@ Hard Disk Monitor

Active@ Hard Disk Monitor 5.0

Monitor the health status of your hard drives and find bad sectors

Active@ Hard Disk Monitor is a Windows utility developed for users who wish to immediately check the current health status of their hard drives. It lives in your System Tray from where you can access its Settings panel, reveal the main window or refresh the contents of the offered report.

Once you launch the tool on your PC, it immediately starts fetching info about the current status of your hard drives. Once the scanning process is complete you can export the offered info to your local directories and share the resulting file with a member of a support team for assistance.

I like the fact that you can configure the tool to automatically send an email as soon as it identifies critical hard drive issues. Another important aspect is that the utility uses a very small amount of CPU resources while running on your PC.

The only disadvantage is that it supports only one output format when exporting SMART data reports (TXT).

In conclusion, you should definitely try Active@ Hard Disk Monitor on your Windows computer if you want to easily keep track of the current status of your hard drives. It's a great solution for preventing data loss on your PC.
