Ashampoo HDD Control 2 monitors, maintains and defragments hard drives. The software supports not only all common IDE and serial ATA hard drives, but also provides improved support for external USB hard drives and solid state drives (SSDs). The extended user interface gives an overview of the status of your hard drives’ health, performance and temperature. It also offers lots of technical information on supported features and their current status. Furthermore the software supports the S.M.A.R.T self-test to check for electric and mechanic problems of hard drives as well as adjustment of the noise level and the power management (if supported by the hard drive).
With just a few clicks the software finds unused files and Internet traces, which can then be deleted. For the deletion of files and folders different erasing methods are available. Among the common methods Ashampoo HDD Control 2 uses the so-called “proactive” defragmentation. Furthermore it’s possible to restore accidentally deleted files and folders with Ashampoo HDD Control 2 and to use benchmark function, which checks the performance of hard drives.
