Hard Disk Sentine

Genuinely interesting piece of software, because contrary to scores of programs claiming to do the same thing, it goes much beyond raw SMART data analysis. Without extensive tests including failing or failed disks, it’s of course impossible to tell whether this product lives up to its claims.
However, the publisher does explain why, according to him, the SMART system by itself does not protect accurately against drive failure, and what Hard Disk Sentinel does on top of that. (Essentially, analyzing SMART data history, and computing it in a way that differs from the SMART standard.) Check this page :
The offered Standard edition does not allow for portable installation (you need the Professional edition for that). Apart from that, most of the functions you don’t get are dispensable extras (except maybe from “Complete surface analysis, refresh, reinitialise”, and remote control if you happen to be in a network situation).
Editions comparison is here :
Amazingly, Hard Disk Sentinel also claims to monitor SSDs and SD cards.
Unfortunately, this is one more software which is not high DPI-aware. On my system, I get unpleasant rendering of fonts, either jagged or too thin. Most of the user interface text seems visible, though.
This irritating defect is all-too common on sofwtare written by individual developers working essentially as amateurs. It’s unacceptable for publishers such as Hard Disk Sentinel who claim to address corporations as well as home users.Jan 27, 2017 at 7:55 am #6954813

I have an older version on my computer and the newer version auto-registered after I made sure the older version was closed before I installed the newer version.Jan 27, 2017 at 9:09 pm #6963207

This software is amazing, i really do not know how i never heard of it, it simply smashes the opponents (aka ashampoo).
Many thanks! You save me 1.5tb of data!
I’m planning to buy the professional version later this year.Jan 29, 2017 at 9:27 am #6986610
Forgot to mention: PLEASE MAKE IT DPI AWARE. It looks blurry on DPI above 100%, and it looks tiny on my 4k display. Apart from that, it is perfect.Jan 29, 2017 at 1:37 pm #6988505
Great software , have it on all our computers .
Thanks Ashraf , keep up the good work .
