Hard Disk Sentinel commonly called HDDSentinel by its users, is an utility dedicated to monitor computer's hard-disks; its support is extended to fixed-disks as removable ones. The monitoring process, involves real-time analysis, detecting performance degradation and even read / write errors, preventing future critical issues that can stop the whole system with possible data loss.
This program provides detailed information about the current status of monitored disks, including alerts and reports. It helps IT teams to act proactively, preventing system failure scenarios with possible data loss.
While this program is designed for advanced users, its interface is simple and clear; it is an advantage at the implementation, allowing operators to take advantage of its functions since its installation. HDD Sentinel consists of a main screen that provides detailed information about the attached disks to the computer. It is divided into two categories, the physical area, that includes serial number, model and firmware version; the second that provides logic type information, such as partition type, number of sectors, and data transfer rate.
In relation to HDDSentinel's functions, as mentioned above, they are divided into preventive monitoring and disk repairing; this latter includes five different ways; some of them perform a read-only test for diagnosis purposes; the others perform sectors and clusters repairing (read / write processing). When a repairing task is started, it is advisable to have a previous backup, according to safety standards.
The alert systems can be adjusted according to the specific user needs; for example, the program sends alerts in situations where the hard disk's temperature exceeds normal values. In cases where the free space is below the predefined levels or in extreme situations when the hard drive is reporting writing errors. In such cases, the program can start an emergency backup process and optionally shutdown system, preventing data corruption. We must emphasize that Hard Disk Sentinel allows a high-security level, especially in servers. The alert system enables IT Team to act immediately, avoiding disaster scenarios.
In conclusion, Hard Disk Sentinel is a powerful utility that provides in deep hard disk's monitoring. Our Editor's Team has verified its functions performing several tests, which showed clearly that the program has an excellent quality; in fact, it is a 100% bugs-free class, according to our reports. Finally, our Editors recommend it as an essential software for high-transactions systems.
