DriveSitter Pro is a deluxe hard disk drive diagnostic and background monitoring tool. Based on the well proven S.M.A.R.T. (Self Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology), it constantly analyzes up to 30 health aspects per HDD and optionally displays its temperature in the system tray.
DriveSitter Pro reliably detects and forecasts up to 70% of all sudden HDD crashes before they occur: You will be alerted of unhealthy conditions and imminent HDD crashes by various notifications ranging from simple message boxes over emails and network messages to the execution of user-defined files. This will give you the chance to react on hazardous HDD crashes before they happen, thus giving you precious time to save your important data. It protects you from sudden data loss!
DriveSitter Pro runs unnoticeable in the background and does not disturb you - even while playing state-of-the-art computer games. It uses scientific calculations that provide a minimum of false alarms for all forecasts.
Apart from that, DriveSitter Pro provides a vast amount of information on HDD internals and partitions, displays progression graphics and reports advanced descriptive statistics on the recorded data. Almost every information about a hard disk drive and the health status can be exported to voluminous HTML or plain text reports.
DriveSitter Pro features an automatic internet updater and very flexible options. The user interface is concise but elegant and the extensive program help is well structured with a handy searchable index.
DriveSitter Pro is a very useful tool - you should give it a try.
