I am a technician of a computer maintenance company. I usually deal with a lot of failure about all kinds of computer module, such as display, display card, sound card, modem, network card, CPU, memory bank, keyboard, mouse and hard disk etc. Among these parts of computer I think tha hard disk is the most hard to maintain. Due to the essentiality of contents on the crashed hard disk I must maintain it and keep the contents safe at the same time. If the important or valuable contents are lost, I will waste not only money but also time and energy. What a terrible mater it is! And how should I do? Do you have the same troubles as me? Do not worry about it! Here I will commend you powerful and helpful tool that can monitor hard disk health. That is HDD Health which was published by PANTERASoft.Com. Give HDD Health a try and the date on your hard disk will more safe and you can set your heart at rest.

HDD Health is a full-featured failure-prediction agent for machines using Windows 95, 98, NT, Me, 2000 and XP. Sitting in the system tray, it monitors hard disks and alerts us to impending failure. HDD Health can discover a probable hard disk drive (HDD) fail before it actually occurs. In regular usage, HDD Health can calculate the nearest possible date of hard disk fail. HDD Health uses S.M.A.R.T. technology, included in all modern hard disks. S.M.A.R.T. is an HDD self-testing and monitoring technology described in detail here.

Simplified, it looks like the HDD is continuously making self-tests and calculating some"attributes", which reflect the current state of efficiency and status of the HDD. Each attribute means some detail in HDD status ĘC total hours of work, count of read errors, and others. If after a self-test, the HDD "thinks" that its state is changed, it changes the value of the corresponding attribute.

For example, if the time of spin-up from idle state changed, the HDD would change (lower) the value of the "Spin-Up Time" attribute. Each attribute has a threshold (lower) value and, at achievement, the HDD may stop working. HDD Health monitors attribute changes, analyzes speed of falling (lowering), and calculates remaining time of life HDD based on this data.

Furthermore, HDD Health shows other useful information about our HDD - supported standards, speed modes of operation, current mode of operation (PIO, DMA, UDMA&ldots;), and others. Detailed info about these modes can be found under "HDD technology". HDD Health requires certain system drivers to be installed to function correctly. Windows 95/98/ME requires that SMARTVSD.VXD be installed and registered. This can be accomplished by allowing the installer to do it automatically by choosing typical setup.

We can also copy the SMARTVSD.VXD file from the Windows 95/98 CD Rom to the Windows\System\Iosubsys directory. We will have to reboot the system. A host of alerting features include email, local pop-up messages, net messages, and event logging, while using no system resources

HDD Health is a full-featured failure-prediction agent for machines using Windows 95, 98, NT, Me, 2000 and XP. Sitting in the system tray, it monitors hard disks and alerts you to impending failure. The program uses Self Monitoring and Reporting Technology (S.M.A.R.T.) built into all new hard disks, and can predict failures on your hard drives. A host of alerting features include email, local pop-up messages, net messages, and event logging, while using no system resources.
