Features Stellar Drive Monitor
This System Monitor for Mac utility verifies all possible parameters of disk reliability to make sure you have enough time for backing up crucial files before a disaster strikes. Mentioned below are some salient features offered by the software:
The software has the ability to read SMART attributes to perform an overall health assessment of your hard disk. You can check individual disk parameters to determine when a risk of failure lurks in your system. The tool can display SMART information for all internal hard disks.
The software automates the process of hard disk health monitoring. This Drive Monitor Mac utility is designed to smartly run behind the scenes and take control of the disk activity. If the disk parameters deviate from their threshold values or a problem surfaces, it gives warning messages. You can manually verify the disk information by navigating to the software shortcut on your System Tray
The System Monitoring software gives you a summarized report of the disk analysis performed in the background. It displays general information about your hard disk or individual partitions on this disk, including drive title, size, free space, SMART Status, and more. You can choose to save this report as a text file in your system.
The software goes through a detailed block-level scanning of the hard disk to scout out bad sectors by marking them with a distinct color. By default, all the bad sectors on your disk will display as 'red' in color. You can change this color scheme according to your convenience to easily identify sector corruption on the disk.
This System Monitor for Mac software is a great advantage to those who want the tool to function in accordance with their requirements. You can set desired preferences in the software (such as temperature warning limit, startup option, system shutdown) to make sure you are well aware of the current state of your hard disk at any given point.
The software incorporates a feature 'Drive Performance' to allow checking the performance levels of any selected disk or volume by the process of sequential read/write or sustained read/write. You can see the minimum, average, or maximum performance levels using a bar graph, line graph, or Raw data representation.
No, Stellar Drive Monitor displays SMART status for only internal hard disks.
No, the software does not support RAID hard drives.
Albeit each attribute in the SMART status is an indicator of hard disk health, you can give more importance to these: Raw read error, spin up time, reallocated sector Ct, and Hardware Ecc Recovered.
This means you have minor sector corruption on your disk. You should back up as much data as possible, format the disk, and fix bad sectors.
The software helps you monitor Mac hard drives and determine their current condition. You can resolve issues or fix bad health of the disk using Stellar Drive Monitor.
