A Hard Drive Monitoring Software that continuously runs in the background and intelligently issues warning messages against hard disk problems by monitoring its performance as well as current health status.
Stellar Hard Disk Monitoring tool provides basic information as well as technical specifications about the hard disk. The 'Disk Information' section shows information, such as Model Number, Serial Number, Firmware Revision Number etc, where as the 'Advanced Information' section shows Total Sectors, Number of Cylinders, Number of Heads, Disk Size, Physical Buffer Size etc.
This hard drive monitoring utility monitors various hard disk attributes continuously, shows their fitness level and issues warning message against impending drive failure. Some of the crucial hard disk attributes monitored by the SMART feature of the software include Spin Up Time, Write Error Count, Raw Read Error Rate, Temperature, Spin Retry Count etc.
The 'Scheduler' option of the hard disk monitoring software helps in configuring the time intervals in which the software will check for real-time health status of the hard disk. With the 'Time Scheduling' sub-option, you can set a time interval (Between 5 to 60 minutes) for disk checking. Similarly, the 'Log Scheduling' sub-option allows setting the number of log files (1 to 10) to be created.
Stellar hard drive diagnostic software automatically sends warning emails and pop-up alerts, when the temperature of the hard disk reaches a critical point. The software allows you to set the temperature to send warning message, temperature to shut down and email IDs to send & receive warning emails.
The hard drive monitoring software provides a graph that records every temperature fluctuation of the hard disk. In the graph, the green line represents the current hard disk temperature with its fluctuation over time, the yellow line represents the scheduled temperature to send warning message and the red one represents the scheduled temperature to shut down the system.
Under the 'Benchmark' tab of this hard drive diagnostic software, you can graphically see the hard disk data transfer rate and CPU Usage over time. The graph also displays the average data transfer rate of the hard disk in megabits per second over the stipulated time frame and the average CPU usage in percentage.
This hard disk monitoring software provides information regarding the bad blocks in your hard disk, which helps in taking appropriate action before troubles in the drive, resulting data loss. The software scans the hard disk and shows the bad blocks in red color, whereas the good blocks are marked green. It also shows the total disk space scanned and the amount that is bad.
Stellar Hard Drive Monitoring Software helps in making a clone of your hard drive by copying the content of the potentially fatal disk to a healthy one. While cloning, the software writes data from the beginning of the destination disk and leaves the extra amount untouched for your use. Note that the destination drive must have greater storage capacity than the source drive.
