The application uses S.M.A.R.T. technology (Self Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology), which detects failures on the hard drive and gives detailed information about its functioning and condition.
Active Hard Disk Monitor will also display the hard drive’s temperature, notifying you if inadvisable temperature levels are reached. Additionally, it includes a Scan Disk feature to scan the surface of your drives in search of errors.
Finally, Active Hard Disk Monitor can check the drive periodically, and even notify you of any incident via e-mail so you can monitor your system no matter where you are.
