Computers have become a necessary part of our daily lives and we have become dependent on instant access to the data stored on the hard drives inside our PCs. Just about everyone has either experienced a disk failure or knows someone that did. It’s unavoidable as all disks eventually fail. This is why Acronis developed Acronis Drive Monitor as a free tool for the community at large.
Key benefits include: * Automatically checks for disk problems – Monitors state and health of physical drives via S.M.A.R.T. parameters (including temperature, seek error rate, spin-up time and more than 20 other indicators) and displays the status * Monitors critical events that indicate a risk to data safety – Unless noticed early, these problems may become more severe and lead to partial or complete data loss * Automatically receive warning alerts – Get immediate notification of early warnings of drive malfunctions in order that preventive actions can be taken * State of disk backups – Be alerted if your latest backup has failed or if you haven’t created a backup for a while. Otherwise, you’ll automatically be reminded of the need for a backup whenever a potential hard drive problem is detected * Weekly status Reports – Stay current about electromechanical health of all drives with weekly reports.
