Active SMART is an award winninghard disk status analyzer and failure prediction software for your hard drive. It uses S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology) to monitor the health status of Hard Disk Drives (HDD), prevents data loss and predicts possible drive fail using special algorithms.
Through the S.M.A.R.T. system, hard disk drives incorporate a
suite of advanced diagnostics that monitor the
internal operations of a drive and provide an
early warning for many types of potential
problems. When a potential problem is detected,
the drive can be repaired or replaced before any
data are lost.
The S.M.A.R.T. system consists
of software that resides both on the disk drive
and on the host computer. The software on the disk
drive monitors the internal performance of the
motors, media, heads, and electronics of the
drive. The host software (Active SMART) determines
the overall reliability of the drive by analyzing
the drive's internal performance parameters and
comparing them to predetermined threshold limits.
Active SMART has several monitoring
modes and can be used for personal use as well as
for large computer systems. Various local and
remote monitoring modes and alerting options are
Active SMART allows every HDD in the
system to be monitored for faults and potential
failure 24 hours for a day for things that may
lead to a crash. If a fault is detected, you are
notified with various local alerting options. Also
remote notifications via e-mail or network
messenger are available.
With Active SMART
monitor you have full information about S.M.A.R.T.
status of the hard disk, general information about
the drive, special information about drive's
features and manufacturing information. No special
technical knowledge is required to use Active SMART.
