Active SMART 2.62

Active SMART is an award winning hard 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.

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 available.

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 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.

ActiveSMART will:
• enable the S.M.A.R.T. technology in your hard drives
• retrieve internal diagnostic information from your disks, analyze and show it
• calculate the disk Health, Performance and overall disk status
• check the hard drive Temperature

Just as soon as the hard disk state changes, an S.M.A.R.T. system, integrated into the disk, notifies you about it. The disk condition may slowly decline; however, this might not show for a bit, while the disk is able to correct its own mistakes. That can go on for some time until, one day, the disk is not able to fix its mistakes and the data on the disk is no longer readable or recoverable.
All this time, while the disk condition was growing worse, the S.M.A.R.T. system has been notifying you about it. To obtain this information in time and save your data from an unexpected failure, simply install Active SMART. Installing Active SMART, you protect your data!

S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology) is implemented into all of the modern hard disks. A special program inside the disk constantly keeps tracking the condition of a range of the vital parameters: driver, disk heads, surface state, electronics, etc. At the present time, S.M.A.R.T. technology is able to predict up to 70% of all hard disk problems! However, to use this information, you firstly have to retrieve it from the disk and analyze it. This is one of the Active SMART program's tasks.
