HDDlife Pro is a straightforward piece of software that shows the health status of your HDD based on S.M.A.R.T. analysis, and triggers alerts on critical levels. It primarily caters to advanced computer users.
The interface is made from a regular window with a plain and simple layout, where you can view health status and performance meters, along with the label, file system, capacity and free space of your logical disks. This report can be saved to LOG format for further scrutiny.
S.M.A.R.T. attributes show the value, threshold, worst, RAW, and status of the raw read error rate, spin up time, start/stop count, reallocated sectors count, seek error state, power-on hours, and others.
Additionally, you can ask HDDlife Pro to check the HDD drive temperature every few minutes/seconds, choose the temperature display unit, as well as customize text and background colors for normal status, together with the urgent and critical temperature level (for alerts). These options are also applicable when it comes to verifying hard disk free space.
As far as warnings are concerned, you can send alerts to an email account or to a remote computer in your LAN, play sound, and schedule the machine to sleep, hibernate or power off.
Other options of HDDlife Pro let you specify warning bindings, customize skins, enable or disable tray display, and set the tool to autorun at Windows boot.
The application does not put a strain on system resources, since it requires a minimal amount of CPU and RAM to work properly. It has a good response time and works well, without causing the OS to hang, crash or pop up error dialogs. All in all, HDDlife Pro is a reliable utility for preventing hard drive failure.
