HDD Guardian 0.7.0 Multilingual + Portable
HDD Guardian provides a graphical interface to smartctl, an open source tool for querying and controlling SMART attributes data on modern hard disk drives. The program checks your hard drive's S.M.A.R.T attributes every four hours and alerts you in case of imminent failure, high temperature or other vital parameter changes.
HDD Guardian provides a quick overview screen that shows the current HDD temperature and health status as well as any warnings or errors that were detected during the last check. You can also review the values for individual S.M.A.R.T attributes, enable or disable HDD features, customize the monitoring settings and modify advanced Smartctl settings.
Other features include an option to run test manually, support for external drives, detailed hard drive information, error logging, and more.
