Hard Disk Sentinel (HDSentinel) is a hard disk monitoring software with the highest possible support of HDD/SSD/SSHD (hybrid) drives. Its goal is to find, test, diagnose and repair hard disk drive problems, report, and display SSD and HDD health, performance degradations, and failures. Hard Disk Sentinel gives a complete textual description, tips, and displays/reports the most comprehensive information about the hard disks and solid-state disks inside the computer or in external enclosures (USB / e-SATA). Many different alerts and report options are available to ensure the maximum safety of your valuable data.
The software monitors hard disk drive / HDD status, including health, temperature, and all S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology, built-in most hard disks, solid-state disks, and hybrid drives (SSHD) today) values for each disk. Also, it measures the disk transfer speed in real-time which can be used as a benchmark or to detect possible hard disk failures, performance degradations.
