HDDlife Notebook Edition monitors hard drive health and performance. It has been developed with the peculiarities of portable computers taken into account. Unique technologies make data information on the state of the hard drive highly precise and available at any moment. The JustNow instant measurement technology reflects the state of the hard drive as a percentage of a new drive. You can see this value right after you start the program. Another unique technology called AnywhereView makes drive performance indicators available from dialog boxes of any software application. These technologies provide clear and available information about the performance of the hard drive.
When HDDlife controls the work of the hard drive, it informs you about hard drive overheating or a decrease in its performance. It regularly measures the temperature and performance of the hard drive at the specified intervals. The state of the drive is displayed in the tray as a percentage of health and performance together with its temperature. The results of each check are displayed as a brief notification. Data about available disk space is also displayed there. Additional data about the drive, such as its total working time and structure, is available in the program window. HDDlife always keeps you informed about the state of the hard drive.
Besides displaying the current state of the drive, the program also gives recommendations on how to improve its work, when to back up data and prepare a replacement. In critical cases, it allows the user to automatically switch the system to the standby mode or to the power saving mode. It protects the system when it runs in the autonomous mode. When you control the system remotely, HDDlife can send messages with the results of the last check via the network or by e-mail. It will run in the background mode, regularly check the state of the hard drive and send reports to a remote computer.
