Personal SmartCheck (PSC) is a unique software program that is designed to provide detailed and comprehensive information about the condition and status of the hard drives on your computer.
S.M.A.R.T. stands for Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology. It was developed by a number of major Hard Disk Drive Manufacturers in a concerted effort to increase the reliability of drives. It is a technology that enables the PC to predict the future failure of hard disk drives. S.M.A.R.T. technology has become an industry standard for hard drive manufacturers.
S.M.A.R.T. monitors the disk's performance, bad sectors, calibration, CRC errors, disk spin up time, distance between the head and the disk, temperature, features of medium, heads, motor or servomechanism. In all, over 35 attributes are covered by S.M.A.R.T. The errors that the system can detect can be predicted by a number of methods. Currently the SMART system can detect around 70% of all hard drive errors.
For example, motor and/or bearing failure can be predicted by an increase in the drive spin-up time and the number of retries it takes to succeed in spinning up the drive. Or, if the drive notes that the error correction is being used excessively, it can attribute this to a broken drive head or contamination, and alert before the problem gets worse.
Armed with a failure prediction, the user or system manager can back up key data, replace a suspect device prior to data loss, or avoid undesired downtime.
Personal SmartCheck uses S.M.A.R.T. technology to monitor all PC's hard drive's internal S.M.A.R.T. attributes, predict possible drive fail and prevent data loss. Using predictions settings, Personal SmartCheck lets you know about a potential disk health problem before you lose valuable data.
With Personal SmartCheck, you will have the most recent information about the health of all hard drives on your computer. Prediction of nearest T.E.C. of any hard drive can prevent valuable data loss by replacing a dangerous drive and backing up all your data.
When minimized, Personal SmartCheck shows the icon with the temperature value of the most hot hard drive in the system tray. This icon shows the maximum temperature of your hard drives. You can point this icon by the mouse and PSC will show a hint with temperatures of all hard drives.
Personal SmartCheck notifies you when the temperature of the hard drive exceeds the threshold by the balloon hint.
