Excellent tool 5 stars by pcs800 Oct 11, 2007 (Read all my 222 reviews)
This is a must have for people running Windows based servers of any kind. I like the fact that it will send email warnings for different scenarios, not just a complete drive failure. Auto updates, drives temps displayed in the sys tray in celcius, fahrenheit and other units I never knew existed. show Review details
The best I`ve found 5 stars by objective Jul 13, 2006 (Read all my 10 reviews)
I have now tried a slew of S.M.A.R.T. utilities, freeware and shareware alike, and I've found none better than DriveSitter. The interface is very, very nice--windows remember their size and positions, columns auto-adjust, context sensitive help abounds, tooltips provide helpful advice, and so on. There is an option to avoid querying drives while they are in sleep mode, which is an option I found mysteriously lacking in competing software. You can configure DriveSitter to monitor only overall S.M.A.R.T. status, individual S.M.A.R.T. metrics (with the ability to exclude individual metrics; an important feature), or both--and you can do this on a per-drive basis. Nice stuff. I did find it a bit hard to swallow having to buy a "family license", but given that I have a laptop and a desktop, each with two hard drives, I'll take the plunge. To me, it's worth it to have the best, and to potentially prevent a real hassle. show Review details
