Have you ever suffered through the pain and agony of a hard drive failure? To you, it's pretty straightforward -- one day your computer is humming along smoothly, and the next day it won't boot at all. But what you may not know is that, beyond the capabilities of your human senses, a whole host of little warning signs and other signals can actually tell you when hard drive failure is imminent! That's why Hard Disk Sentinel is so important.

Hard Disk Sentinel monitors and analyzes your hard disk and solid state drives, giving you valuable feedback on the health of the drive, any performance degradations, and warning of impending failure. With Hard Disk Sentinel, you'll be able to find, test, diagnose, and even repair disk drive issues before they escalate to catastrophic status.

And you won't have to worry about getting overwhelmed with a bunch of technical babble -- Hard Disk Sentinel gives you an easily understandable description of what's going on, and offers tips on how to proceed! A laundry list of alerts and reports gives you the ultimate flexibility to determine how close you wish to monitor your drives, letting you safeguard your data at all times.

Unlike some other titles on the market, Hard Disk Sentinel is a complete monitoring solution. There's no need to purchase other tools in order to verify internal hard disks, external hard disks, SSDs, or disks in RAID arrays!

What kinds of info do you get with Hard Disk Sentinel? How about temperature, and the ability to view S.M.A.R.T. (Self Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology) data, a feature built into the latest disk drives. There's also real-time monitoring of disk transfer speeds, an important indicator of a failing hard drive!

Janos Mathe @John: Yes, I can confirm that Windows Home Server 2011 is also supported, works without problems.

I'm afraid monitoring the health/temperature status of mapped network drives is not really possible, as they do not provide such information.

Hard Disk Sentinel can monitor their capacity / usage and can even alert when the free space drops below a limit on any logical drives (even mapped network drives) but currently it can detect the health/temperature only on locally connected (internal/external) drives.

Janos Mathe Thanks for your message and excuse me for the confusion.

Generally, the "Download" page ( www.hdsentinel.com/download.php ) contains the download links to all different versions.

So to use the latest possible licensed version, download the Hard Disk Sentinel (standard) 4.60 version from the Download page ( http://www.hdsentinel.com/download.php ) or directly from http://www.harddisksentin..._setup.zip

After installation, to register and activate your product, please click on "Help" and select "Enter registration key" in Hard Disk Sentinel.

Please enter your name (or nickname) as username, the license code you received (the 15 digit number) and click on the "Register and activate on-line" button.

Then the software should be registered and activated and can be used without limitations.Note that the software need to access the activation server during the activation, so your firewall should not block it.

Ps. I also sent answer in e-mail many hours ago, immediately after your message.

Excuse me, but I can confirm that there IS a problem there...

The problem is that you just didn't understood correctly what I have said.

I understand what you said but that doesn't directly concerns the problem I have been talking about.

The Notification Zone is divided into 2 parts : a visible part and a masked one.

The visible part is the part which is clearly visible in the right corner of the Taskbar.

The masked part is the one which will appear if you click on the upper triangle icon which always appears at the leftmost position of the Notification Zone. When you click on that upper triangle icon the masked part of the Notification Zone appears as a small squared window which contains all the icons that you told Windows to mask or to show only when there is a specific message coming from them.

I always customize the Notification Zone so that only very specific icons are visible in the Notification Zone and I tell Windows to mask all the other icons of the Notification Zone, so that these will appear only in the little square window which appears when you click on the upper triangle.

All the icons that I tell Windows to mask in the Notification Zone obey correctly to this command, except the temperature icon of Hard Disk Sentinel.

When I tell Windows to mask this very specific icon in the Notification Zone, it keeps coming visible and it is the only icon of all the icons of the Notification Zone (visible or masked) that doesn't obey correctly to the command given to mask it. In fact the icon obeys the command for a certain amount of time, but after a while it becomes visible again in the Notification Zone.

That is what I was talking about in my first comment and the answer you gave to me doesn't concerns this very specific aspect but another one, a little bit different.

I don't tend to believe that it is a Windows' problem, but a Hard Disk Sentinel's one, because it's temperature icon is the only icon of the Notification Zone that does not obey correctly to the masking command, all the other icons work correctly.

Please, be sure to understand correctly what I say before giving me an answer.

Thank you very much for your help.

Janos Mathe @Sputnik:
Thanks for the clarification.

Excuse me, yes, I did not understand. I thought you prefer to completely hide all tray icons related to the hard disks (and generally Hard Disk Sentinel) to prevent displaying any of the icons.

But now I see that you want that Hard Disk Sentinel should display the icon(s), just should be masked by Windows.

Yes, I can confirm that from time to time (for example yes, as you noticed when a new removable drive inserted) Hard Disk Sentinel automatically hides and shows again the associated tray icon(s). This originally designed to process all of its icons together, to display them next to each other.
The Windows masking featur may affect only an already displayed icon - but when the icons refreshed / re-displayed, the masking function longer hides the icon - as you can see.

I'll check the possibilities and adjust in a future version.

Sorry for the mis-understanding

Thank you : now we speak the same language.

In fact, the problem arises even if it is the same external hard disk(s) which is (are) powered on so to be able to make the daily backup(s) or anything else.

I tend to think that this problem would be coming from the fact that Windows sees the information coming from Hard Disk Sentinel as if it was related to a whole new hard disk, each time that we connect the exact same external hard disk. That would be the reason why Windows applies the default behavior to the icon related to this external hard disk instead of applying to it the behavior we previously gave to this icon the last time the hard disk was connected.

That would be great if you could fix this minor but annoying issue. Otherwise, as I previously said in my first comment, Hard Disk Sentinel is a very handy software and everybody should install it on their computer.
