The work that you do on your computer is extremely important, so why leave potential hard drive issues up to fate? By the time your hard drive starts behaving strangely or making odd noises, it may be too late to save your data! With Hard Disk Sentinel Professional, you'll always have a complete overview of your hard drive's health, so you can spot potential problems before they result in an irrecoverable data catastrophe.

Hard Disk Sentinel is your key to identifying, testing, diagnosing, and repairing hard drive problems, and it even works with Solid State Drives. With Hard Disk Sentinel, you can instantly see reports detailing the total health of your drive, including temperature, self-monitoring data, transfer speeds, and more. Any deviation in these factors could be an early warning sign of impending drive failure!

Best of all, the software even works with hard disks that are being used in external enclosures, like those that let you hook up internal drives via a USB or e-SATA interface! If you move these drives around a lot, from office to home and from one computer to another (jostle, jostle), you owe it to yourself to get a copy of Hard Disk Sentinel today!

Boasting the most sensitive disk health rating system ever, Hard Disk Sentinel Professional will let you know about potential issues far sooner than any other program on the market today. You even enjoy the benefit of having automatic and scheduled disk backup options, which can work quickly to preserve your valuable bits and bytes in the event of a problem!

So avoid a data disaster today. Instead of paying a lot of money in the future for data recovery software or services, protect yourself today - allowing you to deal with problems before they even arise!

And with a Family License it's possible to use both the installed and the new Portable version of Hard Disk Sentinel Professional! The Portable version allows the flexibility of disk testing from a pen-drive or removable device -- no installation necessary!

John Terdik Hard Disk Sentinel is a must have utility. I've been using it for several years and it has prevented disaster for me several times by giving me early warning for a failing drive.

Ed Stoddard I recently downloaded a trial copy of Hard Disk Sentinel Pro and it showed that my hard drive had ONLY 4% health left, which meant it could die anytime. I tested the hard drives (3) in my other computer and they all tested healthy. So, since the first computer was my primary and the drive was about give up its life, according to HD Sentinel, I ordered an SSD to replace it with, thinking I would be able to clone it before my HD died.

Nope! After learning that the HD would not last long I setup TuneUp Utilities 2014 to run its Disk Doctor application to check for bad sectors and fix problems during a pre-boot scan. Unfortunately, the hard drive at this point was so messed up that the boot-scan would not complete and no matter what I did I could not get back into Windows. So, when the SSD came I had to do a new installation from the boot disk I created when I first upgraded to Windows 8 Pro 64-bit from Vista Ultimate 64-bit. I was able to access my data on my dying HD when used as a slave drive, and eventually got it all onto my new SSD. I did have to make a call to Microsoft to get Win 8 Pro activated again, but that went very smoothly, and actually didn't take much time.

My point is that Hard Disk Sentinel works! It alerted me to an emanate HD failure on my primary computer. If I had, had Hard Disk Sentinel installed earlier, I would have known this was coming and could have prepared for it much sooner. As it turned out I had just downloaded the trail version to see how my HD was doing, and I was really surprised to learn it was on it's last leg.

Hard Disk Sentinel is well for the few dollars one has to pay to have the ability KNOW the health of their hard drive before it goes bad! If you know in advance that your hard drive's health is diminishing, you can do backups and plan for a replacement drive. Without Hard Disk Sentinel you only know when your hard drive dies or starts doing very crazy things that you might think are caused by other hardware.

I ordered the Hard Disk Sentinel Professional Family version so I can easily check all my kids computers, too, using the USB portable version.

Janos Mathe Hi Ed,
Thanks for your message and words!
Glad to hear that it was possible to get the data from the hard disk at that point and this way the data loss could be avoided.

Just a tip: Hard Disk Sentinel offers numerous tests to diagnose the hard disks (in addition to the constant monitoring and error-reporting) - so they can be used any time to verify the situaiton, reveal and fix possible problems.

James Snead I believe I ordered the Professional Family License on 6/1/14 from a previous 5/31/14 BitsDuJur promotion. My credit card was billed on 6/1/14 through DRI. I did not receive any order confirmation, download, or activation codes. I already have a single user license.

Janos Mathe @James:

Thanks for your message and excuse me for the troubles, maybe the original e-mail (sent by Share-it on 31 May 2014 with the registration code and details) lost somehow.

I did a quick lookup and I sent the license information (and the details about how to register the software) in e-mail.

Please confirm if you'll receive it now - or if not, please send an email to (maybe from an alternate e-mail address, just to be sure).

Excuse me again for the issue.

Tiberius Do you have another way than shareit1 to complete the transaction?
I pass through them twice and they ask me to wait 12 hours and then ask me to choose another mode of payment.
They always to that.

Janos Mathe Hi Tiberius,
Thanks for your message and excuse me for the troubles caused by Share-it.

Personally I also do not really understand why they delay Paypal transactions.
There is no bank(s) involved, no credit card processing, Paypal is simple and easy.

I sent e-mail to you about a possible option.

LIzabeth Torres Just a quick question is Hard Disk Sentinel is it just a diagnosing tool, or does it also provide repair tools for it users.
Jan 9 2015 at 7:04am Copy Link
Janos Mathe Yes, Hard Disk Sentinel Professional version offers different tests to both reveal new problems and also to repair hard disk issues.
These tests in Hard Disk Sentinel Professional forces the hard disk to examine the hard disk surface and reallocate problematic sectors (if required), so replace them with the spare area to improve usability.
Also these tests helps lots in fixing "bad sectors" reported by chkdsk (which are usually not real bad sectors).

Please check the following sections from the F.A.Q. page:
H.D.S. Hungary - Jan 9 2015 at 7:11am Copy Link
Janos Mathe Of course if hard disks are completely dead (can't be detected at all, can't spin up or so) then no software can help - as no software can replace the damaged components.
It is better to avoid this: with the constant monitoring and tests, it is better to reveal issues long before they can lead to failure and complete data loss.

Dirk Coleman I can't say enough how many times this software has saved me from losing data off drives that were beginning to fail that I would never have noticed without Hard Disk Sentinel Professional. It will let you know when sectors start appearing that are bad and if the number keep growing. It gives me time to get the data off of the HD on to another. I do have backups but it is so much easier to move to another drive.
I have rescued a couple of drives with the included tests and initialization versions but inevitably they end up failing anyway. I use those disks for temporary storage of unimportant items until they fail.

Feb 12 2019 at 12:41am Copy Link
Janos Mathe Hard Disk Sentinel Pro Family license can be used on up to 5 computers at any given time, for unlimited time and with lifetime free updates to all future versions.

If any of the PCs replaced, the license can be moved to new system of course, the only requirements is that at any given time, it should be used on up to 5 systems.

Chris Roy Jackson Was there a Change in the Registration Keys from Version 4.50 to Version 5.xx ???
I purchased my SECOND Pro Family Lifetime License a on August 16, 2012 HERE (See my Comment above.) and my FIRST License in November, 2011.
The latest Version (5.40) is Not recognizing My Registration Key. I get an error message when trying to Load it that says to "...Contact the Developer about your License".
Version 4.50 was the Last version I was using (More than 2 years ago when I changed Laptops). So Actually I have TWO (2) Family Pro Licenses (does that mean I have TWO Keys??? ...or is My Single Key Authorized for 10 PCs ???
Apr 15 2019 at 10:28pm Copy Link
Janos Mathe No, there are no changes.
If you ordered the lifetime license code (which grants free updates to all future versions), then of course it should work with all new, updated versions too.

Please proceed the registration and activation as you may did originally:

To use the latest possible licensed version, download Hard Disk Sentinel Professional 5.40 version from the Download page
( )
or directly from

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

Please enter your name (or nickname) as username, the license code you received (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.
Make sure that the software need to access the activation server during the activation, so your firewall should not block it.

You wrote that you tried to "load it". Not sure, but if you attempted to load a previous activated file (which related to the previous installation) then it is completely normal and expected that it does not work on a new installation (as described in the Help).

If you encounter troubles with the license code, please send in e-mail to info (at) hdsentinel (dot) com so it is possible to check what happened (for example maybe if used too many times and the server may temporary blocked it).
H.D.S. Hungary - Apr 15 2019 at 11:16pm Copy Link
Janos Mathe Yes, if you have 2 x Hard Disk Sentinel Pro Family license codes, then each can be used to register and activate the software on 5+5 computers (on a total of 10).
But if you try to use one license code on 10 system, it will not work, the result is that the license code will be blocked.
H.D.S. Hungary - Apr 15 2019 at 11:24pm Copy Link
Chris Roy Jackson Is it possible for you to email the Two License Codes to me? I seem to have Misplaced them! I SAVED THE Activation File, but Not the Reg Codes (15 Digits).

B User Hi there, this deal doesn't appear to be working as when I click the "Get this deal" button, it points me to the store site but the price up at $41.92 USD (which is based on a 30% off discount).

Jun 26 2022 at 11:03am Copy Link
Constantin Florea @B User, The correct discount is 30% off for this product. Specifically the discounted price should be $37.10 and the regular price $53.00. Please notice that it is possible that for some countries there is VAT added to the discounted price meaning the discounted price will be bigger. We are always showing the discounted price for USA because in that case there are no other added taxes.
BitsDuJour Admin - Jun 26 2022 at 2:46pm Copy Link
B User Both the daily deal email and the original deal on the website stated that it was a 50% off discount, but that's ok. Thanks.
Jun 26 2022 at 5:15pm Copy Link
Constantin Florea @B User, I am sorry about the issue. Indeed, you are correct, the 50% discount was shown but that is because some days ago we ran a promotion for this product and after that promotion ended, we missed updating the discounts back to the current values in time even though the vendor did let us know about it.

David F Hello HD Sentinel Developers ...
Hope you don't mind me asking, but can I buy a used hard drive and then run tests on it to check if it is in good shape? Like maybe let it run for 12 hours or something where it can get tested, and then your software will monitor that and give a performance rating or something?

Or, is there a way to format a new drive and run tests on it -- in one step -- where I will know that the used drive that I bought is ready to go and in good shape?

Please do reply, because I'm a student and would like to buy somethign liek this.

THank you.

Janos Mathe Please check:
Support -> Frequently Asked Questions page on
for this question:

Hard disk health is low or recently changed or I just installed a new (used) hard disk. How can I perform a deep analysis?

or directly at

which describes exactly this situation: suggests different tests to verify any (used or new) hard disk drives, to reveal and stabilize possible issues - or confirm if the drive is working correctly.
It is always recommended to perform such tests on used hard disks before using for real storage.
H.D.S. Hungary - Jul 13 2022 at 12:32am Copy Link
Master User I have used this software since I first helped test it in its earliest stages, and I have depended on it ever since. It is no lie that it has literally saved my data from total loss by sounding the alarm at the pre-aet 10 minute timer, giving me just enough time to do a massive drive-to-drive transfer, knowing that the drive I was transferring it to was checked and good.

It can run automatically with pre-set settings, or tuned to your professional's hearts content - and then run automatically! It is easy to read and understand, whether novice or pro, and as long as you know what you're doing, settings are easy to change,

This is definitely 5-star software regardless of the edition you get. (yes, I hold a certain prejudice here), As a retired single person living alone, the HDS Pro edition would make the most sense for me.

Feb 9 2023 at 9:06pm Copy Link
Janos Mathe Sorry, but I'm afraid that the price is correct.
After 10+ years without any price increase, the retail prices needed to be adjusted a bit with approx 10% in February.
If you check the Store page:
you may notice that the retail price of Hard Disk Sentinel Pro Family license is USD $59

BitsDuJour offers the 30% discount, so the discounted price of the package would be USD 41.30 (+tax if applicable) exactly as you can see.
This is lifetime license with free updates to all future versions, without any further costs.
