Shareware $29.95

Active SMART is a the hard disk drive monitoring and failure prediction software. It uses S.M.A.R.T. technology to monitor the health status of hard disk drives, prevents data loss and predicts possible drive fail. If a fault is detected, you are notified with various local alerting options or you can enable remote notifications via e-mail or other network mail applications with the drive ID and the time of the first fault. Active SMART monitors all important HDD parameters. You can track every S.M.A.R.T. parameter of your HDD, and get the information about every drive's attribute: attribute's value, it's threshold level and worst value for the attribute. Also it shows the information about HDD: serial number, drive logical information, current mode and other.
You can also download Active SMART SCSI edition with SCSI drives support. Active SMART SCSI edition supports hard drives on SCSI controllers and SCSI RAID arrays. Active SMART SCSI edition supports up to 4 IDE/ATA and up to 8 SCSI drives.
Active SMART for USB drives allows to check health status, temperature and many other vital parameters of hard drives connected through the USB port.
