S.M.A.R.T. stands for Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology. S.M.A.R.T. technology was developed by a number of major hard disk drive manufacturers to increase the reliability of hard 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.

Through the SMART system, hard disk drives incorporate a suite of advanced diagnostics that monitor the internal operations of a drive and provide an early warning for many types of potential problems. When a potential problem is detected, the hard drive can be repaired or replaced before any data is lost or damaged.

One of the leading tools to monitor the S.M.A.R.T. status is ActiveSMART, by Ariolic Software, Ltd.

Active SMART is a software that utilizes S.M.A.R.T. technology to monitor your hard drive health status and disk temperature, predict possible drive fail and prevent data loss. Using your personal notification settings, Active SMART lets you know about a potential disk health problem before you lose valuable data.
In addition, it offers many useful tools and features; for example; Hard drive test, disk space usage tool, secure file shredder and more for ATA, SATA, SSD, NVMe and USB hard drives

Find out what happen to your hard drives. In real time.

Normally, the hard disk errors happen unexpectedly. How much would the hard disk information loss cost you? Loss of your documents, or your wedding photos or your favorite music?

How do you know if your hard disk drive is fit and healthy or is your hard drive is slow and the disk space is low?

Install ActiveSMART and it will take care about your hard drives and all your data on your disk. It checks the hard drive health and status, runs background diagnostic, monitors disk temperature, checks your free and used disk space and many more.

And it will immediately warns you about any problem with your hard disks. Even potential problems, because it uses special algorithms to estimate failures.

Easy trace the disk space usage on your PC/notebook with disk space analyzer

Another powerful feature of ActiveSMART – Disk Space Usage Analyzer. It quickly scans the hard drive and show a graphical overview of disk space usage, using TreeMap technology. Now you can see how files and folders use the disk space and which of them are space wasters.

Easily find out which files and directories using up all your hard drive space. Discover where all your disk space is going with built in folder size utility.

Automatic disk check-up and hdd temperature monitor

Active SMART supports automatic disk check-up on system loading, constant tracking of the disks state with an interval varying from 1 minute to 99 hours, as well as performing a quick scan of the disks, in order to save the resources of the weaker machines.

Emergency system shutdown in case of hard drive overheating

Active SMART will suspend (using Hibernate mode) your PC automatically if the hard drive becomes too hot. This saves your important data and prevents the hard drive possible failure.

Other features included:

Secure file shredder using military grade algorithms allows deleting files and folders without any traces. See at a glance Performance, Health, Temperature and Free Space of all your hard drives.

Check the hard drive age.

Check amount of bad and reallocated blocks on the hard drives.

See if the disk has unstable sectors that going to fail.

S.M.A.R.T. attributes and hard drive temperature lifetime chart.

Email notifications about hard drive status and more features.

New Features (Changelog):

https://www.ariolic.com/activesmart/release-notes/

Added support for NVMe SSD HDDs (Samsung SSD 970 EVO, WD Black NVMe SSD, Intel Optane SSD and others)
UI updated for different desktop font scaling (150%)
Fixed licensing issue
Many small, but important fixes

How the program works?

If ActiveSMART is not installed on the user PC/laptop, then the user doesn’t receive any hard drive status information. Any warning or alerts from S.M.A.R.T. of the hard drives will be ignored.

If ActiveSMART is installed, it retrieves all vital S.M.A.R.T. information from hard drives, analyzes it and calculates failure possibilities using special algorithms. The user will be notified about any potential disk emergency situation immediately.

Key Features:

HARD DRIVE HEALTH CHECK

ActiveSMART not only the harddrive tester, but constantly monitors the disk status using S.M.A.R.T. system and various diagnostic algorithms. Test your HDD now.

DISK SPACE MONITOR

Find out what’s using up all your hard drive space in just one click. Built-it disk audit tool shows all files and folders and disk space they are using. Powerful folder size utility built in. Monitoring the hard drive space is never been so easy.

SECURE FILE DELETE TOOL

Built-in file and folders shredder tool wipes files and folders permanently using special, industry grade file shredding algorithms. ActiveSMART enables you to securely erase your sensitive data.

DISK TEMPERATURE MONITOR

Prevent your hard drives overheating using built-in Hard Drive Temperature Monitor. Flexible disk temperature alarms, temperature history and current disk temperature included.

OPTIMIZED FOR LAPTOPS

ActiveSMART is carefully optimized to use as low as possible resources on laptops. Special energy saving mode is automatically activated when notebook is running on battery.

SUPPORT FOR SATA, SSD, NVMe and NAND drives

ActiveSMART supports wide range of internal and external hard drives – internal and external ATA and SATA drives, Solid State Drives (SSD), NVM Express (NVMe) and NAND drives connected internally or via USB.

To check the disk S.M.A.R.T. status run Active SMART and open the SMART Information page. You can see the SMART status on the bottom of the program window, in a green frame. Active SMART shows various information about the hard drive; for example; its SMART status, disk SMART attributes, hard drive temperature, estimated drive lifetime, disk health status and many other. It does not require any special technical knowledge and has nice looking graphical user interface. When Active SMART detects a potential problem, the drive can be repaired or replaced before any data is lost or damaged.

S.M.A.R.T. attributes

The S.M.A.R.T. attributes are specific properties (parameters) of various parts of a hard drive. S.M.A.R.T. uses attributes to monitor the disk condition and to analyze its reliability (e.g.: the “Temperature” attribute indicates the temperature of the hard disk, the “Power-On Hours” attribute indicates the count of hours in a power-on state, etc.) Various manufacturers may use different sets of attributes.

SSD Program Fail Count Attribute information:

Only for SSD drives. Total number of Flash program (firmware) operation failures since the hard drive was manufactured.

Load-in Time Attribute information

Total time of loading on the magnetic heads actuator. This attribute indicates total time in which the drive was under load (on the assumption that the magnetic heads were in operating mode and out of the parking area).

Hard drive temperature monitor

The problem of overheating is a vital problem for most modern HDDs, since they are constantly evolving and their capacity and speed are improving. Not everyone knows that when the temperature of the hard disk rises higher than 50-60 degrees centigrade, its reliability decreases significantly and that a fatal failure as well as total data loss may occur. When the hdd temperature exceeds safe condition ActiveSMART notifies you about that. In addition; you can also check how the hard drive temperature changes over the time.

Disk Space Analyzer:

The files on your hard drive take up more and more space. And soon, all your folders are full of data – movies, music, mp3 files, podcasts and so on. To check folder sizes on your hard drive you need only few clicks – start ActiveSMART, open Disk Space Usage Analyzer tab and choose the disk to scan for all files and folders. The program creates a special picture which has a graphical preview of your disk or folder with all files and folders and space they occupy. This is easily done using the Tree Map technology

Conclusion:

The well-known Active SMART software is of great help for you if you are not sure in your hard drive and need software for disk failure prediction. Active SMART is an industry leading S.M.A.R.T. diagnostic and failure prediction software for hard drives. Its main goal is timely detecting and anticipating any problems, occurring with the hard disk, before the danger of the data loss appears.
