HDD Observer is a powerful tool created to help you keep a close eye on the health status of your hard disks. By being able to forecast any potential hard disk problem you can also react in proper time and take measures in order to protect your precious data.

HDD Observer provides accurate real-time monitoring of your hard disk performance and health status, checking and displaying vital parameters such as its temperature or the S.M.A.R.T data attributes.
Once the temperature or any other monitored parameter of your hard disk reaches a critical value, various alerts will be triggered, letting you know about the issue. These critical values can be customized by the users by accessing the program’s options.

I like a lot about this tool the fact that it represents a lightweight system maintenance solution, as it offers more than just monitoring features for the health status of your hard disk. It offers some other system optimization tools: a disk cleaner, disk defragmenter, registry cleaner and registry defragmentation utility.

In conclusion, HDD Observer is a neat and handy tool that can eventually mitigate the risk of losing important data. Since it offers additional system maintenance tools, its price is completely justified and makes it get my recommendation.

Publisher's description

HDD Observer is a monitoring and repairing tool for your hard drives.
HDD Observer can detect a lot of hard drives troubles and give a solution for them:
- Monitor hard drives health, performance and temperature
- Monitor hard drives activity and show it in a system tray icon
- Check file system fragmentation and registry fragmentation
- Defragment file system and registry
- Automatically and real-time find and remove un-needed files and registry values
- Windows XP/2003/Vista compatible
- Low memory usage
HDD Observer is not only a high technologic product - it is one of the most intelligent soft for hard drives monitoring. And this is because it has some unique technologies implemented by us especially for this program. One of them is SmartBehavior - a very complex behavior technology implemented in monitoring tools.
For example, if HDD temperature is near its critical value then HDD Observer begins to check it more frequently to exactly detect the time when the temperature will reach it's critical value. Evident - if critical value is reached, then HDD Observer will check HDDs with a lower frequency to release any system resources.
Another interesting feature is 'System Fragmentation Monitoring':
HDD Observer begins fragmentation check only when computer is idle, and all system resources are free.
In this case HDD Observer will check for fragmentation until will finish or the user will need any system resources. After check it informs the user about fragmentation level and can even defragment HD using its build-in defragmentation tools.
These and many other features make HDD Observer the most advanced HDD troubles monitoring and repairing program.
