Do NOT update it to 2.22. I'm unsure why I did it. Now I'm stuck with the 14-day trial. =( At least I know the state of my older drive prior.

For Fubar #103: Gee, I'm really sorry. 'polished' was not meant to be taken 'literally' ('in that sense'). I just missed the " '' " before clicking Submit (please forgive me; 'sir' isn't it ?). So I'll 'submit' this: You keep reading your Google, okay. I don't. Never said anything about it, never will. Don't 'put words in my mouth'. I deal with tech sites, manufacturers and sources.

If you are who 'you' think you are, you should know there is & always will be more than one field of thought to almost every issue, especially computing. Gee, 'I' don't remember dumping on you when not agreeing with any of your 'comments' (sorry..., until now). So show a little respect for other people, okay? You've lost mine now. Oh, ...have a nice day.

I have been using this program since it was on GAOTD a while ago. Back then it was version 2.0 and I think it is very useful. I got the email about this 2 days late so I missed out this time around, but 2.0 works for now and I am happy with it. My only request is that you start getting more tools like these and Frigate 3 here more often. This software is very useful in warning you if your drive is about to die. Be sure to adjust the temperature warning high enough that it is not constantly annoying you. Also, I found the tray icon is black, but that may be tied to using the Royale Noir theme in Windows XP. Overall, very nice!

#88, almost everything you said is incorrect. Drives aren't stressed by use. The Google study was based on cooling server drives with refrigeration equipment, which isn't applicable to home users. There are all sorts of temperature-related issues other than bearings. SMART simply collects statistics. The Google study simply indicated that drives generally don't show gradual degradation. I'm not going to read it again; it's been some time since I read it but as I recall, if a drive gave any indication at all, a single serious error increased the probability that the drive would fail within a relatively short time. If the drive survived for a relatively long time after the error, then it was probably going to have a typical lifespan. So, SMART data trends generally aren't that useful, but SMART does report the serious errors, which are useful. As for rewriting the data on the drive, some drives do that automatically during idle time, and in any case you can use software to do that. Drifting of magnetic domains is a bigger issue than demagnetization. If you're going to reformat a drive for reliability purposes, do a low-level format. Drives aren't "polished and worn away". The heads generally don't contact the disc surfaces, except when the drive is spun down. In that case, they generally contact landing zones. The disc surfaces are lubricated.

There are numerous negative comments from people who haven't bothered to read the help file, checked the options, or clicked on the little "?" button that's available on every window (although, in a somewhat nonstandard location for a Windows application). The settings for alarms and critical temperatures can be changed. SMART thresholds are set by the drive manufacturers, not the program. The way SATA drives measure temperature, the temperature will fluctuate rapidly as use changes (several people's comments indicate they don't expect this). #97, a room temp in the 70's and an SATA drive internal temp around 129 (when running and in use) is pretty common. Your non-ATA drives may measure temperatures differently. For some users experiencing problems with some drives, there's an option to skip drives that report wrong SMART data.

Well the application is okay.. But i have some doubts.. When i started th programme, it said there are 2 drives in my pc and bot are working fine.. After 5 minutes i again run the programme and it said, one of my drive miss some critical data and need replacement! I restarted my pc & again started the programmme.. then it said both drives are working fine! why is this discrepancy?

Man what a joke says my Maxtor drive is 129 degrees, is really around 70, this would be all right if I could make the thing shut up about the bad status. Must be because its SATA. The previous free version did the same. All other non-SATA drives report correctly. It would be great if it worked right. But all in all this is a great site, thanks for all the other freebies that do work right!

I will agree completely with those who claim that SMART is NOT reliable at all. In fact, some/many tech industries are wishing it was either never instituted or should be removed altogether cause it does cause many problems it should never have reported.
And yes...to much testing (especially from utils that are NOT well written and tested) WILL and DOES stress componants.
Now, stressing (within carefully defined limits, parameters and under specific control conditions) is fine, indeed required. One condition which is highly recommended is new hardware burn in (when there is nothing to lose, such as important/needed data loss) testing. NOT 6 months or 2 years or 5 years later. Stress testing at these points in time is just foolhardy, even if you have backed up.
As for temperatures. Recent test results (i'm talking not more than a few months ago), have confirmed that a cool running hard drive will last LESS then a slightly 'over temperature' running unit. And the reasons are quite simple. At a warmer temp, all componants are more uniform in temp. When componants are not warm enough the spaces have not yet come to design tolerance. In otherwards a certain degree of 'heat' is required for componants to 'naturally' expand. If they don't there is excess play and things move and wobble around too much.
This is a proven fact. Your car engines are a prime example. Another one is in the (world wide) bearings industry. Yes ordinary bearings. The industry standard a number of years ago was to make bearing and such, basically 'tight'. After decades of data, they found that manufacturing bearings just a 'shy' bit more loose, their lifespan deramatically INCREASED. Why? Because the componants expanded with heat. As a result, bearings displayed early marginal premature wear. That marginal wear was what was causing bearings to wear out, because the finished surfaces were now not smooth and polished anymore. Increasing metal qualities and alloys did not work nearly as well as making new bearings with more clearances. The trick? When the materials were cool or cold, it took little time to warm them up to proper temps, the materials then expanded to close those gaps BUT NOT EXCESSIVELY, as in the past. But when bearings were made tight before, they were actually generating extreme pressures against their parts, forcing undesigned wear.

As in the hard-drive industry, they have (as mentioned earlier) recently realized that cooler is NOT essentially better.
There are many other reasons way a little warmer is ok or better, but this is already too long.

The point is....almost all good techs and industries basically say SMART is not that 'smart' at all.
Doing these tests and stresses on dependant or older drives is foolish and dangerous, especially with 'everyday programs'. Some of these guys may be computer programmers 'But They are Not Harware Engineers or Manufacturers', period.

One of the best drive testing and recovery outfits out there is Diskeeper amoung others, and even they claim SMART as 'not too smart', in fact, kind of dumb.

Lastly. The absolute BEST method of ensuring & insuring your hard drives safety and optimal use and lifespan is to:

BACK-UP up your drive's entire data....(like a disk-image)
...are you ready ?
Delete or reformat the drive...
then restore it back, on purpose.

Why?

A) you have a super safe back-up, yes.
B) data very slowly currupts all on it's own, naturally over time
Remember, those drive disks are being constantly polished away as they spin around at thousands of RPM all day/year long. That data is also magenetically imposed on the disk...and ALL magnetic data loses it's 'grip' over time, ALL.
C)By removing and then re-installing (re-writing) that data, now fully 'encodes' it back as brand new again. Not like the 50 million times re-read and 'buffed/scrubbed/wearing away/weakening' original data.
That is why hard-drives and data loss occur, especially the older the drive gets.
Give an old drive 'new life' and 'safety' by following that method and you WILL have longer lasting drives and data.

What we all should be looking for are utils that can read/copy and restore master boot records on our drives, not these utils that do little other than instill worry or false security.

Sorry for the long winded essay.

BK

There seems to be a lot of confusion about this product. First, the potential spyware issue--we'll have to wait for more information. Usually, these are false positives. I use security software from several manufacturers. None have reported any problems; nothing unusual is being reported by my firewall, which actually does far more checking and is far more secure than most anti-spyware apps.

SMART statistics are just potentially useful information. They vary over time, and the thresholds are set by the drive manufacturers. To those who are confused by the SMART information--I think the Help file is very good, and the program gives detailed descriptions both in tooltips and when you expand lines (by clicking them) in the SMART details. If you bring up Options and go through them by first clicking entries in the left pane, you can change many of the warnings, whether the program runs at Windows start up, etc. This program is very good at displaying long-term trends in the SMART statistics, which is very helpful. For those who want the raw data, if you read the simple and very clear Help file you would see that the Report gives that information.

To those who say the program sucks because it doesn't work correctly with your drives--there are thousands and thousands of drive models. The SMART interface isn't standard, and varies widely among manufacturers and models. Instead of just whining, why not help the developers by stating (precisely) which drive models you have, so that they can fix the handling for those models?

I don't know whether GOTD will edit this out, but I hope that they'll leave it; I believe this site will be most successful if comments are honest and accurate, whether they are positive or negative. To those who keep claiming that MultiStage Recovery is great, perhaps it works for you. More likely, you haven't compared it to other recovery software. Myself, and others who actually tested it, such as BladedThoth, had very, very serious problems with it. To not know the difference between files and folders, or even whether a file currently exists, or is deleted, is very basic stuff. And then there were those who thought it was great because it found numerous years-old directory entries for unrecoverable deleted files, but who never actually checked to see whether those files could be successfully recovered (most recovery software makes some attempt to filter out unrecoverable entries). My advice to software developers (or hardware manufacturers, etc.) is to first research the market. If you can develop a product that's better and/or cheaper than the competition, or if you can out-market your competitors, then perhaps it's worth a shot. If you're never going to catch up to your competitors, which I think is the case for MultiStage Recovery, then spend your development and marketing efforts on other products (and they do have other products). Perhaps I should come out with some software, I think I'll call it Ultimate Windows Fixer-Upper, and claim that it speeds up and optimizes your Windows installation, Registry, and Internet connection, when it actually does nothing. And, I think I'll have it intentionally crash on about 10% of installation attempts. I'll claim that the normal selling price is $74.99. I'll bet such a product would receive at least a 90% thumbs-up here, from people who never tested it, people who installed it and simply believed that it did what it said, and in spite of negative comments from those who couldn't install it (who would receive insults from those who thought the product was great, especially since they were getting a $75 product for free).

Ok, so I downloaded this program to see what the S.M.A.R.T. system tells me, already knowing from the S.M.A.R.T. monitoring ASUS motherboard software that I have a disk that qualifies as toast, even though it is still working (too many reallocation errors). Start it up. Looks good.... WHAT'S THAT DAMN NOISE??? Yes, it's an entertaining air raid siren. We'll just turn it off in the options, no big deal. Tunnel deep into the bowels of the arcane menu system: oh! there's two places to turn this infernal thing off. No problem. But the siren doesn't stop. OK, I'll shut down the program and restart with the new options.... THAT DAMN SIREN AGAIN!!!!! I already know the hard drive is supposed to be toast, I don't require a defibrillator to tell me that. Unfortunately, the siren won't stay turned off. As Strong Bad would say, "DELETED!!!"

I just downloaded and installed the latest version of Hard Drive Inspector to see if the developers had corrected the problems I experienced with the previous version. That version reported the hard drive which came with my PC had only been in use for 31 days versus the reality of over 3 years. The new "improved" v2.2 reports the same hard drive has only been in use for 21 days instead of over 3 years.

The one minor improvement I noticed is v2.2 is capable of showing drive temperatures using 3 digits. Previously, 102 degrees F was shown as 12 in the system tray; the latest version shows it as 102. Unfortunately, HDI still reports temperatures which differ from System Information for Windows and similar programs by several degrees. I removed HDI since I have no confidence in a program which can't differentiate between a 3+ year-old hard drive and a 3 week-old one.

I hate to disappoint the many resident dullards who hold the peculiar (and irrational) notion one should never criticize software if it's free. Why a program which displays obviously inaccurate information or has other problems should inexplicably remain immune from critical commentary just because it's available at no cost for 24 hours eludes me. Also, contrary to the "we must express eternal gratitude to GOTD" crowd, the folks at GOTD are running a business, not operating a charity.

I appreciate the effort of GOTD and have downloaded three of the freebies. The Panorama Maker and MultiStage Recovery seem good software for the money.

However, those giveaways that require database updates to stay current seem questionable. For example Advanced Windows Care Pro, which I assume needs updates regularly, will not allow the database updates. This make is out of date rather quickly and results in no more than demo software unless I am missing something.

What a difference in opinion on this one. Bladedthoth, thanks for your reviews. They give a level of professionalism to these offerings. Unfortunately I could not get this particular program to fully work. It recognized my 2 ATA drives and gave consistent data to past programs of this type. However, it would not recognize my 2 SATA drives except to give their basic manufactured names and sizes. Too bad as I was looking for a good program to monitor things and had hopes for this one.

you can not relie on such software. Inside my PC I have 3 SATA-2 drives. 2 x 320 GB Western Digital and 1 Seagate SATA-2 320 GB. When testing the WD drives are at 100%. But my SEagate drive (1 month old) givs a WARNING about the "seek error rate" and "spinup time"

When I test the Seagate drive with "SeaToolsForWindows" it shows that everything is at a 100% normal value.

To get the best test results, always use the manufactor of the drive's tools for this. Otherwise you will often end up with results that are wrong!
