HDDLife for Notebooks is a real-time hard drive monitoring utility with alerts, malfunction protection and data loss prevention functions. This hard drive inspector is a proactive hard drive failure detection system which manages all of your hard drive risks.

HDDlife for Notebooks is the first program that takes into account all the peculiarities of the operation of a laptop computer. We should particularly mention that our program can detect different power schemes, so if one of them is applied, the program will not "wake up" the notebook. This helps to increase the performance of the notebook considerably without reducing the reliability of monitoring.

HDDlife for Notebooks has all the features of HDDlife Pro. It helps not only to monitor hard disk health and temperature, but also to adjust the noise level, view the amount of free space, and find out how long a disk has been working. Of course, our unique JustNow and AnywhereView technologies are applied in HDDlife for Notebooks. They make the monitoring of hard disks very simple, quick and convenient.

I downloaded this when it was still available. Soon after I downloaded it, it showed that my hard drive was dying. I could see it slowly deteriorate over the days. When I saw that it was getting really really bad I backed up all of my important files. I Finally I had to call DELL to have my hard drive replaced. If this program wasn't so expensive I'd definitely buy it. I'd recommend this software, but I won't since it's too expensive. I loved this program when I had it, it's a shame I don't have it right now. I really liked it.

By the way I have had to replace hard drive twice, try to avoid DELL if your buying a computer.

I installed this program succesfully, although HDDlife always shows my harddisks are in standby mode, even when they are really active. Due to this I miss lots of valueable information from HDDlife.
This program runs on a HP-Pavilion DV8000 with two Seagate ST98823AS harddisks.

Anyone?

To Snakestan (No. 23):
I have Everest and its related Aida32. You said that Everest gives temperature readings, but I can't find temperature readings in either one. Maybe they just give so much informatio that I missed it. Could you tell me where the temperature readings appear in either of these? Thanks.

#38 - It is not a trial version. It's a full version of the software tool with certain limitations (1) No free technical support; 2) No free upgrades to future versions; 3) Strictly non-commercial usage). To install it Read the README file and follow the simple steps. Make sure you have Internet access turned on and check your firewall settings. If you've done everything correctly you'll see in the 'Help-About' section that the program is registered to Giveawayoftheday.com. If it's not so, try close the program (completely - not just minimize it to the system tray) and run it again or even try to reboot your computer.

I was trying to figure out the "Work time" and wound up "activating" again. Did that change the installation to a free trial, if indeed it wasn't already? Would I need to uninstall and re-install before the deadline?

I agree with #35. These are supposed to be *free* programs, not free trials. Free trials are a dime-a-dozen out there. Does anyone know if the "free trial" is really only for 14 days as it says? Maybe the admins can tell us.

It is free Brian (#35). Did you run the file Activate.exe before running Setup.exe? If not, then it will be just a trial version.

Agree with #33, just checked, there is a checkbox which turns updates over internet on/off, that's why HDDLife phones home. You can turn that option off.

Hi Wanderer (#28). Yes it told you it phones home in a window during the installation. I guess you don't read that stuff. And also you can turn it off under File, Options, and HDD Statistics.

Maybe, flash-drive is more preferable... ;-)

P.S. HDDlife Pro tried to send private information from my port 1481.

There are several facts:
HDDlife Pro manages to perform such operations as
- IRP_MJ_CREATE (C:\Program Files\BinarySense\HDDlife\HDDlifePro.exe)
- FASTIO_QUERY_INFORMATION (C:\Program Files\BinarySense\HDDlife\HDDlifePro.exe)
- FASTIO_ACQUIRE_FOR_SECTION_SYNCHRONIZATION (C:\Program Files\BinarySense\HDDlife\HDDlifePro.exe)
- FASTIO_NETWORK_QUERY_OPEN (C:\WINDOWS\system32\MSIMTF.dll)
- IRP_MJ_CREATE (C:\WINDOWS\system32\MSIMTF.dll)
- FASTIO_ACQUIRE_FOR_SECTION_SYNCHRONIZATION (C:\WINDOWS\system32\MSIMTF.dll)

- IRP_MJ_CLOSE (C:\WINDOWS\system32\MSIMTF.dll)
- IRP_MJ_SET_INFORMATION (C:\Documents and Settings\Yaraslau\ntuser.dat.LOG)
A lot of reg-key are also used.
What should I do next?

NOT RECOMMENDED

I would advise caution on any of these "FREE" downloads. HDD in several of its versions "phones home" on a regular basis and for my system created a large number of security alerts per Zone Alarm all of which were considered HIGH RATED alerts. I read the license agreement and didn't see where it was supposed to serve info to the vendor about the temperature state of my hard drives. (None of their business). I had not authorized check for updates and I couldn't find out what info was being sent so I blocked it from any communications outside the box. About this time several other commercial applicatoins started acting funny and causing errors so I finally uninstalled the HDD products and the other apps started behaving again....

HDDLife for Notebooks whoops up on HDDscan.

I tried HDDscan and had problems with it always popping up temperature messages even when the temps were well within acceptable limits (anything over 45 degrees C, and my laptop normally runs at about 46-47 degrees C). It would generate popup about every 30 seconds, and these popups would stack up if the system was left unattended for any length of time, and took a long time to close individually...very annoying, so I had to keep it turned off most of the time so I could work. Worse, there was no way to make any adjustments (I confirmed this with their tech support).

HDDLife for Notebooks allows me to set the temperature range for warnings... exactly what I wanted! No more false alarms! The interface is easy to understand and there is a help file. I also like the intelligent system tray icon that provides quick results when hovered over with the pointer.

@Snakestan: Backups are recommended (I b/u to thumb drives daily, USB HD weekly, and CDs quarterly!), but backing up is no substitute for forewarning. Backups may save data, but won't save lost productivity due to unexpected down-time. I *want* some forewarning so I can schedule a repair to suit MY schedule.

Another great GOTD! Thanks!

Utter tosh, this company is making money for old rope(they need to give it away to try and get a user base). Inaccurate hard life predictions...thats all they offer. You can get temp readings using the excellent Everest Home Edition and its also free but packed with so much more useful info. The only reason to down load this is if you like shiny temperature readings in you task bar.
Every one should back up their stuff anyway, this prog only gives you a false sense of security, if it works then one day it might give you a warning and then youll have to back up anyway!

This is actually a great piece of software. I have used the lite version of this before and was impressed, though dismayed by the price.

On a more personal note, I believe this is a great piece of software, and while I am glad many of you take the opportunity to show opensource and freeware alternatives, I am glad for the chance to acquire commercial pieces of software for free without having to resort to "other" measures.

I have to post this message before, but...
As usual, there are several alternative software.
I.e.
1) Activesmart - shareware
2) Hard Drive Inspector - shareware
3) Hard Drive Indicator - freeware (http://optionalreaction.com/software/hdi)
4) Disc Checkup - free for personal use (http://www.passmark.com/)
5) HDD Scan - freeware (http://hddguru.com/). Powerful enough!

P.S. E-mail Subscription. I did it, but nothing comes.
Why?.. :-(

Thank you GotD-team for the wonderful products you bring us. I wonder when my PC is fulled-up with all these nice gadgets it is so hard to choose and so little time to decide. Anyway I have a question; I installed on my laptop the previous free edition of HDDlife. Now, do I have to uninstall this program before I install HDDlife for Notebooks or could I just "upgrade" this program over the the previous version?
thanks again.

Excellent accompaniment to the PC's version. Since using HDD Pro, I've become more aware of system degredation due to environmental factors such as heat, and have taken steps to ensure my system doesn't overheat. Ideally I need an air conditioning system in my study, (lol) as it can get really warm if I don't open a window. This software will be brilliant for the lap top. Thank you so much

On my particular system (winxp home sp2 / 1.7ghz / 1.5 gig mem) the used system resources are minimal. Less than 1% cpu and only 1.5mb memory. If you're getting taxed more you may have a memory leak, reinstall?

Program is simple, does what it says. Interface is clean and partially customizable, nice.
