Free, downloadable software application developed by Acronis to monitor server, workstation and PC hard disk drives.
There are three unavoidable certainties in life: Death, Taxes and Hard Disk Drive Failures.
Acronis does not have a solution for the first; however, we can make sure that your financial records, photos, videos and other items of sentimental or monetary value are protected so that you can cherish the memories and pay your taxes on time!
Acronis Drive Monitor is a free tool that helps monitor your hard drive, and prevent data loss.
Acronis Drive Monitor can help predict when a hard drive is about to fail, so you can backup your data before disaster strikes. When Acronis Drive Monitor identifies a problem, it generates an email or onscreen alert describing what happened. It then guides you through the steps you need to take to remedy the issue. A color coded summary and weekly reports provide an overview of the disk's health at a glance.
Users of the latest versions of Acronis True Image Home 2012 and Acronis Backup and Security 2011 PC backup and recovery software can take advantage of Acronis Drive Monitor's ability to trigger an immediate, automated backup if any disk shows signs of imminent failure.
Works on any Windows PC, workstation or server.
Shows the electromechanical health of all your drives in one report.
Flags events that may indicate that data is in danger so you can back it up.
Scripting allows you to monitor RAID controllers not using S.M.A.R.T. monitoring technology. An Acronis forum acts as a clearinghouse for users to share scripts.
An Acronis forum, a knowledge base with dozens of articles and a built-in help function are available for this easy-to-use software application.
Sends an email and displays a message on the Windows taskbar when it uncovers a disk-related problem.
S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology) is a disk monitoring technology which can predict many disk failures. This technology is implemented on the most modern hard drives.
Most likely, S.M.A.R.T. is internally supported on your drive. However, in some cases Acronis Drive Monitor may be not able to read S.M.A.R.T. parameters. The reason for such behavior is because many I/O controllers and software drivers either do not support transferring of S.M.A.R.T. information from the attached drives, or require driver-specific implementation of accessing the S.M.A.R.T. interface, which may be not yet implemented in Acronis Drive Monitor.
With the first version of Acronis Drive Monitor, the level of support may be described as following:
Whenever Acronis Drive Monitor is not able to read S.M.A.R.T. parameters on a drive, a link to report unsupported hardware appears in the program. Accessing this link will automatically report unsupported hardware to Acronis, anonymously sending hardware IDs of unsupported hardware to the Acronis website.
Acronis uses information submitted through these reports to increase hardware support in upcoming Acronis Drive Monitor updates, and support for the most popular hardware will be added first.
In certain cases, it may possible to enable monitoring in Acronis Drive Monitor, even if the S.M.A.R.T. interface is initially unavailable.
To enable support, try the following:
