DriveSitter hard drive analisys tool for IDE hard disk drives
based upon modern S.M.A.R.T. technology. This utility does provide numerous
details that are next to impossible to find without either taking the computer
apart or using a third party application software (like this one), however I
haven't seen a program get this specific before (and I am a PC technician, so I
use programs like these on a regular basis).
I tested this software out on several good and bad hard drives that I just
happened to have lying around and it was able to tell me (for the most part)
what was wrong (if anything) with the HDD. It provided details that were
extremely helpful in the analysis of HDD usage on my primary PC, and lets you
run several disk test directly to your hard drive from this application.
I wasn't wow'd by the program, however it did everything it said it would do
plus a little more. I don't know, as a technician, that I would find this
program extremely useful, but on occasion I could see where this program could
come in quite handy.
