Active SMART – the S.M.A.R.T. disk analyzer
Hard disk is probably the most important component of every computer. It’s the first and the main storage choice for the majority of computer users, providing large amounts of disk space at low cost. It also affects the overall performance of the system, how fast and how stable it is – especially if you are low on RAM, since your computer will use more virtual memory then. Besides, hard disks often limit the performance of the whole system because they are the slowest internal computer components.
So hard disk’s performance is a rather critical parameter – one you’d probably want to watch, or at least to check on from time to time. To do this, you can use disk analyzer software.
Active SMART is a unique disk analyzer. It monitors the drive for everything that might seem out of the ordinary, documents it, and analyzes the data. If it sees something that indicates a problem, it is capable of notifying the user (or system administrator) in a variety of ways – popup messages, network messages and even email messages.

Disk analyzer utilities can measure the drive’s performance, scan the disks for errors, check disks’ health status, securely erase all data and much more. Better yet, they can get the maximum out of your hard drive performance and even make your Windows run smoother and faster by optimizing its file system.
Active SMART utilizes S.M.A.R.T. technology (Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology) to access a drive’s internal diagnostics. It analyzes disk status, compares it with constants that have been predefined at the factory, tracks the disk temperature changes, logs all changes if desired, and much more. Active SMART can predict and warn against many types of problems with the hard drive(s) connected to your system.
