If a disk failure condition is detected, WindowSMART can back up the data from that disk to another local disk or to a network share.
If a disk remains overheated for 3+ consecutive polling intervals, you can have the computer shut down to protect the disk.
WindowSMART 2013 supports most desktop and laptop disk controllers with no additional action on your part.
However, some controllers may require you to perform a driver upgrade to collect SMART data from them. Most external USB and FireWire enclosures are supported as well. Unfortunately, hardware RAID is not supported, and support for SAS controllers is currently very limited.
Additional features include running SMART self-tests (short, extended and conveyance) and exporting SMART results in a variety of formats (HTML, plain text, CSV and TSV), which makes it easy to share your results with colleagues or in an online forum, especially if you have questions.
WindowSMART 2013 runs as a full-featured trial for a full 30 days. After 30 days, you must purchase a license or the software will stop working.
The license key is emailed to you, in most cases within seconds of completing your order.
The install package contains both 32- and 64-bit versions of WindowSMART. The Microsoft .NET Framework 4 is required; the installer will tell you if it's missing.
