What is DriveDx?
DriveDx is advanced drive health diagnostic and monitoring utility. Unlike most drive utilities, DriveDx does not only monitor the drive’s built-in S.M.A.R.T. status, but also analyzes the changes of all drive health indicators that are closely related to HDD or SSD failures (like the pending bad sectors, reallocated bad sectors, uncorrectable bad sectors, SSD wear out / endurance, and more) and alerts the user immediately if anything goes wrong. Our drive health diagnostics algorithms are based on the recent researches in this field. The application provides access to all sufficient drive diagnostic data to satisfy any system administrator. DriveDx is the first utility of its kind to have a real user-friendly Mac-style interface.
Key features: • support of modern HDDs and SSDs • real-time SSD/HDD health status monitoring • pre-failure state early detection - DriveDx supports 3 drive health statuses: Ok, Failing (pre-failure) and Failed. (Most of drive utilities support only 'Ok' and 'Failed') • drive failure prediction based on health indicators that are closely related to HDD or SSD failures • multi-tier warning system that will inform the user about deviations from the normal state of drive attributes • drive overall health rating • drive overall performance rating (if drive supports this subset of indicators) • SSD lifetime left indicator • support of drive short and full (extended) self-tests • save drive(s) health report to file • automatic drive health reports by email (automatic email reports) • human-readable drive health indicators (attributes) representation • different routines for SSD and HDD health evaluation • drive temperature monitoring • history-based drive health evaluation • S.M.A.R.T. error log • Growl notifications • user friendly and intuitive UI • Retina displays support

Said about DriveDx as an alternative
Incredibly in-depth statistics on disk status laid out well, plainly explained with an easy to use interface. I've always got the information I've wanted with it without issues or confusion.
I frequently use CrystalDiskInfo on my PCs and have started trying out similar utilities for the Mac. DriveX is the first I've tried. Its format is clear and concise It'sexplanations in popup boxes are very useful.

Very dissapointed with this now as I am unable to test my external drives. I installed to additional S.M.A.R.T plugin but it didnt work, the program asked me to uninstall the plugin and try to reinstall. There is no uninstaller for the plugin. There is a terminal code provided when you go to their website, the terminal response was ' there is no such directory' Not happy to have to uninstall using their terminal code. The plugin is still installed and there is no response from the support email i have written. Its a shame as it a god program., if it worked on all drives, as it is, it's not worth buying the licence, especially when there is no support.
