I love this app. It is lightweight, unobtrusive, information rich, and can be a big money-saver. It notified me of a drive having a small percentage of errors. No other utility I know will do this (as well as disk temperatures, etc.) Because I was warned I updated my backup of the disk (was not my boot or primary disk) and it failed soon after.

My system was acting up and Hard Disk Sentinel showed very clearly that the Disk Drive was ready to go in 30 days. I don't believe the drive was the source of my trouble, but I AM glad that I found out before I lost data.

CrystalDiskInfo stopped enumerating my HDDs after a certain amount - HDS however works like a treat!

This is by far the most comprehensive tool i've come across for testing lots of hard drives, destructively or not. Keeping tabs of the ones I buy over time, and decommissioning ones that are obviously failing before they become truly trouble. There isn't anything else like it.
