HDD Observer is a powerful tool created to help you keep a close eye on the health status of your hard disks. By being able to forecast any potential hard disk problem you can also react in proper time and take measures in order to protect your precious data.

HDD Observer provides accurate real-time monitoring of your hard disk performance and health status, checking and displaying vital parameters such as its temperature or the S.M.A.R.T data attributes. Once the temperature or any other monitored parameter of your hard disk reaches a critical value, various alerts will be triggered, letting you know about the issue. These critical values can be customized by the users by accessing the program’s options.

I like a lot about this tool the fact that it represents a lightweight system maintenance solution, as it offers more than just monitoring features for the health status of your hard disk. It offers some other system optimization tools: a disk cleaner, disk defragmenter, registry cleaner and registry defragmentation utility.

In conclusion, HDD Observer is a neat and handy tool that can eventually mitigate the risk of losing important data. Since it offers additional system maintenance tools, its price is completely justified and makes it get my recommendation.
