Hard Disk Temperature Monitor

Posted onby admin

Hard Disk Sentinel monitors hard disk drive / HDD status including health, temperature and all S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology) values for all hard disks. Also it measures the disk transfer speed in real time which can be used as a benchmark or to detect possible hard disk failures, performance degradations. Hard disk drive monitoring: health and temperature information, alerts and limited set of hard disk tests available to diagnose hard disk drive issues.

Hard Disk Sentinel Revision History

Hard Disk Temperature Monitor

Hard Disk Sentinel 5.20 (23/3/2018)


Improvements and new features:

Hard Disk Temperature Monitor
  • added option to monitor NAS boxes, hard disks used with Network Attached Storage devices
    (see How to: monitor Network Attached Storage (NAS) status )
  • added Configuration -> Advanced Options -> Monitor Windows Event Log for problems related to disks and storage subsystem. By this option, Hard Disk Sentinel Pro detects if Windows saves errors/warnings to SYSTEM event log and report recent problems detected while Hard Disk Sentinel is running/monitoring and use them in calculation of health to show issues, degradations (registered Pro version)
  • display if Configuration -> Disk Control -> Disable detection of USB and SCSI drives checked and blocking detection
  • added SSD features (Read Zeroes After Trim) and security features (Sanitize, Overwrite, Crypto scramble, Block erase etc.) to Information page and reports
  • detection and reporting new ATA standards and new ATA / Serial ATA features on Information page: Device sleep (DevSleep), Service interrupt, Device encrypts all data, IDLE IMMEDIATE, Nominal form factor, NCQ Streaming and autosense, Rebuild assist, Hybrid information
  • display TRIM status in addition to complete health / temperature / status for NVMe / M.2 SSDs
  • displaying custom configured temperature thresholds on Temperature page
  • displaying lifetime writes of hard disks on main overview page (if supported, for example new Seagate and WD Black drives)
  • improved WRITE testing (Surface test -> Write test, Write+Read, Reinitialise disk surface) to prevent 'access denied' error
  • updated Help to cover new functions, features
  • completely redesigned tray icon handling: better sort/move/order tray icons under Windows 7, 8.1, 10
  • improved disk surface test performance with Intel, LSI, Dell SAS RAID controllers and SAS HBAs
  • improved disk surface test performance with hard disks formatted with 520 / 528 bytes/sector
  • improved text description on various errors/problems

Hard Drive Temperature Monitor Windows 10

Improved hardware support:

  • detection of NVMe SSD status when Intel RAID configured: detect complete status of standalone NVMe SSDs and NVMe SSDs used as RAID.
    displaying Highest possible transfer rate and Negotiated transfer rate for NVMe SSDs
  • added support of integrated AMD RAID controller on motherboards with Ryzen CPUs: detection complete hard disk / SSD information, health, temperature, self-monitoring data of SATA drives managed in RAID configurations
  • added support for ATTO RAID Rxxx controllers: detection complete hard disk / SSD information, health, temperature, self-monitoring data of SATA drives managed in RAID configurations. Detect SAS drives, their status and error counters when RAID configuration used
    displaying RAID controller temperature for ATTO RAID controllers
  • added detection of complete disk status when ASMEDIA ASM1352R external USB RAID controller used: detection of complete status when RAID 0 / RAID 1 / LARGE / JBOD confiuration used
  • added support of RaidSonic ICY BOX IB-RD2253-U31, Oyen Digital Minipro RAID USB 3.1 enclosure
  • added support of Intel(R) Integrated RAID Module RMT3PB080: detection complete hard disk / SSD information, health, temperature, self-monitoring data of SATA/SAS drives managed in RAID configurations.
  • added support of ASMEDIA ASM109x RAID controllers with proper firmware: detection complete hard disk / SSD information, health, temperature, self-monitoring data of SATA drives managed in RAID0, RAID1, SPAN/large configurations
  • improved detection of Intel onboard RAID controller and drive status (previously some RAID disks could be missing, especially with multiple arrays and newer Intel RST drivers)
  • improved industrial SD card detection, added support of industrial SD cards with newer firmware versions
  • added support of Western Digital WD SSDs
  • improved detection of FASTDISK SSD
