The ultimate health monitoring tool for your hard disks

Data loss is a nuisance. Total hard disk failure is a catastrophe. Ashampoo HDD Control 3 provides an early warning system against impending failure and gives users time to backup and store important data before the crash.

Ashampoo HDD Control 3 comes with a well-structured and clear user interface. All relevant information is bundled on the start screen and provides extensive data on the health status of all available hard disk drives.

The new history view helps predict future developments and allows users to take precautionary action. Users can view single parameters such as drive temperature, e.g. to track down heat issues. The program displays on-screen notifications for irregularities and can notify users through email, if desired.

"Still having problems with v1.01"

Since Ashampoo gave me a 'great' special price offer, I decided to purchase the new 1.01 version (I tested Trial 1.00 version & had problems with it.) and give them the 'benefit of the doubt' & believed they had fixed the problems I had encountered in version 1.00. Shame on me, shame on them; the problems were still there.

1. Initial 'run' of the program, I got none of my SATA hard drives showing in the program!

2. After doing a 'manual' Rescan of the HDs, I 'sometimes' got my SATA hard drives to show in the program; but... it refused to continually 'monitor' my SATA drives.

3. A reboot of system put me back to #1. and having to repeat #2. again... not a good thing.

It's unfortunate this program is responding this way on my system, while a FREEWARE program is having no problems monitoring ALL of my hard drives. And... the FREEWARE program is updated fairly frequently by the author.

Due to continual problems with this program, I have requested a REFUND of my purchase price & removed the program from my system. Ashampoo is starting to give themselves a 'bad name' because of this & I think it is an indication they are trying to 'rush' a program to market, instead of taking the time to give it a 'thorough' testing prior to release. I know the world economy 'sucks' right now... but that's no reason to release programs that aren't 'ready' for release.

I will say, I have several other 'older' programs which I have purchased from Ashampoo & they perform as I expect... doing what I purchased them to do. Again, it's unfortunate Ashampoo's newer programs are not holding up to the 'high' performance standards of their older programs.
