PDF Print E-mail

Preventing hard disks from disk failures and crashes can avert the loss of important data, but assessing the disk health manually is not only time consuming, but tiring as well. Disk Health Monitor is an application for Windows that can keep a check on disk health, and send emails when hard disk crash or read/write error is reported by Windows Event Viewer. The application notifies the user in two ways; one with a balloon pop-up in system tray and other is email notification. The application automatically starts with Windows logon, and scans Windows event log up to the last system start up in order to identify hard disk errors that might’ve occurred before Disk Health Monitor starts.

The Configuration panel will automatically open after installation. You will need a Gmail account to receive email notifications. Under SMTP Server, specify the SMTP settings. If you, for instance, want to send email notification to Gmail account, enter ”” as the server address. Then, enter your complete Gmail username and password in SMTP Username and SMTP Password fields respectively. Choose 465 as SMTP Port and check Use SSL option. Once done, enter a valid email addresses in Default From and Default To Email Address fields, respectively. You can add more than one Default To Email Addresses separated by a comma and space. Once all settings are configured, click Save & Start Now to start the application.
