Free Hard Disk Health Monitoring Software

Acronis Drive Monitor

Why is hard disk health important?  Your hard disk is an integral part of your computer.  It’s where your operating system resides — e.g. Windows — as well as your programs and files — e.g. your consignment software, your consignor/inventory database, etc.  Your backups might also be stored on a hard disk, albeit external.

Hard disk health can be tested and monitored.  Acronis Drive Monitor is free hard disk health monitoring software from trusted backup software developer, Acronis.

With ADM, you can configure email alerts when your hard disk’s health declines, if it reports errors, or overheats.

CrystalDiskInfo is another free utility, which can be utilized to test your hard disk’s health.

We wanted consignment and resale storeowners to know they can be in a more-proactive position, by actively monitoring the health of their hard disk(s).  By monitoring hard disk health, you can minimize down-time and be proactively alerted to potentially catastrophic issues.

After 20 years of working with consignment stores, I understand the unique challenges consignment & resale store-owners face. From electrical issues in old buildings or strip malls, to advocating for them when their old consignment software keeps crashing.
