If you’ve ever lost data to a hard drive failure before, you know how much that can suck. If you haven’t, then don’t get too confident. Hard drives are very prone to failure and most don’t survive past three or four years of age. Luckily, nearly two-thirds of hard drive failures can be detected well before they occur! Smart Drive will give you unprecedented peace of mind when it comes to your hard drive’s health. It will invisibly monitor your hard drive’s status and will only bother you when it detects an impending failure. Smart Drive uses a technology called SMART and relies on large-scale statistical analyses performed by researchers at Google.
