8 Apr 2014 - Hard Disk Sentinel Professional detailed review and license giveaway @ Giveaway Paradise "Hard Disks
aren't forever. They will fail someday. You can't do anything about it. But hey, you can keep an eye on it. Hard Disk Sentinel Pro is everything you'll ever need. It'll provide all the information you'll ever need about your HDD/SDD, will maintain each and every aspect of the disk and before the dooms day arrive, Hard Disk Sentinel Pro will safely transfer your data to a safe location.
Hard Disk Sentinel Pro doesn't need any maintenance. Install it, and it'll keep on working for you in the background.
I highly recommend Hard Disk Sentinel Pro to anyone who uses a computer." - Mohammad Wasiullah, editor
Hard Disk Sentinel is a quite comprehensive software whilst being relatively easy to use at the same time. As a less technically minded user you can utilize the functionality you need and leave the rest be. As a power user you should find any feature you could possibly want in the software. If not, you can ask the Hard Disk Sentinel developers directly in on our HD Sentinel forum here for any missing features.
As I have ventured into the HD Sentinel software during this review, I must admit wishing I had purchased a license when I first tried it a few years back. My overall impression of this software is therefore extremely good.
After spending a few weeks testing Hard Disk Sentinel software I can conclude that it definitely does what it claims to do, and in my experience was very easy and self-explanatory in its functions. I had no problems, crashes, or other issues with the software, and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone owning a computer.
