  • Hard Disk Sentinel detects and displays the status (health, temperature, statistics, S.M.A.R.T. status) for ALL hard disk drives / SSDs in multi (2-4-5) drive enclosures marked with RAID in the list.

  • With some older multi drive enclosures (supporting two or more hard disks) the disk drives should be configured as standalone / JBOD mode. Using RAID setting may prevent the detection and display of hard disk status information and details.

  • (*): only the first hard disk health and temperature displayed on eSATA connection but both hard disk health and temperature displayed on USB connection.

  • (**): NAS devices on the Ethernet line do not provide access to the hard disk thus disk information is displayed only using USB or eSATA connection.

If you have any external hard disk (or enclosure), please send a report about your configuration by using Send test report to developer option in the main window. Please include the type (manufacturer, model) of your external hard (enclosure) also. Reports help in further development of Hard Disk Sentinel.

Thank you very much for your help.
