HARD DISK MONITORING

Compatible Solid State Disk (SSD)

Hard Disk Sentinel is compatible and supports the detection of all SSD (solid state disk drives) models, regardless of their connection and size. Hard Disk Sentinel automatically detects and displays the supported features of these solid state disk drives.

SSD models use some traditional S.M.A.R.T. attributes differently than hard disks and they introduced new features and different attributes compared to hard disks. We constantly analyse SSD drives to provide accurate information about these devices also in addition for hard disk drives.

Hard Disk Sentinel detects and displays these SSD details and verifies known and special, vendor-specific S.M.A.R.T. attributes to display the health and temperature values of the solid state disk. Not all SSD devices have temperature sensors - in such cases the temperature value is unknown. Hard Disk Sentinel also detects SSD specific features, like the TRIM feature or Reset workout counters.

Some SSD devices also support special functions, for example short and extended hardware self tests, resettable workout counters (Intel SSDs). If these are supported, the appropriate tests and functions are available in Hard Disk Sentinel.

Below a list is available about SSD drives tested and confirmed that they compatible and work properly with Hard Disk Sentinel:

Other type of SSD devices should also work without problems and their details are constantly added to new versions. If you have different type of solid state disk drives / SSD device(s), please use the Report menu Send test report to developer option to create and send a report. Such reports help to analyse the device, its features and add better support to the software.

About Solid State Disk Drive (SSD)

Solid state disks do not contain any moving parts. Because of this, they may tolerate physical vibrations and shock better than hard disks. But they have other kind of problems: write cycles wear the electronic parts so lots of delete and write operations may also damage them. Wear leveling feature can help in this situation but the problem is not fully eliminated.

Current SSD technology also has another problem: solid state disk drives may "forget" data with time. To prevent this, periodic complete overwrites can refresh the storage device - but because of its nature this also reduces the lifetime of the solid state disk.

From the viewpoint of the computer and software, SSD devices act like hard disks. They support many features of hard disks, including S.M.A.R.T. and this allows Hard Disk Sentinel to detect and display health, lifetime and details statistics also about solid state disks, identify when the SSD need to be replaced to prevent data loss.

This way there is no need to have separate tools to monitor and diagnose hard disks, SSD drives, external storage, RAID arrays - as these integrated to Hard Disk Sentinel.
