There are plenty of tools available for monitoring the health of a hard disk. O&ODriveLED2 is one of the best in this category and carries out a continuous health check of the hard disk and warns the user, if there is any possible potential problem. You can then secure your data in order to avoid a fatal loss either by making a back up of the system or by replacing the affected hard disk drives. So, this program plays a vital role in protecting data and making sure it is accessible long-term.

Status of your hard disks can be seeing by small indicator lights in the control panel of the program. Depending on the status of the hard disk, it changes its color; Blue – no activity to report, Green – read access on the partition, Red – data is being written onto the partition, Yellow – data is being written onto the partition and read access on the partition has been reported.

After installation, in the Control panel right click on ‘Hard disk’ icon and select SMART, then select ‘Start detailed SMART test’. After the self test, if no errors are found, the respective categories will be lit up green. If errors occur, they will be reported; more details available with the associated help file.
