CheckDrive checks the health of your hard drives to protect you from sudden data loss.
Many hundreds of thousands of HDD and SSD hard drives are already supported. CheckDrive also provides an assessment for more and more external storage media such as USB hard drives.
CheckDrive Smart-Analyze-Diagnostics™️ uses the hard drive's S.M.A.R.T data to give you a detailed health analysis of your hard drives.
The popular program has been widely praised by the trade press and users, and has received several awards as a must-have tool for every PC.
CheckDrive has a unique background guard that monitors all storage media even in real time. This way, you are warned in time before a defect occurs.

The Hard Drive Doctor examines your drives and warns you if data loss is imminent. [...] With the help of special analysis data, the failure of a hard disk can be predicted in many cases. If desired, the programme will regularly check your hard disk(s) and SSD drives for errors on its own and try to repair them if necessary.
The free "CheckDrive" finds and fixes hard disk errors.
CheckDrive Plus monitors your hard drives (also SSD drives) for so-called SMART errors, corrects them and displays useful information. So you can be sure that your data is also safe (...)
CheckDrive was awarded the 4-star award by UpdateStar users.
Hello! I just want to say a quick thanks. Checkdrive immediately and quickly repaired my hard drive, whereas the Windows tool failed!
Overall, CheckDrive is a very smart tool you can put in use to monitor your mission critical hard drives without sacrificing too much of the computer power.
A brilliantly conceived and valuable program. The best of it kind I've yet seen.
A backup program is recommended in any case, since the analysis of CheckDrive is only an interpretation of the hard disk data and no guarantee can be given. In addition, sudden events such as lightning, overvoltage, fire or theft can also make the hard drive data inaccessible, which is why a backup program such as Abelssoft EasyBackup is recommended for protection.
CheckDrive provides an overview of the health status of your hard disk based on calculations and hard disk data. For example, an increase in bad sectors may indicate that the hard disk will soon suffer a failure. The CheckDrive analysis is an interpretation of the data and therefore cannot be a guaranteed prediction. It is therefore always advisable to protect your own data against loss with a regular backup copy.
CheckDrive uses the so-called S.M.A.R.T. data as well as other manufacturer data of the hard disks for the calculation and also displays these separately. The health status is therefore a product of the S.M.A.R.T. data, manufacturer information and a calculation algorithm.
CheckDrive is designed for standard household systems with hard disks and partitions. RAID systems are not supported. The use of CheckDrive in the case of already pre-damaged RAID systems can result in further damage.
