Hard Disk Sentinel Pro 5.20 Full Patch

By | 25 March 2018

Hard Disk Sentinel Pro 5.20 Full Patch (HDSentinel) is a hard disk monitoring software with highest possible support of HDD/SSD/SSHD (hybrid) drives. Its goal is to find, test, diagnose and repair hard disk drive problems, report and display SSD and HDD health, performance degradations and failures. Hard Disk Sentinel gives complete textual description, tips and displays/reports the most comprehensive information about the hard disks and solid state disks inside the computer or in external enclosures (USB / e-SATA). Many different alerts and report options are available to ensure maximum safety of your valuable data.

The software monitors hard disk drive / HDD status, including health, temperature and all S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology, built in most hard disks, solid state disks and hybrid drives (SSHD) today) values for each disks. Also it measures the disk transfer speed in real time which can be used as a benchmark or to detect possible hard disk failures, performance degradations.

  • improved WRITE testing (Surface test -> Write test, Write+Read, Reinitialise disk surface) to prevent “access denied” error
  • updated Help to cover new functions, features
  • completely redesigned tray icon handling: better sort/move/order tray icons under Windows 7, 8.1, 10
  • improved disk surface test performance with Intel, LSI, Dell SAS RAID controllers and SAS HBAs

    displaying RAID controller temperature for ATTO RAID controllers
  • added detection of complete disk status when ASMEDIA ASM1352R external USB RAID controller used: detection of complete status when RAID 0 / RAID 1 / LARGE / JBOD confiuration used
  • added support of RaidSonic ICY BOX IB-RD2253-U31, Oyen Digital Minipro RAID USB 3.1 enclosure
  • added support of Intel(R) Integrated RAID Module RMT3PB080: detection complete hard disk / SSD information, health, temperature, self-monitoring data of SATA/SAS drives managed in RAID configurations.
  • added support of ASMEDIA ASM109x RAID controllers with proper firmware: detection complete hard disk / SSD information, health, temperature, self-monitoring data of SATA drives managed in RAID0, RAID1, SPAN/large configurations

Hardware Requirements :

  • Pentium or compatible CPU
  • 64 megabytes of system memory
  • 50 megabytes of hard disk space
  • One or more hard disk, solid state disk, hybrid drive (SSHD) with ATA (IDE or Serial ATA/SATA II/SATA 6G), SCSI, SAS, USB, NVMe interface.
    See Hardware compatibility pages for supported hard disk drives, SSD models, disk controllers and external hard disks / enclosures / adapters.
    Other type of external disks (some IEEE 1394 connections, or used in NAS enclosures and connected via Ethernet) are NOT supported because the hard disk controller chip in the external enclosure does not support the detection of hard disk status (S.M.A.R.T.) information.

Software Requirements :

  • Windows operating system: Windows 95, 98, 98SE, ME, NT4, 2000, XP, 2003, 2008, Vista, Windows 7, Windows Home Server, Windows 2012, Windows Server 2016, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 both 32 and 64 bit versions (where applicable)
  • System administrator account (in service mode, it is possible to use without administrator rights and without even user logged in)
