DriveDx 1.11.0

DriveDx 1.11.0

DriveDx is advanced drive health diagnostic and monitoring utility. Save yourself the data loss and downtime that is associated with unexpected drive failures. Don't worry about losing your important data, music, and photographs.

Unlike most drive utilities, DriveDx does not only monitor the drive’s built-in S.M.A.R.T. status, but also analyzes the changes of all drive health indicators that are closely related to SSD or HDD failures (like SSD wear out / endurance, reallocated bad sectors, offline bad sectors, pending sectors, I/O errors and more) and alerts the user immediately if anything goes wrong. Our drive health diagnostics algorithms are based on the recent researches in this field. The application provides access to all sufficient drive diagnostic data to satisfy any system administrator. DriveDx is the first utility of its kind to have a real user-friendly Mac-style interface.

Key features:

  • support of modern SSDs and HDDs
  • real-time SSD/HDD health status monitoring
  • pre-failure state early detection - DriveDx supports 3 drive health statuses: Ok, Failing (pre-failure) and Failed. (Most of drive utilities support only "Ok" and "Failed")
  • drive failure prediction based on health indicators that are closely related to SSD or HDD failures
  • multi-tier warning system that will inform the user about deviations from the normal state of drive attributes
  • drive overall health rating
  • drive overall performance rating (if drive supports this subset of indicators)
  • SSD lifetime left indicator
  • support of drive short and full (extended) self-tests
  • save drive(s) health report to file
  • automatic drive health reports by email (automatic email reports)
  • human-readable drive health indicators (attributes) representation
  • different routines for SSD and HDD health evaluation
  • drive temperature monitoring
  • drive free space monitoring
  • history-based drive health evaluation
  • S.M.A.R.T. error log
  • Growl notifications
  • user friendly and intuitive UI
  • Retina displays support

What's New:

Version 1.11.0:

  • Removed support of 32-bit Macs,
  • Fixed crash duriing drive long self-test on some Macs,
  • Fixed app menubar initially freezes in macOS 11 Big Sur,
  • Fixed duplicated/ghost drives in the UI if the app measurement results DB has lost its integrity (damaged),
  • Added SAT SMART Driver fully compatible with Apple Silicon,
  • Added more user hints for different SAT driver installation troubleshooting cases,
  • Impoved app UI style for macOS 11 Big Sur,
  • Improved drive diagnostic algorithms and heuristics,
  • Impoved diagnosing NVMe SSDs in edge case scenarios,
  • Changed now by default reports data size in units based on powers of 10 instead of 2 (ie 1K = 1000 instead of 1K = 1024), can be changed via the menu “Help > Developer”,
  • Added support of Kingston A400 M.2 SSDs,
  • Improved support of Kingston A400 SATA SSDs,
  • Improved descripton of next NVMe health indicators: “Power On Hours”, “Life Percentage Used”, “Data Units Written”, “Data Units Read” and “Unsafe Shutdowns”,
  • Added minor tweaks and fixes.
