I tried the free version sometime ago, it does what it claims, I used more activesmart, well some should be careful since the pc will shut down if the Temp of the hard drive reaches the fixed Temp to maintain hard drive life, well its SMART technology in every case of this kind soft.

That's good to know, thanks. I was in particular looking at the "refresh surface" feature of the Pro version, but it seems to be destructive (it erases the data).

Do you know how long the coupon will work ?

Nope dont know when the coupon will stop working, refresh surface not sure how will be effective, rby reading and writing each sector and electronically realigning the data underneath a drive’s read/write heads. Well this demands a more robust soft; never tried this feature with Hard Disk Sentinel, but the offer 40%off is interesting and who knows how big will become the soft with updates.

Well try spinrite (shareware) and see if something is going wrong with the hard drive as bad sectors.

I looked again and I found that the Refresh feature is supposedly non destructive.  

I tried to download the free version, but the .zip archive contains the pro version.  How did you get the free version ?

Thanks.

Edited : solved ! The website says the free version =  pro version unregistered.
