Considering buying the program or at least donating something to the developer if you find it useful.

Download link for 4.2 Licence Key, no need to register nod http://www.hdsentinel.com/license...ntinel.key
To activate, click "Load Activated Keyfile" and browse to hdsentinel.key.
This hdsentinel.key does NOT work with version 4.3.
Configuration > Update, make sure "Find new version" is unchecked.

Download link for 4.2 Pro: http://www.hdsentinel.com/hdsenti...tup420.zip

Download link for 4.2 Pro PORTABLE: http://slickdeals.net/forums/showpost.php?p=58270828&postcount=94

Hard Disk Sentinel Professional PORTABLE version can be used to diagnose hard disk drive and SSD devices in any computer without installation or modification of any settings, files on the appropriate computer. It can be effectively used from a pendrive (or other removable device) by system integrators and advanced users to periodically diagnose and test hard disk drives, however it does not provide real-time protection offered by the installed Hard Disk Sentinel Professional version.

The PORTABLE version contains all tests, diagnostic functions, options and features of Hard Disk Sentinel Professional, except some functions applicable for the installed version only (automatically start with Windows, use in Service mode, configure data folder location).


If you have a key for the Standard version from this deal: http://slickdeals.net/f/4695040?v=1, the key still works with Standard version 4.3.

Used the links in the wiki with no problem. Downloaded the key first and then during installation I used the find registration key function.

cool, I sent this to my roommate with the instructions to use the direct links in the wiki post. I got my lifetime license for the pro version for free from bitsdujour a while back, and when I showed it to him he liked the concept of being able to monitor your hard drives health in real time.

Thanks, just installed it. Won't work for RAID 0, other than a surface test. Works for other HDD's though.

Portable doesn't "install". It runs from a single folder without the need to install stuff all over your HDD.

I had this for a while. Didn't find much helpful so uninstalled it after a few months.
I think you are missing the point at least why the software was created. Without a S.M.A.R.T. monitoring program built into Windows (or whatever OS you use) how else are you going to know if your drive starts having to relocate sectors and begins a slide downhill? What if the bearing starts the failing process and spin up times start to go off the chart? As I said on page 1 according to google only about ~45% of mechanical hard drives in their servers reported SMART useable in determining a failure before hand.

...But running without a SMART scanner makes no sense at all. It's something you start and let sit in your try (I tweak settings up) so at the first sign of something happening, or temperatures being askew I know about it. Without it you are blind until something significant happens in many cases when the drive no longer boots or functions at that point data maybe gone forever.
