I don't have a sharewareonsale account and it seems to require an account to download.
Just grab it from here instead, no account needed:

Filename shows 5.40, but the installed program shows 5.40.1
Here is the clean virustotal of the setup exe.

It shows the S.M.A.R.T. data, which you can get maybe easier using the free Crystal Disk Info, has some features that can be occasionally useful, but I use it mainly to monitor hard drive temps using a USB drive dock or a hard disk in an external USB housing. Without active cooling a conventional drive can get hot enough to damage the drive &/or the data you're writing to that drive.

Just a week ago, one of my drives had CRC error (that usually is a bad data cable). Hard Disk Sentinel showed the error in the main page. So I saw it. I opened the PC case and replaced the data cable. No more increasing in CRC error. I was using a Hard Disk Sentinel from 2016. Now I'm using this newer one.

Not a hot deal. OP should know better. Is free very often.

Hot or Cold aside, the 3 years old version saved one of my drives from increasing CRC error. I paid $160 for the hard drive.
