[prMac.com] Krasnoyarsk, Russia - The new release of SSD Health 1.0 for Mac OS X is available. The tool monitors the status of SSD drives by measuring temperature, write/read error count and multiple S.M.A.R.T parameters. By providing technical and statistical information about a solid-state drive, SSD Health informs the user about the current health and probable lifespan of the drive.
While all parts of a computer are crucial, it is the hard drive that stores the user's information. So when the drive fails, the cost of such a failure could be much higher than just the price for a new part. That is why it is important to keep a check on SDD drives, even though the newer models are much more stable than previous versions.
SSD Health, recently released on the Mac OS by SSD Health Company, performs comprehensive monitoring and analysis of all major technical details that can impact a drive's trouble-free operation. In particular, the program shows how long the sold-state drive has been online, what the current temperature is, and whether there any reading or writing errors, etc.
Thanks to full support for the S.M.A.R.T technology, the tool can track the slightest changes in SDD's health and warn a user in time, before a small glitch becomes a big problem. SSD Health consolidates hundreds of parameters, and displays the current health status in percentages. In addition, the program tries to estimate the dynamics of SDD health deterioration and predict the average lifespan of the drive, so a user can take measures before any data is actually lost.
