Heard about this product on a podcast:
StableBit Drive Scanner http://stablebit.com/Scanner

It will read all your HDD data, and ensure that it is still readable and writable - some datablocks are rarely read because they are not accessed that often. Read Once, Write Never ...





My thoughts are no longer my own and is probably representative of our media-controlled government

Interesting product, but "Continuously scans all of your hard drives" doesn't sound ideal - doing it occasionally sounds good, but not constantly.

Edit - it does say "The file system check is flexible, it has its own re-check interval, and can be disabled globally or per-disk". So that's ok.

timmmay: Interesting product, but "Continuously scans all of your hard drives" doesn't sound ideal - doing it occasionally sounds good, but not constantly.


this.

i get frustrated enough when i head to bed for the night, just start settling in, and my indexing processes, reading a whole disk... that would go on for awhile.


while this would be a nice warning sign, imo it wouldnt be worth it..
