Few and far between
are occasions when I find a piece of software that is as superb as DiskView
customization and just about everything else.
a slick program that performs two essential functions that Windows does
not have, it shows a graphic breakdown of how your data takes up space
on your hard drive; and it works together with SMART Technology (Self-Monitoring
Analysis and Reporting Technology) to diagnose the health of your hard
drive and predict failures.
Once installed, Diskview automatically analyzes your disk for space usage
and errors. It becomes one with your Windows explorer to give you on-the-fly
statistics of each individual folder on the drive. To see how much space
each program or file takes up on your drive, simply click on the Diskview
button in your windows explorer and the program immediately shows a graphical
representation of each folder.
Another nice point is that Diskview does not take up much of your system
resources so it won’t interfere with even the most intense computing.
Some other notable features include a display of file fragmentation, physical
attributes of the hard drive (temperature, speed, etc.), and simple report
So what’s the number one reason to get Diskview? Its ability to
predict hard drive failures of course! Once the SMART indicators fall
below their safe thresholds, Diskview will inform you of the situation,
with ample time to backup your data before the inevitable happens. The
reality is that all drives eventually fail. Will you be prepared?
