HD Spy for Mac
Keeping a close eye on your disk status is highly recommended because you get to identify problems and correct errors before its too late and you lose all your data. HD Spy is a minimalist Mac app that provides general info about your disk, but also provides the status of the S.M.A.R.T parameters.
Unobtrusive disk monitoring solution that displays general details about your HDD
Upon launch, HD Spy places a small menu in your status bar that displays the current hard disk temperature. However, all the other disk details can be visualized only via the HD Spy’s main window, which is organized in 2 tabs: Information and Health.
Via the app’s Preferences window you can choose to hide the status bar menu, or to display the hard disk health information instead. Other customization options include the possibility to change the temperature measurement unit, the size display type, or the S.M.A.R.T auto refresh interval.
Effortlessly visualize general details about your HDD and check the S.M.A.R.T status
Within the HD Spy main window you can easily see your disk’s model, serial number, firmware, capacity, temperature, power on time, interface speed, queue depth, and BSD name. In addition, you can view all available partitions, and the supported properties.
At the same time, in the HD Spy Health panel, you can easily visualize the status of various S.M.A.R.T parameters and identify possible errors. The app enables you to see the read error rate, the spin-up time, the start/stop time, the seek error rate, and so on.
