It's extremely rare to lose data from your hard drive. Since Windows XP, the operating system is also very stable and applications such as Microsoft Word will perpetually auto-save your documents, in case your system needs to reboot or an application causes a crash. However, you use your hard drive constantly and it only has a finite life span. If you've owned your system for a few years, you never know when performance will decrease or your drive will pack in completely. If this happens, you might find that you lost all your data and more.
HDDlife Pro 3.0.138 is a tool that will enable you to check on the status of your drive and whether it's performing correctly or suffering from a decrease in performance. Better still, you can determine whether your drive is close to the end of its lifespan and, if it is, you can always purchase a new drive and migrate data across, before it's too late.
