Identify, diagnose or repair Western Digital hard drives"
A review by Flo

Disk drives are one of the most sensitive components of a computer system. Not only does it influence the proper functioning of computer units, but it also stores all the data in a computer system. As such, the failure of the hard drive can cause a data loss disaster. Therefore, it is critical to ensure that the Hard Drive of a computer unit is functioning at optimal capacity at all time.

Western Digital Data Lifeguard Diagnostics is developed by Western Digital, one of the leading global storage device manufacturers.

The user has the option of testing the drive using the inbuilt “Quick Test” which activates the SMART drive self-test and reads the Data Lifeguard information stored in the disk. The “Extended Test” takes more time and does a full media scan to check for bad sectors. The third option is called “Write Zeros” which wipes out all the content of the hard drive either through a quick erase or a complete hard drive wipe.

This dedicated hard drive diagnostic tool is useful in testing drives and analyzing SMART data from hard drives.

This application is a decent tool for checking and correcting hard drive problems.

Western Digital Data Lifeguard Diagnostics is licensed as freeware for PC or laptop with Windows 32 bit and 64 bit operating system. It is in hard disk utilities category and is available to all software users as a free download.
