Drive List

The Drive List shows the local drives as well as the connected network drives. You can see the size of the drive as well as the free disk space. The S.M.A.R.T. column offers a quick info about the health and hardware status of supported devices.

Double-clicking starts a scan of the selected drive.




S.M.A.R.T. is available only for local drives supporting the S.M.A.R.T. standard (Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology). Windows grants access to these values only to processes that have been started "as administrator" and if the installed driver supports this.

Additionally to the listed drive UNC paths can be added using the right click menu.

You can use wildcards when defining the paths to be scanned. This way, you can even scan paths like "S:\Users\R*" or "R:\*\MyVideos".

You can scan all shared drives in your network by entering \\* in the drive combo box.

The drive list can be automatically exported into an Excel, Text, or CSV file by using the command line option "/EXPORTDRIVESLIST".
