Hard disk is the first place where you store your all data and of course your operating system is also installed there. Do I need to mention that you also install your all software on a hard disk? When your every digital thing is stored on hard disk, I am sure you also take backups. You are not taking backups every minute, so the backups are with interval and might be you only taking one backup in 24 hours or in one week. In any case, whether you are taking backups or not, you need a tool to monitor your system’s hard disk health like a doctor. O&O DriveLED 4 Professional is one among many such doctors.
Efficient But Ugly: O&O DriveLED 4 Professional (current version 4.2) is a hard disk monitoring tool which not only monitors local internal and external disks
but also monitor disks on network. This monitoring continues for 24/7. The only condition is O&O DriveLED should be running all the time. With O&O DriveLED 4, you know the happening disaster before hand. You get time take backup of your important data from the problematic hard disk. Well, here hard disk means all internal and external hard disks and network drives.
There is one good thing that you can see detailed report in your web browser as well as in DriveLED’s own interface. I will prefer web browser because or easy readability. If you click on Pencil icon just next to Type info on hard disk info window, General Information about that disk will be shown in a browser like disk name, health, serial number, device ID, Interface Index, Size and then there is detailed S.M.A.R.T. data of your hard disk.

Whenever, I test a software I always put myself as non-technical user because I write for non-technical simple users who only needs to know what are the limitations of a software. Can the software do what one is looking for? I also try to use simple easy to understandable terms. This is totally opposite to those bloggers who always call them techie and geek, fill there articles with difficult technical terms just to impress you and fill there sites with advertisements.
O&O DriverLED 4 Professional does not has impressive layout. They have used high-contrast color scheme. The font is ugly and difficult to understand what is written. Icons are too small to be clicked by a person facing motor-skill issues. Any properties windows also has the same problems. It looks like the interface is designed by a kid. All other O&O Software have very eye pleasing interface but O&O DriverLED 4 Professional.
