Ashampoo HDD Control 3 – The Software

Hard disks are the long term memory of your PC. And just like your memory, they degrade over time. Fragmented file systems cause longer access times and mechanical wear and tear inevitably leads to data loss and drive failure. Nearly 10% of all hard disks already wear out in their third year of operation.  Ashampoo HDD Control 3 jogs the memory of your PC. Lower access times, remove resource hogs, prevent data loss and detect signs of failure early on.

  • Early warning system against failure
  • Shorter access times
  • Good bye to memory hogs
  • Wipe sensitive data and restore accidentally deleted files
  • Track down and delete redundant files

I’m pretty sure you’d agree there is no worse experience for a computer user than massive data loss, and the most prevalent cause of data loss is hard drive failure. So, how would you like a professional software that’s constantly monitoring and analyzing your hard drive(s) for potential disk failure and prevention? That’s exactly what Ashampoo HDD Control 3 is designed to do. However, coming from Ashampoo, you’d expect that it does a heck of a lot more than that, and you’d not be disappointed.

As well as monitoring and analyzing, Ashampoo HDD Control 3 includes a host of additional features to maintain your hard drive(s) at optimum performance. Indeed, as one reviewer recently noted… “Ashampoo HDD Control 3 is an all-in-one suite that works wonders when it comes to hard drive maintenance.

Additional features include:

  • Hard Drive Defrag – Proactive or manual, with built-in reminders when partitions become overly fragmented
  • Drive Cleaner – Scans hard drives for all manner of unnecessary files to reclaim as much storage space as possible

  • Internet Cleaner – Erase all internet traces
  • Disk Space Explorer – Discover what’s eating up your valuable disk space
  • Duplicate Finder – Scan for and erase superfluous duplicate files
  • File Wiper – Securely delete data
  • File Undeleter – Recover inadvertently deleted files

All that, as well as providing detailed technical information for your disks, S.M.A.R.T support, SSD support, benchmarking, and surface testing. Ashampoo HDD Control 3 really is the Swiss Army Knife of hard drive maintenance. And if you think Ashampoo HDD Control 3 is only suitable for more advanced users, think again. As usual, Ashampoo’s interface is surprisingly intuitive with an easy to understand layout and straightforward descriptions.
