WindowSMART 2013

Disk failures destroy data. Disk failures are expensive. Protect your data and cut costs with WindowSMART 2013!

WindowSMART is designed for businesses and power users

Unexpected disk failures are expensive. Lost data, employee downtime, an emergency service call and forensic data recovery are all expensive costs that eat away at your bottom line--the average per-incident cost to a business for an unexpected drive failure is $1200 USD. With WindowSMART 2013, you get early notification that disks are having problems so you can take corrective action before disaster strikes. Back up the data, schedule a service call when its convenient and most importantly, save money.

WindowSMART 2013 integrates seamlessly into the enterprise. Centrally configure end-user computers with WindowSMART's Active Directory template and monitor those computers with the WindowSMART management pack for Microsoft System Center. WindowSMART is even available in a lightweight client version if you want to monitor computers without giving users the full UI.

Since compatibility is often a concern of system administrators when deciding whether or not a tool is suitable to be deployed in a corporate environment, we've taken the guesswork out of that. WindowSMART 2013 passed the Microsoft designed tests for compatibility, stability and reliability and is authorized to display both the Windows 8 Compatible and Compatible with Windows 7 logos.

Powerful features don't mean complicated features

WindowSMART was designed not only to be powerful, but simple to use as well. A simple user interface shows you everything you need to know about your disks in a single view. Large buttons and icons make it easy to perform essential tasks. Even the licensing is simple. Buy just one home license, and all the computers in your home are covered.

Most importantly, however, is that WindowSMART is a set-it-and-forget-it tool. Set it up the way you want, and it'll take care of the rest. Even if nothing is wrong, WindowSMART can send you a daily email just to tell you everything is okay.

If you're not sure if WindowSMART will run on your home PC, we want you to rest assured that WindowSMART will install and run smoothly. We ran WindowSMART through Microsoft's desktop app certification tests for compatibility, stability and reliability, and WindowSMART passed them all. WindowSMART is thus authorized to display both the Windows 8 Compatible and Compatible with Windows 7 logos.

Geeky, technical stuff about WindowSMART 2013

WindowSMART 2013 is supported on all versions of Windows, starting with Windows XP Service Pack 3 and later. This includes Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8. For servers, this includes Windows Server 2003 (SP-2 or later), Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows Server 2012.

WindowSMART will work with most laptops and desktops. If you bought your computer at a store such as Best Buy, Fry's, Walmart, etc., chances are WindowSMART will run just fine. However, if you have a server, high-end gaming desktop or a computer you built yourself, WindowSMART might not work with it, particularly if you are using hardware RAID. WindowSMART does not work with most hardware RAID controllers, particularly if the disks are configured in a RAID array. If you're not sure if WindowSMART will recognize your disks, install the trial version. If you see question marks next to the disks, then WindowSMART may not support them. Always ensure you have the latest drivers installed. Sometimes a simple drive update resolves the problem.

WindowSMART 2013 requires the Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Full to be installed.
