Hard Disk Sentinel

Hello everyone! 

Why HDD Sentinel don't see SSD temp, power on time and estimated remaining lifetime? Here is LiteOn IT LCS256M6S 2.5 7mm 256GB.

Thanks in advance!

Hi @uco73 ,

Although it's not a question directly related to Dell even if it happens on a Dell machine, let me try to see if anything helps.

According to this thread from HDSentinel forum, Windows Defender may somehow blocks access to disk status and information completely. See if those suggested method mentioned in the thread helps on your case.

I disabled Windows Defender and installed Kaspersky. Problem is still here.

Re: Hard Disk Sentinel

EC (Embedded Controller) sensor does not allow any program to read information. I do not mind that and it's better for the protection of the computer itself.

Welcome to the Dell Community  @uco73 

It is drive specific what information it will display. 

An SSD does not have all of the same "SMART" attributes as an HDD.

I notice that some SSD's do have temperature readings and some do not.

I test and "DOD Wipe" hundreds of HDD's and SSD's every week. "Using Sentinel"

Some model SSD's will show the drive at 50% but is perfectly fine.
