How to view usage time of your computer

by Ruchira on April 14, 2010

If you have a hard drive with SMART capability (well 100% of SATA hard drives comes with this option) and you bought it with your new computer I mean if you bought your whole new computer once there is a nice option to view your computers usage timers.

Actually usage timers mean your Hard Disk’s working time so its equal to your computers usage time if you bought them newly together. No matter its branded PC or Custom PC.

Please note that this program only works with hard drives that has SMART capability if your HDD is SATA then you dont have to worry about. some of older ATA drives support this feature too.

Only you need to do is download this simple software here-

That is HDD Life trial version from

And install it and then run it-


Note that some times this will not display 100% accurate time. But its worth to try! 🙂

The data stored on this hard drive is in danger! Back up all your data immediately and replace the hard drive if possible. If it is not possible, make sure you back up all your data every day.
