Monitor HDD Health on Windows Server

HDD health is very important for a server as failure could happen at anytime, causing loss of precious data, thus monitoring HDD health is a very important step for server management.


Step 1: Open Windows Power Shell, type “diskmgmt.msc” (without quote marks) and press Enter to open up Disk Management Tools window.


Step 2: Wait until the disks are loaded, then you can check the disk health for each disk.1

If it reads “Healthy”, the HDD is good for use for awhile. Be careful if the status reads “Unhealthy” as hardware failure could happen soon and thus replacing the unhealthy disk is recommended.
