The computers and their hardware are prone to external shocks and damage which can destroy the normal functioning of the entire computer. To cater to this problem for HP computers, HP 3D DriveGuard has been created.
It can help you in protecting your computer by sensing the shocks. The integrated accelerometer is used for this purpose. If your computer experiences some unusual jerk, this utility can enable the hard drive to cover the heads, and thus it can be saved from any possible damage.
Using this technology, even if your computer has fallen or dropped hard somewhere, you can expect HP 3D DriveGuard to be activated. HP 3D DriveGuard allows users to adjust some settings through the user-friendly interface.
It must be noted that this application will only work if it keeps running in the background all the time. If you have stopped the background operations or this application from running, you should not expect the same protection for your hard drive.
For a Hewlett-Packard user, using such an application can help ensure extra protection for the PC and lesser risks of damage.
