Ashampoo has unveiled a major new build of its hard drive maintenance and monitoring tool with the release of Ashampoo HDD Control 3.
The new release adds two major new features: support for monitoring up to three PCs over a network, and an addition to the program’s Clean System component, a tool for locating duplicate files.
HDD Control is designed to manage and maintain PC hard drives through the prevention of data loss, performance optimisation and monitoring of drives’ physical health. Version 3 extends these capabilities to allow users to monitor up to three PCs connected to the same local network. Handily, users don’t need to install any additional programs to access this feature.
The update also comes with the promise of improved email notifications, more detailed technical information about the user’s hard disks, enhanced benchmark comparisons using Ashampoo’s online database and better display of each drive’s health, performance and temperature.
The program’s cleanup tools, taken from its companion product Ashampoo WinOptimizer, are also improved – in addition to adding a new Duplicate Finder tool, two existing components have also been tweaked with both Drive Cleaner and Internet Cleaner tools getting unspecified enhancements.
