DiskFailure has a single purpose, to warn you about a potential or imminent hard disk failure before the disk is rendered nonfunctional/data is lost.

It will warn you trough alert dialogs, growl notifications and the menubar icon, it also features* a detailed list of your drives and the monitored parameters for each and a kernel log history of any relevant drive events.

If available all the data is stored in the cloud, the information for any disks or logs is available on all your machines and accessible from either one so you can monitor disks remotely, never lose any history and it is all within reach.

Could do more.

This app is good overall, but, it should also have the ability to monitor the system (main) hard drive as well. Please take note of this suggestion and possibly add more detailed information on all drives.

It lacks vital components

This app is just OK. It doesnt give me detailed information about my hard drive. Disk Utility is telling me my hard drive is messed up (not verified, MAC OSX needs to be re-installed) and this is telling me everything is dandy... I trust the disk utility.... GREAT idea! terrible app...

iCloud and sandboxing

When this app was simple, it was useful.

Now its use of (the incredibly unreliable and truly Apple's worst idea ever) iCloud make it annoying.

Further, continuous prompts for access to /var/log/asl is beyond annoying.

Give me the option to turn all that crap off.

Or I won't be running this anymore.
