DriveSaver® is the first and only hard drive simulator for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Created by DriveSavers Data Recovery, it’s a virtual world that gives you a realistic sense of the disastrous feelings, sights and sounds of data storage device failure. Anyone who ever wanted to see inside a hard drive or learn why drives fail, must try it!
The most popular feature of the application is “Crash a Hard Drive,” a simulation of real-world drive failures that users experience daily. Watch a head crash score the platters and turn the data into dust, and, in the new version 1.1 update, see a Solid State Drive (SSD) circuit board go up in smoke chip-by-chip. DriveSaver® enables users to explore the different parts of the drive and their function. And, if data loss does occur, DriveSaver® can help prevent catastrophic loss with do’s and don’ts for data recovery.
Ratings and Reviews
Good sounds aren't great
Good app for demonstrating however the sounds don't sound realistic at all it'd be nice to have them sound more accurate
I'm always amazed at how little people know about how their data is stored. Irreplaceable memories or data are just spinning away on a hard drive, or sitting on flash on a phone. This app goes a long way to bridge that knowledge gap, so you can show people what's happening with their data. Great app!
Blowing my mind
This app could possibly be the best thing to happen to data managers everywhere!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
