Drive Bender v1.7 has arrived!

​Drive Bender v1.7 has just been released. This version carries with it some major milestones… most notably is our new S.M.A.R.T. engine powered by Hard Disk Sentinel. Hard Disk Sentinel is the benchmark by which all other S.M.A.R.T. monitoring apps are measured. And licensed users of Drive Bender are able to get a 25% discount off a professional edition of Hard Disk Sentinel using the in app link (in the Drive Bender Manager, Drives tab, then view the S.M.A.R.T. status).

That said I’m sure many users are asking why the version number jump? Well besides the obvious new features, there has been a number of “under the hood” changes to facilitate support for some low level API’s.

​So what’s next? Well v2.0 is already in the works and is the next planned major release… this is going to bring with it VSS support, multilingual support and our new compact view interface, in addition to some other great features.

Finally a big thanks to those that have helped with beta testing… again you have helped us release a product that we can be proud of.
