"Why do I want another SERVICE CLOGGING up my PC's usage when it can't do nothing about it either way?".
It's not a service unless you choose to configure it to be one. It doesn't clog up your PC's usage. I'm on an old, resource-poor PC with many realtime programs running, and HDS is very lightweight for me, giving me no problems.
I done some testing and had conflicting reports. It said an external hard drive of mine was about to crash, but the problem I have with that report is after I ran a complete scan with Windows and other tools it said it was fine. S
The fact that you got one false alarm is a lot less important than the fact that I and many others have gotten accurate warnings that a hard drive was in serious trouble which we wouldn't have known about otherwise. I have been running it for years now without false alarms.
I have not attempted to use it to fix anything, so I can't address that. Maybe somebody else can.
