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.

Review by mnovell

Great app and great customer service! - I downloaded this app and it confirmed my suspicions that one of my external drives was failing. (It gave me a warning indicating that the drive was encountering errors and would likely fail soon). I had enough time to get a backup of my data before the drive failed completely a few days later! The author was also quick to respond to my questions when contacted. I feel more confident with my data now that I have insight into the condition of my drives and the knowledge that I'll be alerted if problems appear.

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.
