HP 3D DriveGuard is better because it continuously sends park commands compared to others that limit the number of times that the heads can be parked.  This avoids the risk of loss through wear that can arise from excessive parking. HP 3D DriveGuard is a program that continually obtains and parks head information from your notebook so that damage is reduced if you drop the notebook accidently or it smashes against something else. 


  • Parks the head forever so the notebook can be transported safely when not in standby mode
  • Keeps the hard drive head parked without accidentally parking by sending continuous park commands
  • While you are moving without sending continuous park commands
  • Eliminates or lessens the potential for wear and tear by avoiding and eliminating limited number of times a head can be parked.
  • Uses  a Three-axis digital accelerometer to detect any type of sudden motion and parks the hard drive to avoid loss of data

The HP 3D DriveGuard is preferable to competing hard drive protections because it sends continuous park commands to protect the Notebook data and uses a Three-axis digital accelerometer to detect movement.

This program helps computer users out by parking the hard drive and sending that command continuously. This protects the computer from damage. Sounds like a very useful tool! I would definitely use this, especially when transporting a computer, since data can be damaged if the computer is not parked correctly and is dropped.
