This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
DriveSaver(TM) 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(TM) enables users to explore the different parts of the drive and their function. And, if data loss does occur, DriveSaver(TM) can help prevent catastrophic loss with do’s and don’ts for data recovery.
What's New in Version 1.1
Now features a solid state disk failure demonstration.
Blowing my mind
This app could possibly be the best thing to happen to data managers everywhere!
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
Great for explaining crashes! And it's free
