Hard Drive Inspector setup
Windows NT 4.0 / 2000 / XP / 2003
To setup Hard Drive Inspector on Windows NT 4.0 / 2000 / XP /
2003, you must have administratorís privileges because Hard Drive Inspector has
to install the hddsvc.exe service (HDD Information Service) for its
execution. By default, HDD Information Service is executed with the rights of
the Local System Account, which must have access to each logical disk of your
HDDs and read/write access to the "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software" registry node.
However, you can use Hard Drive Inspector under an account even with the rights
of a common user.
Windows 95 / 98 / ME
Hard Drive Inspector uses the smartvsd.vxd driver for
Hard Drive Inspector setup on Windows 95 / 98 / ME. If it is not installed on
your computer, the installer would copy it to the system folder
Windows\System\IoSubSys and then would ask to reboot in order to provide an
ability for Windows to activate this driver. There is no need to reboot if the
driver already exists in this folder.
