What is ahddc2_guard.exe?

By Ashampoo Development GmbH & Co. KG

Description of ahddc2_guard.exe from Ashampoo Development GmbH & Co. KG
Be honest. In the digital era where bits and bytes have the day, does anyone really think about which tasks are performed by the hardware found in your typical computer? Integrated hardware components, in particular highly delicate hard drives, are hard at work every day. As long as the drive is functioning properly, you are lulled into a false sense of security. However, when the trusted hard drive suddenly fails, this is more than just a minor inconvenience. The resulting loss of data is often immensely damaging. Ashampoo HDD Control is therefore ideally suited to boost the performance of your drive, guard against disk failure and remove clutter from your hard drives, while performing all three functions of monitoring, maintenance and defragmentation.
