Matt Sawyer of Dojo North Software has posted in the forums with the announcement of a new beta release of his Home Server SMART Add-In plus a special pre-release sale on the upcoming release his WindowSMART 2012 application. He is even handing out 5 free licenses to the first people to contact him. Home Server SMART is an invaluable tool when troubleshooting issues with your server and to give early warning in the event of impending hard drive issues, and the WindowSMART application will give the same benefit to your client PCs or other Windows servers.
Here’s an overview of his forum post, see the full post for all the details on the new release, special pricing, and even a discount for military service members.
As promised, Home Server SMART is and always will be free. WindowSMART, on the other hand, will be Shareware. WindowSMART will run for 30 days as a full-featured trial, after which it will need to be registered (purchase a license) or it will stop working. During the beta, this trial timer will NOT be enforced. If you purchase a license for WindowSMART before the production release, you will still need to update to the production release. July 31 is a hard-coded end for the beta builds.

Please send me a PM with your first and last name, business name (if you have one) and email address. The first 5 users to PM me will receive their free license via email.
