LAlarm is free laptop alarm security software, which sounds an alarm when a laptop is in danger of being stolen or losing data, and it destroys data if the laptop is stolen. LAlarm protects laptop and precious data against theft. It also prevents laptop failure and data loss due to HDD (hard disk drive) errors and sudden power loss. 1) Protect laptop against theft.

If error or damage is detected at an early stage, it could be repaired before becoming a more serious problem and prevent serious data loss. LAlarm alerts the user of both physical and logical disk problems. 4) Prevent laptop failure. Hard disk drive problem is a common cause of laptop failure.

LAlarm alerts when a possible sudden power loss is imminent. The user will then be able to save the data and shutdown the computer properly and/or switch to the AC power. LAlarm not only helps prevent data loss but also the hardware damage because a sudden power loss could damage the laptop hardware and corrupt data. 6) And more...
