Refresh Pro FREE 6 Month Trial Version
ProGrade Digital’s Refresh Pro software - for both Windows and Mac - is both a health monitoring and sanitizing tool wrapped into a single application. It is uniquely developed for ProGrade Digital cards and workflow readers and is designed to ensure that card stability and optimal performance are always available to the demanding needs of our professional customers.
The first function of the Refresh Pro application provides the ability to check the underlying health of our memory cards by integrating the SMART attributes log contained in our controller. If a card has seen an excessive amount of usage, the attributes seen by the application are combined into an overall health score to alert the user of the cards suitability for continued usage. This health score effectively allows the user to know whether a memory card should be confidently used, cautiously used or replaced.
The second function of the Refresh Pro application utilizes a specific “sanitize” command to defragment and reformat the card to a factory new state. This state allows data to then be stored by cameras and other devices in the most optimal way following this refresh operation.
The Refresh Pro application is specifically designed to be used in conjunction with ProGrade Digital Workflow readers. The compatibility of cards and the application are identified by the unique branding that exists on the card and software and is recognizable by the icon below:
I read the supporting material before installing it on my Mac. It works as advertised without a hitch. I switched from Lexar when ProGrade first hit the market and have never looked back. It is without a doubt the best card on the market and the best reader. Fast write speed and dependability mean everything to me. The addition of the software is just one more reason to continue to purchase ProGrade products.
which is designed to work with ProGrade cards and readers. So I will use it with my ProGrade cards and reader.
Thought I would give this a try as it never hurts to check on the health of my cards and there was a 6-month trial free with my new card reader. Was stunned to find out this software only works with Prograde Digitals own cards! As I have a healthy catalogue of Lexar cards, and have no intention of buying Progrades own cards, this software is effectively useless for me. Uninstalled. C'mon Prograde, did you honestly expect to receive any sort of review on this if it only works with your own media? Very short-sighted.
Hi David, Thanks for your comments. The software only works with our cards and our readers because we had to build this technology into the software, the reader controller and the card firmware in order to do all the things that this software does. Unfortunately we can not control the firmware on Lexar, SanDisk or other cards. As you have probably seen, no one else has features like this software on the market. We hope that you will try it again with some new ProGrade cards when one of our promotions is running.
What is the reason to sell this software for money if you already bought the card? Activation does not work since I'm running Windows in a VM only, I'm using Linux for my main work. What I can see about the "fancy UI" looks like a time warp to the 90s.
Hi, we are sorry that you could not get the software to work, you are correct we do not support virtual machines for the installation of our software. The software is sold as a subscription because we continue to upgrade the features and this software is very unique in the industry with the benefits that it provides to photographers. If you switch from a VM, please give it a try and we think you will be happy with the results.
