CrystalDiskInfo is a comprehensive hard disk diagnostic tool that can test and display a set of tested drive parameters.
It’s not just the hdd drives that CrystalDiskInfo supports, in fact you can also get the relevant data from the installed SSDs as well. It does a great job of monitoring disk health, making sure that data is not lost.
Installing CrystalDiskInfo is not complicated, and once you start the application, you will be able to start scanning the drives. The main information provided at startup is basic such as firmware, interface, drive letter, and buffer size.
The most important data collected can be summarized as a percentage of read error, turn time, start/stop count, frequency of search failures, and other vital data for the status of the unit that was tested. CrystalDriveInfo can also be configured to send alerts via desktop, email, or sounds. You can also access an event log.
If you’re looking for a powerful drive management and diagnostics tool, CrystalDiskInfo is a great option that provides most of the relevant data from the S.M.A.R.T analysis.
