CrystalDiskInfo is a comprehensive hard drive diagnostic tool which can test and display a number of parameters from the drive it has tested.
It's not just HDD drives which CrystalDiskInfo supports, in fact it can also obtain the relevant data from installed SSD drives as well. It does an excellent job at monitoring the health of your drive, making sure data isn't lost.
The installation of CrystalDiskInfo isn't complicated and once the application has been launched, you can start analyzing your drives. The main information provided at the start is as basic as the firmware, interface, drive letter and buffer size.
The most important data that it collects can be summarized as read error rate, spin-up time, start/stop count, seek error rate and other vital data to the health of the drive it's tested. CrystalDriveInfo can also be setup to send alerts by desktop, email or sounds. An event log is also accessible.
If you're looking for a powerful drive management and diagnostics tool, then CrystalDiskInfo is a great option that provides most of the relevant data from its S.M.A.R.T. analysis.Features and highlights
