CrystalDiskInfo is a hard-disk health monitoring utility. If you need to be reassured on the health status of your hard disk, run CrystalDiskInfo and see if your computer becomes more responsive. You can also download CrystalDiskInfo Portable if you don't want to install it on all your computers.
It displays basic HDD information, monitors S. M. A. R. T. values, and disk temperature. You don’t have to do anything apart from running CrystalDiskInfo in order to have a health status report, stating temperature level, error rate, spin-up time and lots of other information which might be useful to know, especially for tech-savvy users.
Even if you are not tech-savvy, you might still find it cheerful to see written in a glossy blue box that your hard disk status is ‘Good’.
Unfortunately, there is no interaction with CrystalDiskInfo, it’s just a window with data and you can’t do much else with those.
There is a graph display, but it doesn’t seem particularly easy to understand it, if and when it works.
Although the figures given by CrystalDiskInfo can be hard to understand for non-tech-savvy users, you can still find out more about the technical characteristics of your hard disk and know easily if everything is ok with it. If you are looking for other free alternatives, we recommend you to download HD Tune or GSmartControl.
