CrystalDiskInfo 8.6.1 is a small utility for monitoring the status of hard drives, monitoring the status of hard drives that support S.M.R.T. It monitors and provides an overall assessment of the “health” of your drive. It also displays detailed information about the hard drive installed in the computer (firmware, serial number, standard, interface, total operating time, etc.). Also displays the attributes of the S.M.A.R.T self diagnosis system. (read errors, performance, start / stop spindles, track search time, number of life cycles, sector errors, and more). Using CrystalDiskInfo, you can view detailed information about the drives installed on the computer, as well as a list of the S.M.A.R.T. self-diagnosis system parameters. This program supports localization, as well as removable themes. Additionally, the utility monitors parameter changes dynamically for all drives in the system and allows you to display them on a graph. There is support for external drives with USB and IEEE 1394 interfaces. A complete list of supported chips and controllers can be found on the official website (in more detail). Also applies the ability to control AAM and APM for external devices.
