    Clear Disk Info is a handy health info tool for storage devices


    Clear Disk Info is a free software program for Microsoft Windows devices that provides a clear view of health related information about connected storage devices.

    Keeping an eye on storage devices is essential when you work with computer systems. A storage device failure could lead to data loss or corruption of system files that prevent certain functionality or the system from booting at all.

    It is a good idea to create regular backups of important files to make sure that data is not lost when storage devices start to fail but keeping an eye on these devices to replace them before that happens is even better.

    Clear Disk Info can be run from any location after you have downloaded it from the developer website. The program scans all connected storage devices and displays them in its interface afterwards. It supports Solid State Drives, platter-based hard drives and Flash drives, and displays them in the sidebar on launch. You just need to make sure that the storage device is connected so that it can be analyzed. The listing is not refreshed automatically but you can enable that option in the menu or refresh on demand.

    Each storage device that is listed in the sidebar has its name, size, temperature, speed/life left, status, and powered-on hours listed next to it which should help identify the devices that you want to check out.

    Just select one of the devices displayed in the sidebar to see its values in the main area. The program helps users by highlighting important and critical bits of information, and using color codes.

    Critical and important information, e.g. the device's temperature, power-on hours, reallocated sectors or predicted failure, are highlighted with icons (yellow and red) and it is a good idea to start looking at these values first.

    Information that is highlighted in green indicates that the detected readings are okay and that there is no need to worry about those.

    You can go through the listing one-by-one easily to check the health of any of the devices listed in the sidebar; this makes Clear Disk Info a handy tool to quickly go through the S.M.A.R.T. readings of all connected storage devices.

    The menu lists options to check disks for errors, check and repair disks, and to optimize disks. Shortcuts are linked to these options for even faster access. The information can be exported to a text file using the menu as well.

    Closing Words


    Clear Disk Info is a straightforward program for Windows to check the health of all storage devices connected to the system it is run on. It may not be the most feature rich program for that but it is quick and easy to use.

    Now You: do you check/monitor the health of storage devices? (via Deskmodder)

    GPUz Incorrect Info GF117

    I've got the GT620M in a Zenbook and the newest version of GPUz has it listed as a 40nm part whereas all other info on the web suggests its 28nm. Can you investigate, W1z?

    Thanks

    I suggest you to use another tool : Hard Disk Sentinel , which is much better than CrystalDiskInfo !
