I "install" it on every computer I touch

about CrystalDiskInfo · ·

I use the portable version, since it works out of the box, without the need of installation.

Lightweight and full of features is a must have to every computer that uses mechanical or SSD drives.

Lifesaver when the disk health is in danger and warns the user about the eminent failure.

32bit over 64bit version

about CrystalDiskInfo · ·

Be aware that the 32bit version has a lot more features (both 32 and 64 in zip (exe?)):
- Alerts
- Temperatures in notification area of task bar
- etc.

CrystalDiskInfo is an excellent S.M.A.R.T. diagnostic tool with full capabilities and a nice user interface. It's a shame it's flagged as unsafe here on AlternativeTo.net because it's a great piece of software, it just has an optional Conduit toolbar bundled with the .exe installer version.

Unfortunately nowadays that is not uncommon, even Java Runtime Environment does this with their McAfee etc. bundled crap on the installer.

Installer tries to sneak in Conduit spyware

The standard edition installer from http://crystalmark.info/download/index-e.html bundles the Conduit search protection spyware, beware.

Important to note!
Author provides 2 download sources, informs about that on his site and mention the differences between them (that the 'highlighted' version from 'sponsor' servers includes additional cr*p)...

This program is really nice. Use portable zip w/o ads.
(So stated on http://crystalmark.info/download/index-e.html )
