CrystalDiskInfo is a good program, don't let the installer put you off

Positive Comment by Windows2000
about CrystalDiskInfo Oct 2014

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.
