hexploder Small, easy, complete, don't know how to use it just smartctl -h or man smartctl and you will have all the documentation you need.
Diskscan is intended to provide the information needed to decide if a disk is good or not, be it an HDD or an SSD it is likely to be holding important data and if you have a suspicion that it is failing it is also important to know how bad is it down the road.
