PassMark DiskCheckup is a disk diagnostic tool that monitors the disk drive for possible long term drive failure indicators via SMART sensors. This includes 'Spin Up Time', number of start/stops, number of hours powered on, and temperature all displayed with the threshold value for that attribute. Users can evaluate drive reliability by observing if the value is close to or below the threshold.

It is recommended that system drives at threshold be replaced or shifted to backup / redundant data storage.

Good for servers where uptime is critical, this program can provide some warning for when a drive is about to die. Unfortunately, how or if it works is something of a mystery. The program claims that it will notify the user (via popup or e-mail) if a condition arises that could be a prelude to failure but there is no test sequence or good/bad status.

While a very detailed and useful program, a system that would give a green, yellow, or red light status picture concerning a hard drive with some sort of "advanced" tab would have been nice. This program gives the user an ENORMOUS amount of information on their drive without clearly explaining what it means or if the drive is "good".

Haven't tested it yet, but the primary change from v2.1 to 3.0 appears to be support for external USB-connected drives.

CrystalDiskInfo has done supported this for quite awhile, and has much better notification ability.

You need to update Inno Setup Unpacker in the bin folder of Universal Extractor.
