DiskSmartView v1.21

  • Suggested by I am Baas

DiskSmartView is a small utility that retrieves useful insights on the health of your drives. The program uses standard diagnostic data from the "S.M.A.R.T," or Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology data drawn from IDE/SATA disks. This includes the model/firmware/serial number, cylinders/heads, power-on hours (POH), internal temperature, disk errors rate, and more.

This data can help you determine if there are any significant problems with your drive and whether it may be nearing end-of-life.

  • You can now turn on/off the features added on version 1.20 ('Use ATA Command' and 'Retrieve S.M.A.R.T from USB Drives') Be aware that the 'Use ATA Command' option is now turned off by default, because I got report that it caused a blue screen on RAID 1 system.

Disk Thruput Tester v2.10 R16

webfork on 4 Mar 2016
  • 302KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 12 Jan 2015
  • Suggested by Andrew Lee

Disk Thruput Tester (DiskTT) is a benchmarking tool analyzing the throughput of any disk. This is important because your actual disk performance is determined, not only by the speed of your hard drive as measured by most disk benchmarks, but also by the main board chipset, AHCI/UDMA/PIO mode, RAID configuration, CPU speed, RAM size, and the quality of drivers.

The program measures sequential read/write and random access speeds in megabytes/sec. You can set the size of the test file, the folder on the target disk to which test data will be written, cache settings, etc. Existing data on the target disk is not affected.

What's new? Changes up to v2.10 release 16
- Changed: get true free RAM on x64 systems.
- New: added the read/write mode to the random access test. The random read/write test alternates between read and write after each seek, so 5% of the file is randomly read and another 5% is randomly altered.
- Changed: increased the possible block size up to 100MB (99999KB); expect a write error on XP and older when using a >64MB blocksize.
Changes up to v2.02 release 15
- Reduced the number of random reads to 10%.
- Fixed freeze of progress bar updates and resulting 'program not responding' messages under Vista/7.Changes up to v2.02 release 15
- Reduced the number of random reads to 10%.
- Fixed freeze of progress bar updates and resulting 'program not responding' messages under Vista/7.
- Set programs priority to 'high' as an effort to minimize reported differences between measurements (if effective at all).

TestDisk v7.0

  • Suggested by AlephX

TestDisk is a powerful drive and data recovery software that is designed to help recover lost partitions and/or make non-booting disks bootable again. This can be caused by faulty software, certain types of viruses, or of course human error (such as accidentally deleting your partition table).

The program is cross-platform with recovery tools for a long list file systems and includes the also-portable recovery software PhotoRec.

Note: Use with caution; it's recommended that you read the documentation and take your time. The software can easily made dramatic and difficult-to-reverse system modifications.

@bzl333: TestDisk is a multi-platform tool, so it has to speak some kind of computing Esperanto -- Linux users would be as puzzled as you are if it was the other way around... so you're right, it's an expert tool, as noted above.

I'm sure this program is fantastic, if I can only figure out how to use it.
