Might be worth staying on the previous release if you have a Samsung SSD like the very popular EVO. Why wouldn't you want to have the health the % available???

@rodger123: This "worse" version only leaves files in Internet Explorer's cache. IMHO, the overhead caused by Launcher is not worth it.

The portable version of this app is still at 3.3.0. The installable is at 3.5.2. If that's what you want us to download, then the instructions need to be changed.

The app DOES use 1 GB = 1,000,000,000 bytes. It says so in the help file - go to Help, How to Use, Main Window, general information.

Mopah - I think it's better. HDD Health doesn't give ANY info on external USB drives on my system, but Crystal does.
