Is this someway better than HDD Health?

Mopah 2008-09-28 05:54

Vista support, okay. Anything else? :)

HDD Health told me both my drives were 100% healthy, -1degree Celsius, and didn't list any S.M.A.R.T attributes (Basically didn't work at all).

This app worked on all my drives (even one which was connected through an SATA/PATA adapter) and gave me a "Caution" state on one of my drives for high "Reallocated Sectors Count" prompting me to replace the drive.

So yes, I'd say it's in SOME way better.

The latest version 2.0 crashes on my laptop (vista, standard setup now days)

Love these "Crystal Dew World" programs! This one RELIABLY retrieved Hard Drive S.M.A.R.T. info from IDE & SATA Drives, Internal and External, including through USB (most don't)!
Several NICE Programs at , including a cool Benchmark/SysInfo program, "CrystalMark 2004".
I have NOT check them all out for Portability, but IMO, they're worth a look! ;)

The latest version still crashes on my machine running same setup as last time (HP Pavilion dv5, Vista Home Premium 32bit SP1). I've never been a fan of those "reCAPTURE" thingies, it's kind of disapointing to see it implemented on this website too.

This application seems to be using the industry manufacturing standard in measuring disk size not the base 1,024 used by every Micro$oft PC.

It seems to be using 1,000 as a base rather than the (?programmers?) accepted standard of 1,024.

1 Gigabyte at 1024 = 1,073,741,824 bytes
1 gigabyte at 1000 = 1,000,000,000 bytes
A difference of = 73,741,824 bytes
Please tell me if this is wrong because the only other answer I can come up with is the disk has a large unused space on it.

I use WinXP SP3, default browser 'Firefox', CrystalDiskInfo 2.04 - I can't start CrystalDiskInfo, it crashes immediately.
What's wrong with it?

Can read S.M.A.R.T. from disc connected to RAID!, others program don't (for example HDD Health doesn't recognize my RAID)

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

cosgrove 2009-09-28 13:21


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.

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.

@LucheLibre: The latest zip file (3.5.3a) can be found here:

Recognizes only one of two HDDs in my PC...(v4.0.2)


bzl333 2011-09-01 01:27

it has OpenCandy bundled with it now according to that Gizmo site.

Woked fine on my USB storage drive-Hallers version at portable apps better,cleans up itself,slick program.


SYSTEM 2012-09-26 14:31

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