Neither HDTune 2.53, nor HDTune Pro 3.50 ever detected the SMART parameters of my internal laptop drive (a Hitachi HTS721060G9SA00). HDDScan and CrystalDiskInfo detected them fine.

Very nice little program. Swiss army knife of HD software.

I was worried that this program writes to the registry (HKLM\HDTune), but you can avoid this by NEVER changing the default options/configurations. You can look at the options, just DO NOT click OK. There are very few options anyways and the default options are fine.

The only registry entries left will be the regular entries for recently used documents, recent files, MRU, etc. But these cannot be avoided because they are Microsoft generated.

Cpu usage reported is very high compared to HD Tach (, something is clearly wrong with HD Tune (2.52).
Tested on HP Pavilion (Centrino 1.5 GHz)
