gsmartcontrol for Windows to Check the SMART S.M.A.R.T status

gsmartcontrol is a free tool that let's you see the status of the SMART parameters so you can check things like temperature, reallocated sectors, bad sectors etc.. to give you a better idea of your drive health.

Download it here.

gsmartcontrol is a very useful tool in Windows to check your HDD / Hard Drive health status.

In my experience you should NEVER trust that everything is OK just because SMART says  it has passed the health check.
