    The software certainly looks pretty (looks identical to WMP). Gonna give it a try. But to be honest the only software that I really trust is SpinRite. Its the grand dady of all HD tools and is still the best by far for diagnostics as well as repair.

    For SMART I use CrystalDiskInfo (those guys have a separate tool called CrystalDiskMark for benchmark).

    We have released a new version of HDDScan – v.3.3.

    This version includes Windows 7 and Vista support and works with SSD!

    Thank you for great article and feel free to visit HDDScan.com to get a new version :)

    All the best,

    Just forgot to mention:

    since you liked the article about HDD “anatomy”, you may be interested in our new article about simple data recovery:


    (but it’s less technical and can be useful for newbies trying to rescue their lost files)
