    Smile SMART Hard Disk health status in windows 8.1 & 10

    I have little old disk in my computer and I learned recently that you can get to know about health of disk from the S.M.A.R.T data. When I searched, I found that it is available as command line utility for linux and comes bundled with it but on windows can not find anything similar. So how do I se SMART disk stats in windows 8.1 or windows 10 ?

    If there is any command line utility then please do mention about it.

    There are plenty of tools for SMART tests in windows, you may try

    HDDScan free HDD diagnostic utility
    Ver. 3.3 - DOWNLOAD

    HDDScan is a freeware utility for hard drive diagnostics (RAID arrays, Flash USB and SSD drives are also supported). The program can test storage device for errors (Bad-blocks and bad sectors), show S.M.A.R.T. attributes and change some HDD parameters such as AAM, APM, etc.

    HDDScan can be useful for performing the regular "health test" for your drive and predicting its degradation, so you will be able to prevent data loss and backup your files before you will have to contact the data recovery service.

    Additionally, software can be used as the hard disk temperature monitor and reading/writing benchmark performance graph is displayed for every test.

    Then other I suggest is smartmontools
    It is defacto tool for linux for SMART management, but it is supposed to be used from command line only. It is though quite easy to use it.
