GSmartControl is a Hard disk drive and SSD health inspection tool

Quote
GSmart Control is a graphical user interface for smartctl (from smartmontools package), which is a tool for querying and controlling SMART (Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology) data on modern hard disk and solid-state drives. It allows you to inspect the drive's SMART data to determine its health, as well as run various tests on it.

GSmart Control supports ATA drives (both PATA and SATA), various USB to ATA bridges and drives behind some RAID controllers. See Smartmontools USB Device Support page for an (incomplete) list of supported USB to ATA bridges.

Supported RAID controllers:

    Adaptec (Linux, some models only)
    Areca (Linux, Windows)
    HP CCISS (Linux)
    HP hpsa / hpahcisr (Linux)
    Intel Matrix Storage (CSMI) (Linux, Windows, FreeBSD)
    LSI 3ware (Linux, Windows)
    LSI MegaRAID (Windows)

Note: Smartmontools supports even more RAID Controllers. The drives behind such controllers can be manually added to GSmartControl using "Add Device..." functionality or
Code: [Select]
--add-device command-line option.

Features

    automatically reports and highlights any anomalies;
    allows enabling/disabling SMART;
    allows enabling/disabling Automatic Offline Data Collection - a short self-check that the drive will perform automatically every four hours with no impact on performance;
    supports configuration of global and per-drive options for smartctl;
    performs SMART self-tests;
    displays drive identity information, capabilities, attributes, device statistics, etc...;
    can read in smartctl output from a saved file, interpreting it as a read-only virtual device;
    works on most smartctl-supported operating systems;
    has extensive help information.
