2 disk related utilities added to NirSoft

2 disk related utilities added to NirSoft in the last week. The first one, DiskCountersView, displays the system counters of each disk drive in your system, including the total number of read/write operations and the total number of read/write bytes. It also displays general drive information, like disk name, partition number, partition location, and so on.



The second utility, DiskSmartView, retrieves the S.M.A.R.T information (S.M.A.R.T = Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology) from IDE/SATA disks. This information includes the disk model/firmware/serial number, cylinders/heads, power-on hours (POH), internal temperature, disk errors rate, and more. You can use the S.M.A.R.T information retrieved by DiskSmartView to find out whether there is any significant problem in your disk drive.



Both utilities are already included in the latest release of NirLauncher package at http://launcher.nirsoft.net

    Man, your tools plainly rock! Love them! Why? Because I can have a bunch of small and 100% effective indispensable tools for Windows related and some hardware related diagnostics and tuning in such a small space consuming folder wherever I go and they don’t mess up Windows at all. I’d especially thank you for the FileTypesManager, ShellExtensionsView, this DiskSmartView and various password viewers as so many users tend to forget their passwords. I wish more programmers would use your philosophy of making programs. No fancy graphics, utterly stupid wizards and huge icons and pictures… just what you really need – a program which works! [and don’t mess up with Windows registry, user folders and common folders :)].

    Thank you big time for making them and making them available for free! I simply cannot find the words the express my gratitude for these tools.

    As a software developer for 14 years, I stand in awe of your enormous catalogue of excellent work. Have you considered a section in your blog about the s/w development side of what you do? I think it would be an inspiration to both up and coming and seasoned developers everywhere.

    Nice work!
