Reviews for this release

Great software!

Most everything works great except for upgrading/updating an existing installation gets you separate shortcuts & folders for each version by default so just remove the version numbers when installing. When auto-running it on startup then it will start a scan immediately say once or twice a week instead of waiting till a better time. Very glad I'm using it now though since I discovered one of my drives is slowly dying so I have time to prepare & back things up on it. This GUI is tons easier to use than the command line tool, smartctl, that its based off of since you don't have to read up before using it.
