Defraggler now displays SMART disk data.

Check disk’s health while defragmenting it.

I just noticed that Piriform’s Defraggler program now includes a page that displays the disk’s SMART (Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology) data. This strikes me as a great idea: when I’m thinking about defragmenting a disk, I want to see how many hours the disk has run, and if it shows signs of imminent failure.

I’m not sure exactly when Piriform added the SMART data display to Defraggler. Version 2.07.346, which I just downloaded, has it. I don’t recall seeing the SMART page in previous versions. Way to go, Piriform!
