CrystalDiskInfo is a HDD/SSD utility software which shows the health status much more clearly than similar tools.
The "Function / Graph" is especially interesting for the "Reallocated Sectors Count".
If it increases over time or is very high already, the hard drive may need to be replaced.

To install CrystalDiskInfo, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install crystaldiskinfo

To upgrade CrystalDiskInfo, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco upgrade crystaldiskinfo

Virus Scan Results

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
