This package was approved by moderator purity on 12/10/2014.

GSmartControl is a graphical user interface (GUI) 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.

GSmartControl supports ATA drives (both PATA and SATA), various USB to ATA bridges and drives behind some RAID controllers (selected models of 3ware, Areca, Adaptec, Intel RAID controllers). See smartmontools USB support overview for an (incomplete) list of supported USB to ATA bridges.

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

C:\> choco install gsmartcontrol

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

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.
