@sawcio,

Indeed, with the obligatory presence of CrystalDiskInfo software, your solution remains interesting only in your case ...

It is a big machinery to retrieve something basic enough simple !

I just tried your CrystalDiskInfo software with my hardware :

There are many values reported for PowerOnCount in Smart.ini but they are not good.

In this case, you have to find something else ...

Sorry,

it's PowerOnHours value and not PowerOnCount !

> The same value is in PowerOnHours​.cvs file : 2018/01/21 13:10:50,5655

In my case, it works for SSD and HDD !

Hi @mickythekiller,

yes, smartctl on Linux... and on Windows ? (cf. "C:\Program Files (x86)\CrystalDiskInfo")

Thanks Guys,

I've checked it, and it looks like smartmontools is better , lighter and also has preapared PS script to send info via email. So I've got another Job, change CrystalDisk on all PC's for smartmontools and configure it.....
