Interestingly, the app displays HDD spin up time, raw read error rate, power-on hours count, and power-off retract count. Your HDD real-time temperature is displayed on the system tray so that it does not obstruct other active windows. Finally, you can export the S.M.A.R.T. information as a .txt file to any storage drive of your choice.
