    "Small and nice tool to check you disk"

    July 24, 2013  |   By Daniel_L

    Version: Ariolic Disk Scanner 1.4.0.19

    Pros

    - It's small
    - it doesn't require any installation
    - it shows broken files

    Cons

    I'd like to have the main screen resizable.

    Summary

    It scans drives, and does it very good. I recommend it.

    "False Virus Alert Fixed - Still a Good Trusted App!!"

    November 8, 2011  |   By YZH777

    Version: Ariolic Disk Scanner 1.4.0.19

    Pros

    - Raw read to test for if areas on a hard drive may be close to failing or about to fail.

    - Obviously check for and detect areas already failed or failing (bad sectors).

    - Very compact software with no bloatware and no install.

    - No install needed which means run any time needed on any drive without leaving install files or junk in the registry for you to clean up (uninstall) later.

    - Solid software company with a history of being solid. eg selling software to large manufacturers such as Seagate. (Unlikely to produce software with containing viruses/malware)

    Cons

    - Small graphical things could be fixed up like the map legend which shows what the green and red boxed mean being a bit obscured once the scanning process has started but nothing big.

    - Software could have more features or info displaying the data or state of the hard drive but then I understand that why this software is free if you want more features that's how they sell their pay software.

    Summary

    To summarise this is a great, simple, free app!
    No problems downloading just click the link then run the cnet downloaded and it will download the Disk Scanner software. I can confirm that the cnet download app contains no virus and neither does the Disk Scanner 1.4 software when scanned with the latest virus update from Avast 9-Nov-2011. I found multiple sites offering this download advertising a range of virus software that had found no virus. I also found this page where it explains that a false positive was reported by Avast Virus Scanner late last year and then Avast fixed the problem with their Virus Scanner. Here's the link: http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=68436.0
