Report misleading

An information application to monitor the status of HDDs and certain other media that are connected to Windows. The program monitors and stores information about the current state of hard drives. During the operation of the CrystalDiskInfo, detailed information about the status of "hard drives" (HDD) is displayed, and their operation and temperature are monitored. The CrystalDiskInfo application uses the data from the built-in S.M.A.R.T. function to work. (Self-monitoring, analysis and reporting technology) This technology is a built-in BIOS function by default for each motherboard of a personal computer. S.M.A.R.T. can be disabled from the BIOS interface if desired.

The program displays detailed information about the state of the hard drives, as well as data such as the serial number of the hard drive, its standard and interface, the total time of accounting (read from S.M.A.R.T.), the file system, the number of areas, etc. In addition, CrystalDiskInfo keeps track of the performance of the hard drives and provides real-time reporting of drive read errors, current performance of each connected device, on/off cycles, and many other features. In addition, the program implements functions of hard disk management, such as APM and AAM. (Advanced Power Management is a tool for configuring the power consumption of the device. The APM function determines the power status of the system and of each individual device (in this case the hard disk drive) and defines the power consumption parameters. Automatic Acoustic Management is a disabled function of hard disks by default, which allows you to reduce disk noise by reducing the speed of disk operation. This function is available for all modern ATA hard drives.

- Monitoring the status and performance of solid state media;

- Constant monitoring of HDD errors;

- Temperature control of installed hard drives;

- support for external USB devices (newer versions of the program);

- reading data from S.M.A.R.T;

- HDD noise control using the AAM function;

- Hard disk power management (APM);

- Notification of HDD operation by mail (convenient for remote administration of large databases).

CrystalDiskInfo this application monitors HDD status! even though all computers have disk status program on bios this is a better way for those who are not very computer savvy can use this program within windows
I think the description is good. I do think, though, that it could be simplified a little bit more. I don't come from a computer savvy background but know a little bit about computers, and it seems like there's a lot of "jargon" language in it. Overall though it is written well and proper grammar is used.
CrystalDiskInfo is a free HDD health monitoring software for Windows. It displays basic HDD information, monitors S.M.A.R.T. values, and disk temperature
Thanks to the CrystalDiskInfo application, my computer's hard drive has been working correctly and the most important thing is that it helps me detect possible disk errors and thus avoid losing important information about my daily activities, including from my work to family files. . Thanks to its color scheme I can see how the temperature is and if it exceeds the limits I know that I must act immediately
learn how to interpret the Current, Worst, and Threshold column values in relation to each other and determine an indication of problem with severity level. Especially I didn’t get what it’s and how to interpret the Threshold value. If anyone knows, it would be gladly appreciated.
