Windows – May CrystalDiskInfo SMART values be manipulated? smartctrl shows other values

hard drivesmartwindows 7

34865 is the value of smartctl and CrystalDiskInfo shows some 2300 hours.

Does it mean SMART values were manipulated?

Best Answer

Power_On_Hours is 2324 in smartctl and 2325 in CrystalDiskInfo. Looks okay to me.

       2324

Values 34865 refer to multiple errors like column LifeTime(hours) in Self-test log:
