I use Crystal Disk Info, Crystal Disk Mark and HiBit Uninstaller/Tools (junk files cleanup). I also use a lot of Admin. cmd and Storage Sense, esp. after Windows updates. I use Event Viewer and Reiliability Monitor in Control Panel/Maintenance to check for hardware errors occasionally.

I find these not just useful but necessary, esp. if I have a suspicion something is wrong. Since I only have one drive (an ssd) installed, I use the Crystal Disk software and Admin chkdsk /f/r to evaluate now and then.

Making use of Windows built-in stuff means I don't have to keep a lot of third party software on the drive just sitting there doing nothing.
