    My computer is about 5 years old and I haven't had any serious problems, but it's been lagging a little. I wanted to see what kind of shape the drive was in so I downloaded CrystalDiskInfo... unfortunately I have no idea how to interpret the data.

    Judging from these values, is the drive in good health?

    It is tough, each hard drive manufacturer has different firmware for SMART data, so the data can mean different things from different manufacturers.
