     368=== What is the purpose of the command {{{smartctl-nc}}} on Windows? ===
     369
     370The file {{{smartctl-nc.exe}}} ('''n'''o '''c'''onsole) from the smartmontools Windows package is a copy of {{{smartctl.exe}}} with the SUBSYSTEM type in the EXE header changed from CONSOLE to GUI. This prevents that an empty console window is opened when the command is run in background with output redirected. GSmartControl uses this command for this purpose. When {{{smartctl-nc}}} is run without redirection from a console window, its output is not visible because Windows detaches the program from the console.
