Description: There are many reasons why hard-drives get damaged, and overheating is probably the most common one. If you remember your physics lessons well, you know that spinning something at several thousand revolutions per minute causes heat. That is why servers and computers have coolers, fans and other gadgets that prevent overheating. But as fans get plugged, coolers stop working, or too many hard-drives get added - the risk of "frying" your HDDs and losing data increases drastically. So how do you monitor your HDD temperature to make sure you data is always safe? Simply download HDD Temperature from PalickSoft.
HDD Temperature is a freeware intended for home users who have only single hard-drive. Using S.M.A.R.T. technology included in all modern HDDs, this tool checks and monitors the temperature of your hard drives; you can set the maximum value of drive temperature exceeding which will trigger an alarm.
S.M.A.R.T. stands for "Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology" and is currently the most advanced technology in this field; this technology was developed by the HDD manufacturers and is supported by IBM, Maxtor, Seagate, Hitachi and many others.
HDD Temperature Pro is created specially for small and large companies that have many computers and need to monitor multiple hard-drives. This "beefed up" version has several features that the regular version does not. For example, it can monitor several HDDs simultaneously and can send warning messages to a specified e-mail address or to a certain computer in the network. Importantly, it can automatically force the overheated system to hibernate, protecting both HDD and unsaved data. You can also run this application as a network service, which makes this tool ideal for the corporate networks.
HDD Temp SCSI is a specialty version of the software that monitors SCSI server hard-drives and protects valuable data from getting damaged.
