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, plenty of 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 save? Simply download HDD Temperature from PalickSoft.
This utility comes in two versions - regular and pro. The regular version is intended for home users who have only single hard-drive and is totally free. Using S.M.A.R.T. technology included in all modern HDDs, HDD Temperature checks and monitors the temperature of your hard drives; you can also set the maximum value of drive temperature so that you will be warned should this temperature be exceeded.
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 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 certain computer in the network. Importantly, it can automatically force overheated system to hibernate, protecting both HDD and unsaved data. You also can run this application as network service, making this tool is ideal for corporate networks.
