    What's a program that monitors a hard drive's life, temperature, and alerts when specified temperatures are exceeded? I've been looking, but all the programs I've found lack at least one of the above... Does anybody know of one that has all three? :x:

    I'm looking for something like HDDLife, but with temperature alerts. It displays the temp of each HD in the tray, along with HD life, but doesn't have temperature alerts, and updates the temperature at really long intervals.

    I'm interested in the HD life feature because I had a HD fail recently. Fortunately, I had just transferred the data off of it and was about to format it to put it into an xbox.
