HDDLife is a freeware plugin for Google Desktop that constantly monitors a vast range of your hard drive's parameters. By collecting statistical data from your drive operations, HDDLife can forecast hardware problems. It will alert you when your drive is close to a crash. This allows you to prevent the loss of your precious files. You will always know your drive's condition by taking a quick look at Google Sidebar. HDDLife draws green, yellow and red icons which indicate the condition of your drives at the moment.
Most Google Desktop tools are involved with the monitoring of on-line resources. However, you shouldn't forget about your own PC's health. Without a working hard drive, all remote resources will be totally inaccessible.
Did you know that hard drives are quite sensitive to heat? A rise in temperature by 10 degrees may halve your drive's life expectancy. HDDLife helps you quickly diagnose heating problems and prolong the life of your hardware. In addition to the status icons for each drive shown on Google Sidebar, you will also see your hard drive temperature.
