HddLed Indicator

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
This tiny application lets you perform real-time monitoring of read and write activities on your hard disk, but its display isn't overly appealing. HddLed is the virtual counterpart of the LED on your PC case. This program appears as a small blinking indicator on the upper-left part of the screen and monitors numerous logical hard drives installed on your computer.

In All-In-One mode, the LED represents system memory and CPU usage as well. Hovering your mouse over the LED gives a real-time numerical reading of the read and write performances in megabytes. It comes with some aesthetic pleasantries that let you customize transparency and colors of the onscreen LED lights.

As a nice feature, you can have your Scroll Lock key or the system-tray icon flash every time read or write activity occurs. We recommend HddLed to anyone seeking an easy-to-use monitoring tool that doesn't take up too much space or use too many resources.

Developer's Description

Software tool to monitor hard drives and logical disks activity. A small indicator on the screen will blink the same way as a hardware LED on a PC. A good replacement for the hardware HDD LED, especially when your pc case is not directly visible. HddLed Indicator includes an All-in-One mode, where all drive activity is monitored on a single indicator. The program uses little system memory and CPU time. Additional modes provide indications using the keyboard ScrollLock LED and an icon in system notification area (tray).
