HDD Health - hard disk temperature monitor and fault prediction agent

HDD Health is a simple but useful freeware. It monitors your physical hard disk drives by using an agent that will interface with built-in hard disk S.M.A.R.T (Self Monitoring and Reporting Technology) feature, make a prediction and alert users in case of any impending hard disk failure. Alerts can be set from the options menu to be displayed as a pop up message, a network log, or by sending notifications to an email address.

Most of the time, I use HDD Health to monitor current hard disk temperature, in case any overheating occurs. The temperature threshold, agent polling time and time checking interval for HDD Health can be set at any time. Other than that, this freeware offers detailed, extended information on your hard disks that you won't think existed before.
