DiskAlarm is a small application that lets you view your computer or laptop’s Hard Disk Drive’s current temperature and alarms you if temperature exceeds from the given value. It works in real time, as temperature keeps changing, it keeps updating you live. On launch, it asks for setting the temperature value, which once selected can also be edited at later time. You can select the temperature in any of the formats – Celsius and Fahrenheit. In case hard drive’s current temperature exceeds from the set value, it gives sounds and visual warning.
You can also set your own audio sound which will be played as an alarm. Hit Options button available on the GUI to expand the window containing different setting options.
Log files are automatically maintained containing all necessary information. Run time updates telling hard drive temperature change after each 30 seconds along with other DiskAlarm events are saved in log files which can be viewed through Log tab. Just a small note, it requires .NET framework 2.0 installed in your system.
According to developer of this tool, it works on all version of Windows, but I found this error while running in on Windows 7 32bit OS. Furthermore it didn’t work properly for me. Share your experience if it worked at your machine running on Windows 7.
