Hi

How do I get the harddisk drive's temperature?

You'll need to either get a 3rd party program that does it and interface with that, or find a driver specific to your chipset. It's not something that Windows monitors right off the bat. (Hard Drive temperature. CPU temp is monitorable.)

Hey, cool. Hadn't encountered that one before, and thought I'd researched fairly thoroughly. Thanks for the link, BrettF!

Hi

Thank you!

CrhisL: looks cool, but it seems that the S.M.A.R.T. option requires an additional program..

on the other hand BrettF's method will not need an additional program.

BrettF: any chance you got that code in AutoIt?

You didn't read all the pages like I told you, later on in the topic it uses WMI to get the smart data, no external tools required :)

I went over the code,

and I must admit,

It is not easy to isolate the part that I need..

Is there a chance anyone has done it, and can paste it here?

I just need to check the HDD temperture,

and I will do it every several minutes(automatically), so I can Alert in case the temp exceeds a defined threshold.
