Retrive Low-Level Hard Drive Information(2)
Version Compatibility: Visual Basic 6
Here is an application to get low level HDD info. It has been tested on w95(OSR2)/98/NT/2000. At the least, Primary master HDD info is available, including HDD temperature, HDD buffersize(KB) and lifetime; SMART rawdata. Note for w95/98 users: For some reason, MS didn't include the smartvsd.vxd driver in some versions. It may be present, may not. Check your %windows%system\iosubsys folder for smartvsd.vxd. If this file is not present in this folder, just copy it from the included ZIP file into the above folder and reboot your machine.
Instructions: Click the link below to download the code. Select 'Save' from the IE popup dialog. Once downloaded, open the .zip file from your local drive using WinZip or a comparable program to view the contents.
