The problem of overheating is a vital problem for most modern HDDs, since they are constantly evolving and their capacity and speed are improving. Not everyone knows that when the temperature of the hard disk rises higher than 50-60 degrees centigrade, its reliability decreases significantly and that a fatal failure as well as total data loss may occur.
How to check hard drive temperature and protect your hard disk from overheating?
We suggest to install Active SMART on your PC.
Download ActiveSMART with HDD temperature monitor
Besides monitoring the hard drive health status Active SMART provides control of the disk temperature so the data stored on them is always safe. You can find the current hard drive temperature on the main Overview tab.
When the hdd temperature exceeds safe condition ActiveSMART notifies you about that.
Even more, you can check how the hard drive temperature changes over the time. Just open Disk Temperature tab and choose the time period (see the screenshot below):
