Free SMART software

I know it sounds cheeky but I have considerable outlay this month and my free trial of Active SMART has ended.
Is there anything free out there, HDD temps is my main concern.

Cheers in advance

what if you uninstall the proggy and then reinstall it. Or is that to simplistic?

just a bit, trial software knows if you have had it installed previously.

Thanks anyway.

I have found numerous free software but none of it seems to work to good. I even downloaded the IBM/Hitachi own SMART utility which only works with their drives but for some reason it said I dont have an IBM drive, funny seeing as I do!

The Western Digital website has all the diagnostic software for download - as far as I am aware it should work with all SMART equipped HDDs, but I could be mistaken..:-(
