Hard Disk Activity Monitor
A 10-LED indicator to show how hard it’s working
Published in issue 423, March 2012
Almost every PC case is fitted with an LED on the front panel which flickers whenever the hard disk(s) is accessed. A single flickering light is better than nothing at all but a 10-LED linear scale showing hard disk loading as a percentage would be really handy!
• A display using 10 LEDs indicates hard drive activity
• Displays hard drive activity in 10 % steps
• Crash proof operation (independent of PC software)
• Neat compact module fits easily inside a PC case
