Drives Meter 4.3

Monitor the total, free and occupied space on your disk, and check out the current reading and writing speed, while customizing the UI
Drives Meter is a lightweight and simple gadget that shows on your desktop the used and free space on the hard drive, along with other handy information. It addresses all users who want to take better care of their computer, by monitoring their hard drive capacity.

The GUI of the widget is based on a small frame that can be moved to any position on the screen, with the help of the mouse cursor.

Aside from the total, used and free space on the hard drive, Drives Meter shows a graphical representation of the reading and writing speed evolution.

Plenty of settings can be changed from the Options menu. You can select the refresh rate, enable sound alerts, choose which local drive to keep an eye on, adjust the volume level and set repeat mode.

But you can also alter the frame size, disable the graph or change the drawing style, pick the history scale type, as well as modify the default colors for the background, title, alert icon and other fields. These are just a few of the options provided by Drives Meter.

The widget is very light on the system resources, using a minimal quantity of CPU and RAM. It has a good response time to commands, and works well, without causing the OS to hang, crash or pop up error dialogs. Thanks to its intuitive layout, yet rich options, Drives Meter should meet the requirements of all users, regardless of their skill level.
