Closed: HDD Guardian – Home

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/08/16

Too bad: it was fun while it lasted.

Mid april 2017 [WayBackHDD Guardian – Home closed down, so the latest commit removed all the [WayBackHDD Guardian – Source Code.

HDD Guardian provides a Windows front-end for smartctl, a utility which monitors your hard drive(s) and SSD(s) for health status, taking advantage of S.M.AR.T.

The WayBack machine and Archive.is have archived some links though:

Anyone interested in getting it before codeplex itself shuts down:

git svn clone https://hddguardian.svn.codeplex.com/svn

wget for nirsoft

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/08/11

Since they require a referer:

wget --referer=http://launcher.nirsoft.net/downloads/ -m -np http://download.nirsoft.net/nirsoft_package_1.20.10.zip
wget --referer=http://launcher.nirsoft.net/downloads/ -m -np http://download2.nirsoft.net/nirsoft_package_enc_1.20.10.zip

The latter has password nirsoft9876$

The filenames change over time (the 2016 archive of http://launcher.nirsoft.net/downloads/ shows http://download.nirsoft.net/nirsoft_package_1.20.5.zip and http://download2.nirsoft.net/nirsoft_package_enc_1.20.5.zip

Need to check out if I can automate this, as they seem to keep a SysInternals link http://download.nirsoft.net/sysinternals4.nlp
