Hi ajmal,

Try the following applications. You will need to run this command from the Terminal (Applications->Accessories->Terminal)

  sudo apt-get install hddtemp lm-sensors

After you run this type 'sensors-detect' and press enter. You can then add a sensors applet to your gnome task bar to monitor the temp of your HDDs.

Let me know how this works out,
Good luck

Can you help with this problem?
