I'd like to be able to access the local harddrive's IDE S.M.A.R.T. values.
I've been downloading specs and sample code (VC++).
The following resources exist, and I've downloaded them and will start working on them tonight:
SMART IOCTL API Specification - http://www.microsoft.com/hwdev/archive/download/respec/iocltapi.rtf
Basically, I don't know where to begin (yet) or how to translate VC++ code to VB. 500 points to anyone that can give me a good starting position. I'm developing for Win2K/XP.
