Hard Disk Alarm
By Brian Bernacki
May 1, 1990
PROGRAM PURPOSE: This program was created for people who have
small hard disks or who quickly fill up their hard disks. The
program will automatically notify you when your hard disk's
available free space drops below a number you set. I feel this
program is very handy for heavy downloaders, small hard disk
users, and sysops.
INSTRUCTIONS: This program is rather easy to use and very
efficient. It should be placed in a directory that your AUTOEXEC
goes to (x:\DOS) or you may just put it in your root directory.
Then slip in a line in your AUTOEXEC.BAT that says "HDALARM" the
closest to the end the better. That's about it. If the program
checks your hard disk and it's ok it just tells you the total
available space, space left, and how much space till you reach
the minimum. If it finds you reached your minimum it display's
some stat's and then sounds an optional alarm.
HDALARM COMMANDS: There are really only two major commands,
x:\ HDALARM /SETUP or x:\HDALARM /setup
----> Use this command to set up Hard Disk Alarm's options to
your needs. You should do this command first.
x:\ HDALARM /INFO or x:\HDALARM /info
----> Use this command to see some brief information about this
program. (Date compiled, version number, etc...)
Notes: When entering parameter's to the program they must
be in all upper case or lower case letters! Hard Disk
Alarm will create a file called "HDALARM.DAT". This file
holds the options table if this file is missing or bad,
just erase it and reinstall the program. (HDALARM /SETUP)
Please look for new versions which I plan for the future they
will include new and handy features.
