Windows 7: Can you identify these gadgets?

Can you identify these gadgets?

I recently did a secure erase of my SSDs and I thought a simple screen shot would help me identify my gadgets and restore them. Sadly that has not been the case and I can not determine what gadgets these are. I believe some or all may be legacy gadgets. I am about 99% sure on the drive meter. If any one is still using these legacy versions, or knows the proper gadget names, I would very much appreciate it if you would share the gadget or show me where I can obtain it. I have searched through the live gallery and am not satisfied with the alternative/newer gadgets for one reason or another. For example, Drives Meter from addgadget.com only supports 4 hard drives. I need support for 5.Aside from this gadget, the other drive info gadgets are to big and bulky. Same for GPU Meter gadgets.

Boohbah, thank you very much for your quick reply. Thats one gadget down! The Simply Weather gadget was spot on. Odd I couldnt find it on the gallery when I searched for weather :s.

As for Drives Meter I am currently using that one, but I am pretty sure the one I was using previously was simply a legacy version of it. I tried to use the addgadget.com site to contact the devloper but it seems the contact us form is broken.

I believe the same goes for the GPU Meter. It doesnt quite resemble that screen shot anymore. Like the Drive Meter gadget, this was the next best thing to the exact one I was using. I suppose I will try to contact the developer on this one as well in hopes of receiving a legacy version. However, in the mean time if some one is still using these specific versions, I would greatly appreciate it if you were to share the gadget.

no problem, i think the gadgets have probably been updated since you first had them so they are slightly different.
how about this for the drive meter it will show unlimited drives and up to seven when undocked

Well, the background is not the most pleasing, but I imagine I can get in there and hack that myself . Thanks for that though. It is far more compact then the other drive meter gadgets which is important to me.

Also in regards to the GPU Meter gadget, well good news,like I said I was already using it, but after about 5 minuets or so of tweaking, I was actually able to customize it to look exactly like the one I pictured using the built in options menu.

Two down, the HDD Monitor will do for now, but hopefully some one can shre this since the devs contacts form on his site is broken.

Thanks again for your help!
