Gadget or ..?? (want to see HDD space on desktop)

Hello I am new on this site so please bare with me!
I am looking for a program or gadget, don't really know if both would work.. but. I'd like to be able to see how much space there is left on my two HDD's and perhaps if there is something to show the CPU usage!

Thanks in advance!

Hi and welcome

If you look in the customization section here there are gadgets that do precisely that


Good luck

Kencelot, thank you for the link

Digi, yours looks sweet! but is there any way to connect the media player to foobar? mine only seems to react on winamp which I don't use.

I've also got another little problem, my clock doesn't want to show the right date and time .. I've tried to make it follow some sort of internet clock, and i've also tried to just set the right GMT. It works for a day or two but then again something makes my clock just to show the wrong time, for example. Atm my clock shows
"19:52 - 2010-01-07".
