    There isn't any built-in way, really.

    If your hdd is IDE, you can install the smartmontools FreeBSD package from the CLI (pkg_add -r smartmontools) and then run smartctl -a /dev/ <x>where <x>is your hdd device, e.g. ad0

    One of these days I need to make a package/widget for that.</x></x>
