I'm looking for a copy of HDAPM to help with my macbook pro's HD noise from a new 320gb WD Scorpio Black. But the website seems to be down.

Anyone have a copy or know where I can get a copy?

Much thanks!

The address worked for me. Here's the link for the file: hdapm

Some info from that website...

It can be used to:

* eliminate "clicking when idle" noises exhibited by some laptop hard drives
* make a drive save more power and spin down more aggressively that in does with the default OS settings.


MacOS 10.4 or 10.5. ATA/SATA hard disk with APM support. Does not work with USB or Firewire attached drives.
