Keyboard short cuts to files on the filer is a commendable idea.

One minor correction Select does *not* offer SATA (Serial ATA a serial rather than parallel bus for hard disks- which requires special hardware and offers potential speed increases) - but rather SMART - an access and performance monitoring system built into the modern disk drives. If the drive starts taking too long accessing sector(s) [indicative of an error or impeding failure] then SMART will show this up.

If RO Select offers a *warning* on impending drive failure that would be a useful feature, of course this should really not be necessary as we all keep backups don't we :)
