I have ver0.3. :-P . I did try the newer version after that and saw that nag screen. Trashed it. I'm staying with old version. I hate nag screens.

Beware !
This is not a free program.
They have a nagging screen for payments which reminds everyday.
Do not install it unless you are prepared to bear with the foolish 'Donate' button attached and repeated nag screen.

I tried this and it works well. My only negative is it needs Admin Rights, making auto-startup a bit of a pain. I have been using an a similar little prog. called DriveGLEAM http://www.dirtcellar.net/software.php. Even though it's older, it has auto start to tray, and is more customizable as to which drives it monitors. Win 7 x64 - no issues.

Handy little app for a laptop with multiple partitions. Would like to see an option to ignore specific drives though - Having an SD card dedicated to ready boost and the system reserved drive it gives constant low space warnings, have to do without for now - otherwise does exactly what I need.

The app seems interesting but for some reason on XP it is scanning for drives every few seconds and it slows down the machine because I have a floppy (3.5") in there... ha! go figure.

This is a neat little app which needs a bit of polishing, but is very promising!

What's new in 0.2f:
- added "hide system tray icon" option

@sweathog: It's not just eye candy; it serves a useful purpose when your disk lights are hidden away in the computer under the desk, or within the closed screen of a laptop that's connected to external keyboard, mouse and display. Handy to be able to see if the disk is thrashing when the system seems unresponsive once in a while.

BTW, while Float LED looks promising, it's 25 times the size of this little utility.

This is simple eye candy, of course. So if that is the aim, Float LED, also free, is better. http://floatled.stone-oakvalley-studios.com/

Handy little tool (and it seems to already have an option to start with Windows).

If you need ideas for future versions, how about a "run when Windows starts" option?
