Default Hd led - 09-21-2009, 06:06 PM

The lack of an LED for the HD is somewhat disconcerting. Does anyone have a recommendation for a simple utility which shows drive activity (in the system tray)?

Thanks

I use one created by LoneWolf the site is suppose to be www.lonewolf.gr but the site is no longer up. Do a little search and im sure you can come up with it. Or if you want I can post up the file. I like it because you can customize the color of the "light" Also you can add a light for your readyboost if you care to know when its being used.

Tried it. Cute, but $20 license for one user is a little steep. Also, don't forget that, unlike the electrically-connected LED you see on other computers, this LED simulation is using RAM and CPU cycles.

you can customize the color of the lights in this one also for "active read", "active write" or "idle" colors and also monitor all of your physical drives and/or all of your logical (partitions) drives if you are running more than 1 OS, all of these lights will appear in your system tray or top left hand corner of your screen or both and you can turn toggle on/off which lights you wanna see, I only monitor my c drive with 1 light and the light just flickers blue/red/green accordingly

You can actually drag the little indicator from the upper left of the screen to anywhere you want it. (I prefer the lower right of the screen right above the tray). You can also hide the icon in the tray since it doesn't add much.

Incidentally it works even if you don't send the author $20. - although he does deserve it

Hah, I found the utility and shared it here and never even tried to drag it somewhere else, it DOES work, I moved it to the right side, but then moved it back to the left cause I have it on all my machines and I am kinda used to looking at the left side now..thanks for the info though.....
