June 15th, 2014 No comments

A major update of Disk Activity Indicator to version 1.3 is out. It brings some new features as monitoring USB devices, indicator transitions, persistent disabled disks, and others, but also has lots of fixes and improvements. Feel free to upgrade via the built-in Web Update feature, available on application Start-up or on the About dialog, where start-up check could be turned off.

This is a highly recommended update as some issues with the performance counters` calculation formulas have been addressed. Enjoy the new release! A sneak-peak is following.

The Tray area icon (flickering mode) and the Popup notification dialog:

…the main application dialog for drives selection and history diagram:

Disk Activity Indicator 1.2.1

June 10th, 2014 No comments

It seams this week is the update week of the month. Just a day after the update from version 1.1 to 1.2 and we have a new release 1.2.1 in the wild, although a minor one. It could be a “minor”, but it brings important new features, as this refreshed options dialog:

It also brings the new Indicator type which is based on disk load. Creative ones could set up new Themes with progress bar icons (#8 to 12) in a minute. Please note that loading a previous version theme will disable this indicator mode, so you have to update your themes accordingly – take a look at the README file for details.

The pearl in the treasure, however, is the brand new Notification window accessible through tray icon`s one-click event. It will auto-hide when you move to another application. Check it out in the screenshot below. Of course you can grab the new update from the link at the end of the post. Or, just use the built-in Web Update feature from the About dialog.

The recently announced Disk Activity (aka DI) application has been updated bringing two new key features:

Disk Activity Indicator 1.0

May 25th, 2014 No comments

Another project; another tool released for free. I suppose some of you have got one of those small and lightweight laptops, or netbook, which… surprise – doesn’t have a LED indicator for HDD / SSD activity. Well, please enjoy the new tool which can place a nice small activity indicator next to your system clock and the other system icons as Battery, Wi-Fi and Volume.

The application provides useful statistics about your disk drives activities and a history diagram in a well-suited GUI a-la Windows 8 style. Plus, some options are available for your convenience. The application tray icon – representing the disk activity status – could be fully customized. Sample themes provided for Windows 8, 7 and XP.
