Drive Activity


Recommended Posts

For the Sensor Panel I see Drive Utilization, Used Space & Free Space. What I really need is Drive Activity; that is someway to show when a drive is actually being accessed.  I currently am using a utility called. "HddLed" which puts little drive icons on the screen but would like to see this done with AIDA64 Sensor Panel. The icons will blink in the color of my choice & at the selected duration of my choice when a drive is accessed.


I'm attaching a JPEG of the HddLed in action.

We've implemented disk activity measurement in the latest AIDA64 beta update available at:


Please note that the Performance tab of Windows Task Manager seems to measure the read and write speeds not in the classic MB/s or GB/s measurement units. It uses a divisor of 1000 instead of 1024, and that leads to displaying higher values than AIDA64. We stick to using the classic divisor and classic interpretation of MB/s and GB/s.

Also note that the current hardware monitor module of AIDA64 supports up to 10 disk drives when measuring disk activity. If you have more drives and would like us to expand the limit of 10 drives, let me know.
