External Application ID Changing

Recommended Posts

I use the external application feature to send information from AIDA64 to Aquasuite. Not really sure if this is a bug but I'm finding the ID tags for sensors are randomly changing meaning that every week I have to go into Aquasuite and import the correct software sensors again.

One way to force this is to add an external hard drive. When connected the ID's change and when removed they change back to what they were. At first I assumed this was all that was happening but they are also changing randomly over time with no hardware change.

Is it at all possible to "lock" the tags (e.g. (data\sensor\aida64/thdd36_0)) in the external application settings or is this not possible due to how AIDA64 works? Its not impossible this is an issue with Aquasuite but I did not have the issue with HWiNFO before I switched to AIDA64. I only export HDD temps so this issue may be limited to HDD temps.

Thanks again,

Jim

Such anomaly could indeed happen when you connect/disconnect external drives on-the-fly.  It's not possible to lock the drives to a particular ID, but we can check what's happening with your drives in details, and possibly come up with a workaround.  Because external drives are supposed to be the last ones in the list of drives, and so the IDs for the internal drives shouldn't be affected by connecting/disconnecting external drives.  Maybe in your system the internal and external drive IDs are mixed together for some reason.

Please right-click on the bottom status bar of AIDA64 main window --> Disk Debug --> ATA Dump. Copy-paste the full results into this topic, or attach the results as a TXT file to your post. You may need to enable status bar in AIDA64 / main menu / View first.

Then right-click on the bottom status bar of AIDA64 main window --> Disk Debug --> SMART Dump. Copy-paste the full results into this topic, or attach the results as a TXT file to your post.

Finally, right-click on the bottom status bar of AIDA64 main window --> Disk Debug --> RAID Dump. Copy-paste the full results into this topic, or attach the results as a TXT file to your post.

Please repeat those dumps after disconnecting your external drive, so we can check how the list of drives and their IDs change.


Thanks,

Sorry for the late reply.. I have exported these now and will send them once it changes again so you have before and after. 

Just to clarify my "external" drives are connected via a sata hot swap bay so they appear to the system as internal drives. This explain why adding and removing them messes with the list. This is not really a problem though.

What seems to be the issue is that the drive numbers associated with a particular drive changes on reboot (not all reboots I don't think). So one drive was set to "data\sensor\aida64\thdd32_0" in aquasuite but after reboot it changed to "data\sensor\aida64\thdd24_0" and requires manually updating in aquasuite. 

If I look at my current log file it looks like this for the drives

As you can see the number range massively and some are missing etc.. Is there any way on the startup of aida64 the drives could be ordered corresponding to system drive number and then assigned a number? I don't really understand why numbers are missing (e.g. HDD12)

EDIT: No drives were added or removed at all from startup so that could not explain missing numbers

That indeed looks very weird.  We'll need to see the before & after dumps to find out more about the root cause of the issue.
