    Hard Drive Health & SMART Monitoring Utility

    I've used HDDGuardian for years on Windows 7 with no problems. Since upgrading to Windows 10, I've noticed that the process exits itself after a certain period of time (when the screen saver comes on, or when the computer goes to sleep). In typical fashion (not exclusive to this software), the tray icon remains there but disappears as soon as you mouse over it (because the process has ended).

    I reinstalled HDDGuardian (was running 0.62, the current version already), since Win10 was an upgrade, not a fresh install. The problem did not go away.

    So I decided to switch to DiskCheckup, but the problem persists - the process exists after a certain period of time.

    No other resident software (tray icon or not) has this issue.

    Is there something about windows 10 that HD monitoring software makers haven't updated to enable compatibility/proper functioning?

    Anyone here using one of the two pieces of SW above, or any other disk monitoring software, successfully?
