DiskLED is Now Open Source

DiskLED is a tool I wrote a while ago that displays performance counter data using an animated system tray icon. It comes with a graphical configuration dialog that lets you choose from all performance counters available on the local system – you can monitor network throughput just as easily as hard disk activity or memory usage.

There still seems to be a decent userbase – after all, DiskLED works on Windows 10 just as well as it did on XP. I sometimes get requests for new features or modifications. Unfortunately, I do not have the time for that. But I am more than happy to comply with Brian H’s request to make DiskLED open source.

You can find DiskLED’s source code on GitHub. Have fun!

    This is easily one of the most useful utilities ever created for Windows users. It is a must-have that I install on every Windows PC or Notebook I own. I am continually flabbergasted and annoyed that most every manufacturer has removed what is arguably the single most useful LED on the hardware. It boggles my mind why they have done this. It’s even more useful than the power LED — I *know* the PC is on when the display lights up! Anyways, thank you for writing this, and it’s a true testament to it’s usefulness (and well written-ness) that it continues to work from XP through Win10…

    Can’t get it to work after latest Win10 update – October 2018. Works initially in Win7 compatibility mode, but doesn’t hold the compatibility changes.
