It is empty (no bars, just a hard disk icon) if the disk usage is very low or zero. Total data read and written in the current session and actual data transfer rates are displayed in the hint of the icons.If you want to disable this feature, please do the following:- right click on the tray icon and select "Configuration"- in the window, please select "Hard Disk Drives" page (it is the default)- uncheck "Display total disk usage on a single tray icon" option (last one)After pressing "OK", the icon will disappear.2.60b31/7/2008Added support for 3Ware ATA RAID controllers: displaying full hard disk information about all hard disks in the array(s). It is possible to modify acoustic configuration and test hard disks individually also. Tested with 3ware 8006-2LP PCI64 SATA1 RAID controller, 3ware 9550SX-4LP PCI-X SATA2 RAID controllerAdded support for SunPlusIT USB-bridge chipsAdded support for Initio USB-bridge chipsAdded support for Prolific USB-bridge chipsConfiguration -> Hard Disk Drives: Added option to display hard disk usage (activity) indicators on tray icons: these show the actual disk usage for read (upper light blue bar) and write (lower orange bar) operations. Total data read and written in the current session and actual data transfer rates are displayed in the hint of the icons.Note: the unregistered version can only display one combined icon for all disks (but not individual icons for each hard disks)Detection of power status of hard disks, keep sleeping disks in sleeping status (except when started). Displaying sleeping status on disk usage (activity) indicators (3rd icon on the above image, "zz" in a bubble).For example on the above picture: copying from disk #0 to disk #2 while disk #1 is in sleep mode. Disk usage (activity) of disk #0 is high (3 light blue "leds") but it still wait to disk #2 which is writing at full disk usage (4 orange "leds") so the bottleneck is disk #2. Usually all "leds" are visible under defragmentation.Added option to display only part of S.M.A.R.T. attribute raw data (High/Middle/Low word) on the attribute graph and in the attribute tables (only if decimal attribute values are selected)Improved detection and health display on older Maxtor hard disksMinor fixes (sound alert, tray icons, performance counters)PRO Version:Adding unicode processing method, correctly handling files with unicode characters in their nameAdded "Backup Control" page to configure backup operations and control synchronize options, specify filtersAdded one-way and two-way synchronization options for backup operationsAdded easy configuration of source and target folders (select folders quickly with checkboxes)Added option to Pause and Continue execution of archiving projects2.5020/5/2008improved compatibility with Vista and UAC: does not ask for privileges after installation and startupadded lowest hard disk health [XX %] to the subject of
