That's the time the report was created... i.e. current time. It's not the time the readings were taken... unless I'm incorrect.hdsentinel wrote:> BTW one thing that is missing from the web report is the time the readings were taken.
The report contains the report creation date/time, listed on the top.

I set the hard drive spin down time in Windows to 5 minutes.
I listened as a few minutes later the external drive spun down.
I removed the external drive from the HDS main window. The hope here was that for drives HDS did not work well with I could tell it to COMPLETELY ignore them.
But, precisely at the 30 minute interval I had defined, the external drive spun back up. Checking the graph confirmed that HDS caused this.
