Thanks, I see and sorry for the troubles.
Generally, there should no problems with any version of Windows, including Windows 10 too of course.
However, in some rare situations yes, the task scheduler may not work as should: may not create the required entries and/or may not start the software as should. To be honest, personally I have no idea why and what can cause this (especially on a new system) as I could never reproduce it on any systems.
But the problem with task scheduler is real, there are lots of results if you search for "repair windows scheduler" "fix windows scheduler" and so (independently from Hard Disk Sentinel or other software).
Generally, on normal situations, you should see this:
and if scroll right, this:
which confirms not only that the task created to start Hard Disk Sentinel automatically when the user (user E in this example) logs in, and also confirms that the task is currently running.How to fix Hard Disk Sentinel startup problem, how to manually create an entry to start it automatically with Windows:
Please disable the Configuration -> Preferences -> Load with Windows option, to prevent Hard Disk Sentinel from communicating with the task scheduler at all.
Open Windows Scheduler
Click on the Create Task
. In this window, please specify a task name (for example HDS) and optionally you can enter a description.
Make sure to enable "Run with highest privileges" option on the bottom.
Select the Triggers tab and click "New..." on the botton. There it is possible to select when Hard Disk Sentinel should start. Select Begin: At log on and specific user. The current user name should be offered, so no change required, click OK.
Select the Actions tab and click on the Browse. Select the folder where Hard Disk Sentinel installed ( C:\Program Files (x86)\Hard Disk Sentinel by default ) and HDSentinel.exe from it.
Then the newly created task should be displayed in the Task Scheduler.
and if you restart the system, Hard Disk Sentinel should start automatically when you log in with this user.
Sorry for the troubles. Yes, not easy - and this is exactly why Hard Disk Sentinel does it automatically.
