Essential for me. I use an Addonics Port Multiplier and always had problems, probably related to disks going into standby mode.

This is a very well coded app, really enjoy using it everyday, best of all it seems to be updated regularly, keep up the good work.

Excellent little app that has saved me from returning my WD Elements 4TB external drive. As this drive internally is a WD40EZRX (Green) drive with its dreadful 8 second 'intelli' park feature, I was racking up up to 50 head parks per hour when I first got it! Setting this to write every 4 seconds works beautifully to basically override the 8 second parking behaviour (I found that 6 seconds just isn't enough on my system). Disable writing is a great feature that basically allows the drive to actually park itself if there is no computer activity for x minutes (not the drive, but the system, which is more useful IMO) In use, it doesn't seem to significantly increase operating temperatures. In other words, it works great :-)

Good, but it should have a notification if writing fails. Found out the hard way that KeepAliveHD wasn't writing to the drive for over a month on Windows 8.1, was a permissions issue but it had been working previously, not sure if a Windows Update messed with permissions. I now have to run as administrator, AND to get it to start with windows had to set it to run on login with the task scheduler with highest priority.
