AndreasV: The label I refer to is the 'red one'.

BTW, when I use 256x256 png file (e.g. Jairo Titanium Drive', the label and the percentage bar just show at upper left (as it is mapped to 128x128 pixel only (I believe), is there any way to stretch it to the whole png image size no matter what is the pixel? (just wondering)...

VenomTC (1): It are the iCal graphics. I am porting them to this Calendar Docklet, but it's a lot of work (cut/copy/paste, cut/copy/paste, etc...)

VenomTC (2): Yes I have an e-mail and a MSN

http://home.hccnet.nl/averhoev.2/hdmonitor.dll you can set a custom label, still working on that colour mask (I need an updated gdi+ SDK, but can't find it anywhere on the net/ms-site ( )
Font size can be done in the hdmonitor.ini

Cartier: Which label do you mean? The white one in the screenshot or the the Red C in the screenshot?

On colour mask: Excellent suggestion, I will look if I can implement it

AndreasV, I just try with the new version of the DLL and it works! Thanks. BTW, is it possible to modify the label which is different from the drive (or the path) you specify? e.g. c:\mybackup is not enough to show up (just c:\myb... show up). also is it possible to specify font size as well?

Also I wonder is it nice if the icon colour will change (with a colour mask for instance) so that you may aware the free disk space is not enough (configurable theshold)? the bar is quite small actually when it keep as normal icon size until you zoom into it...

Anyway, just suggestion for newer version. I know it may be difficult to implement. Appreicate your works!!!

Cool feature, I didn't know it. Does the "Use path" option work for you that's in the new DLL?
Comment #31 Monday, October 13, 2003 3:39 PM
AndreasV, regarding "disk partition that is mount to a folder". Starting from Windows 2000 and newer OS, the partition is no longer limited only with a drive letter (i.e. A-Z), you can assign a folder to map to that particular partition. For example I create a 4GB partition and map it to c:\mybackup folder, orginially the 4GB partition will show as drive D previously, but now I can treat it as common folder (c:\mybackup\ in this case) and just copy my backup files to that folder without concern it will use up my original drive C. Hope you understand what I mean, or I need to capture some screenshot?

Grab the new DLL here:

All requested options are added, again, if you like it, send me a postcard
Comment #33 Monday, October 13, 2003 2:26 PM
Deluxe4ever: great, I think everyone should set there own colors/fontsizes/placements for those graphs, so that's why I added this option. Not a bad choice I guess

fix for previous post: what's should be watch (he, they sound almost the same )
Comment #34 Monday, October 13, 2003 2:05 PM
perfect in white and a little bit bigger and upper. Thanks AndreasV
Comment #35 Monday, October 13, 2003 1:41 PM
VenomTC (1): sure, will add it straight away, what's this place for an update notice

VenomTC (2): It's someone who meant a lot to me...

xenogearz: isn't it nice? You install a docklet and suddenly your free diskspace is multiplied by 1024

Oops, made a stupid typo in the code :stupidme:

use this settings in the hdmonitor.ini
