How to Disable Drive Scan without opening the HWinfo?
#1
Hello there. I have installed HWinfo v6.02 and the software makes my system crash at the startup when its detecting everything at "S.M.A.R.T. #0" where it freezes and then causes my system to crash. It started happening ever since I installed AMD StoreMi so I guess that's the culprit, given how it crashes at "S.M.A.R.T. #0". Anyway, I heard that disabling Drive Scan will fix this issue but the problem is I can't open the HWinfo app in the first place to disable drive scan. 

Is there any way to disable Drive Scan without opening the HWinfo App? So far I've tried modifying the "HWiNFO64.INI" file found in C:\Program Files\HWiNFO64 and change all the values from "1" to "0" that mentioned "Drive" in their name but it still crashes on "S.M.A.R.T. #0" on startup. How do I disable Drive Scan without opening up the App?

By default HWiNFO should be showing the welcome dialog, where you can click Settings, but I suppose you disabled this prompt.
Manually you can disable Drive Scan by editing the HWiNFO64.INI file and change the HighestIdeAddress entry to:
HighestIdeAddress=-1

Thank you for the help. I changed HighestIdeAddress to -1 and now it works like a charm! Thanks a lot!

You're welcome.
Nevertheless, I'd interested in the HWiNFO Debug File of the crash on your system to analyze how can I fix this.

I enabled the Safe Mode and then checked Debug Mode from Settings and ran the App. This time it didn't crash. It just took a very long time to load up. I have attached the debug file. 

P.S - If it helps - As I've said that this problem started occurring ever since I installed StoreMi. It's using a 120GB SSD to accelerate 1TB HDD along with using 2GB of my System Memory acting as Cache.

Thanks. Yeah, I've seen a few issues with StoreMI and resolved some of them..
If you're able to reproduce the crash again, it would be great to capture that in DBG.
