PolarDisk by killall-q PolarDisk by killall-q
Companion disk activity meter to PolarPrecise and PolarCPU.

• Simple interface for changing disk and colors.
• Well-optimized for animating at 20 frames per second.
• Included font is Sinner by Helge Barske; it will not be installed to the system.
• Requires Rainmeter 2.4 or above.

Left-click to open disk.
Middle-click to toggle color / alternate color.
Access settings from right-click menu - mouse away to hide.


- Removed right-click functionality to enable right-click menu.
- Added context menu to access settings.
- Fixed interface to change drive letter.

- Workaround for freezes in Rainmeter 3.0+. Interface to change drive letter is currently more finicky than it should be.

What is Rainmeter?

Click Start, type cmd right click cmd.exe, and select Run as administrator.
At the prompt, type lodctr /r and press ENTER. This will repair the pointers (those are stored in the registry).

C:\Windows\system32>lodctr /r

Info: Successfully rebuilt performance counter setting from system backup store

After this action it is possible that some providers are disabled. You can check the status with lodctr /q.

C:\Windows\system32>lodctr /q

If it says (Disabled) next to a provider, you can enable it with lodctr /e:<provider name>. Use for <provider name> the string between the [ ] at the beginning  of the entry.

Rainmeter does not have any dependencies on .Net. There were changes to the InputText plugin in Rainmeter 3.0 that caused this skin to freeze Rainmeter upon trying to change the drive letter. I've bypassed this with FocusDismiss=0, but it makes the interface touchy.

How do I have multiple of these on the desktop so that I can have one for separate drives?
killall-q Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2012  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Just duplicate the skin's folder in Documents\Rainmeter\Skins, refresh Rainmeter, and look in the right click menu.
closedeyesABond Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
Yup, that is exactly what I did. Thanks for the reply.

let me sleep on it, will get back (hopefully)
Qwaftzefoni74 Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2012
I can not get enough of this work, love it! Please consider consolidating all skins into one folder
killall-q Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2012  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Well, that's all I can think of for this theme, hardly enough for a suite. Do you have any ideas?
Qwaftzefoni74 Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2012
nope, and I sure took my time
