problem with screenshot captor automatic mode
« on: April 29, 2017, 12:18:47 PM »
If you set screenshot captor in automatic mode and let it run for a long period of time (I have it set to do a full screen capture every 20 seconds for 9,000 captures -- roughly 50 hours), it will eventually hang with a red icon in the tray.  I have to kill it and restart it.  The hang happens at different times, usually after running for 20 to 30 hours, or like around 4000-5000 captures.  I have plenty of disk space to store the captures, so that's not the problem.

I'll have a look -- sounds like it might be a little tricky to pin down the problem due to how long it will take to reproduce.
Hopefully Automatic Screenshotter will solve your problems and be even better.

It might happen more quickly if you capture more often.   Seemed to last longer when I changed from 15 seconds to 20 seconds. 

Also I am running on Windows 10... Not sure if that makes a difference.
