Mouser's Zone / issue with automatic screenshotter
« on: May 08, 2017, 09:54 AM »
I found another issue with automatic screenshotter.  It seems that there is something wrong with the cleanup/delete of old screenshots.  I had it set to "0" for number of screenshots to keep, 500mb for disk space, and 500 for days to keep.  It was automatically deleting screenshots that were about 17 hours old... there were about 1000 screenshots in that time.  I don't remember if 1000 was the original default for number of screenshots to keep before I set it to 0, but it might have been.

I have now changed the configuration to "0" for all three settings, and I restarted.  Will post back here if the behavior changes at all.

Mouser's Zone / Bug report: automatic screenshotter stops
« on: May 01, 2017, 09:09 AM »
Similar to what I reported for the automatic mode in screenshot captor (, I see the same behavior with automatic screenshotter.  After running for some period of time (for me it was about 30 hours, capturing every 20 seconds), the application will lock up and stop capturing.  I have to kill it and restart it.  It would not respond to right click menu from the system tray.

Let me know if there are any logs or other troubleshooting I could do to help pinpoint the problem.

Screenshot Captor / problem with screenshot captor automatic mode

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.

Screenshot Captor / feature requests for automatic capture mode

First, thanks for the hard work on this program.  Very well done.

I'm using it to capture periodic screenshots in automatic mode.  I think a couple new features would make this even better than it already is:
1) allow "repeat until stopped", rather than limited to a set number of captures.  would like it to just keep running without ever stopping unless I manually stop it.
2) add an optional feature to delete intermediate captures that are identical to current capture.  that is, once a capture is made, it could compare it to the previous capture file, and if the files are the same (or even could have a tolerance where they are the same within some % deviation), it automatically deletes the previous file.
