I just use Windows XP and was wondering if there is a way to get HFS to automatically start after rebooting a computer?

I realize I can do this by setting up HFS as a service but that seems very troublesome to do. Regular programs often just have an checkbox option to automatically start on reboot. Is there a reason HFS can't do this or am I just missing something here?

Otherwise great program. Thanks!

Well, if you don't want to set it up as a service, you can include it in your  Windows startup.  Very easy to do.  Just drag and drop or copy and paste hfs.exe shortcut into windows startup folder.  (Start > Programs > Startup).  Done.

i didn't put the feature because you can just drag&drop hfs in programs -> startup

Yes there is a way!

just make a shortcut to the exe file,

press start -> All prgrams- > dubble tap the startup folder,

now place the shortcut of the HFS.exe file here

OR:

if in classical taskbar mod, Start -> Programs -> dubbletap startup folder,

and put the shortcut of the HFS.exe file there

Wow is it that easy? I was looking at that and couldn't figure out if the "startup" folder was just a link folder of if it did something.

If its that easy, having a feature in HFS or not doesn't make a big difference then. But one of those little things that should help make HFS an even more user friendly and awesome software.

Thanks again rejetto!
