Updates / Upgrades

PA Storage Monitor can be upgraded by simply installing the latest version on top of your existing installation. Your settings and databases will be upgraded as needed.

You might need to reset the PA Storage Monitor service's Run As account (from Settings or the Windows Services applet), but other than that no further configuration changes will be needed.

I have been a server admin for the previous 15 years and [PA Server Monitor] really seems to hit the mark for functionality, price, performance, ease of setup/use. Great job!
