Hi Max,

there is a forum especially for ADM: https://forum.acronis.com/forums/other-home-home-office-products-discus…

Maybe the program want to show up on a second, not connected anymore, screen. I have this issue with some other programs.

You can try to re-install the application also.

Note: ADM is not supported to run in Windows 8+, see here for complete list: https://kb.acronis.com/content/9699

I don't think Acronis is supporting Drive monitor anymore.  This is one of the rare times I would specificially recommend a different product since there has been no product improviement or development for Windows 8.0 or newer. 

I might suggest you check out the free version of Hard Desk Sentinel as a possible alternative. I liked it so much I purchased the Pro Version, but I suspect the  free one is sufficient for most people.

Yes, I have also invested in the Pro version of Hard Desk Sentinel - picked up some dying disks (mostly ancient ones), so it was well worth the price.

You also can go for a open source version like smartmontools (https://sourceforge.net/projects/smartmontools/). There is ongoing development and also supports NVMe drives.
