License dropped out? No warning/notice. Hasn't scanned for months...



So I don't do any sort of manual checking in on Scanner as I have email notifications setup.  But apparently my license "dropped out" and Scanner hasn't done anything for months.  I went it this evening to determine what my 2 oldest drives were as I plan to upgrade/increase my pool storage. I was surprised to see the screen say I needed to purchase/enter my License. So I pulled that up, pasted it in and it's Activated again...but Scanner hasn't been doing anything all this time - but no notifications ever popped up on my server desktop and no emails were sent.  

So what caused my license # to "drop out"?   And is there a way to setup notifications so if this happens again, I will know?  Now I'm waiting on Scanner to scan 64TB of drives...


Much thanks

In general, this shouldn't happen, but certain scenarios seem to trigger this more.  Namely the large semi-annual updates for Windows 10/11.  

But if you do seee this happening, open a ticket, and then run the StableBit Troubleshooter, and let us know when it's complete.

Thanks, fortunately no issues once all drive scans completed...but it took a while.  

Potential related question - and I can post a new ticket if you prefer:  If I upgrade my server to W11 from W10 - anything I need to be concerned about re: Drivepool/Scanner?  I'm assuming all should migrate over w/o any other work required?  I also just noticed there are new versions for both (see screenshot). Haven't updated in ages, but looks like I can just follow the "click here" prompts to update?  Should I shut down the software first?
