May we have an option to have Dxtory startup when Windows does?

As a workaround, use the task scheduler.

I hadn't thought of that. The usual startup folders and such weren't working.

Pro tip about using the task scheduler, export the task, edit the xml file with <Priority>4</Priority>, save it and import it back into the task scheduler.
This changes the programs Disk IO Priority and if not changed will lead to Dxtory having "low" Disk IO priority causing stutters etc. if the disk is used by anything else.

I recommend the value of 4 but if you want you can lookup the other values here:

Mmmm task scheduler isn't working for me :( Oh well, I can live with manually doing it.
