Have you tried removing and reinstalling it?

The most common problem with file activity not starting is not enough inotify watches.  Look in your log and see if there is a log about not having enough.

 

Several suggestions:

  • Cut down on what you are monitoring.  Don't include Unassigned Devices or Cache and Pool devices.
  • Install the Tips and Tweaks plugin and increase the 'Max Watches'.
