Publisher's Description

Desk Drive solves a really annoying problem. You pop a USB thumb drive or DVD into your computer and then you have to open Window's Explorer and find the mapped drive or folder. Desk Drive adds a desktop icon pointing to the drive automatically. Remove the media and the shortcut goes away. Brilliantly simple and effective. Desk Drive sits quietly in the system tray. Configuration (image at right) is just a click away and allows you to specify which types of media to monitor. So simple, it just works. Download it today.

This is a handy little piece of software that has made my computing more efficient, it makes me wish such an option was available inbuilt into windows to have such a feature but I am so glad someone came up with it.

It worked well on my Windows Vista x86 (will try in win7 x86 in the not too distant future).

The "Show positional effect" feature is simply a circular red ring that appears for a few seconds each time a new device is added, its simply eye candy and can be switched off, I found it to be more suitable off but others may disagree therefore its great to have an option.

If you are constantly mounting drives, playing audio cds, using flash devices this application is for you especially if you have disabled Autoplay.

Seems like it should be a simple utility that just, uh... WORKS. Yet after installing and running it, all it does is freeze up on me. Great stuff.

And what does "Show positional effect" mean? Very intuitive. I guess I might be able to figure it out if it worked in the first place.

I was going to be charitable and give it a 3, but since it's totally unusable, I can't see giving it anything other than a 1.

Might want to recheck that RAM usage figure.
