USB Drive Letter Manager beta

Posted on Sunday, Dec 28 2008 @ 18:18 CET by

USBDLM is a Windows service that gives control over Window's drive letter assignment for USB drives. Running as service makes it independent of the logged on user's privileges, so there is no need to give the users the privilege to change drive letters. It automatically solves conflicts between USB drives and network or subst drives of the currently logged on user Furthermore you can define new default letters for USB drives and much more.

  • ListUsbDrives shows the sections from the USBDLM.INI which are used for a drive
  • Multiple NTFS folders can be assigned as mount points, also in addition to a drive letter
  • In sections [OnArrival], OnRemoval etc up to 10 commands can be executed (open1 to open9 and the known open)
  • [OnArrival] and AutoRun.inf for TrueCrypt volumes
  • When a DeviceID is configured then the BusType for non USB drives can be omitted, same for the DriveType e.g. for CDROM drives
  • [OnArrival] can start a program under Vista with full rights ("elevated")
  • Criteria UserIsAdmin is under Vista related to the "elevated" user, so it is 1 for an Admin under UAC
  • Criteria for absence of a file (FileNotExists)
  • [OnRemovalFailed] is executed asynchronously to avoid event ping pong when using RemoveDrive
  • AutoRun on System Events
  • First time arrivals under Windows 2000 optimized
  • Using [OnArrival], OnRemoval etc there is the new default criterion MinVolumeSize=1, so a media must be present
  • Drive letters can be checked [on resume] from standby and hibernation mode
  • Drive letters by Volume Serial Number
  • Drive description for USB drives in the menu of "Safely Remove Hardware"
