The problem with having so many removable devices – back-up drives, USB sticks, CD disks, DVD disks and so on is that when you put them into your computer, you then have to go searching in Windows Explorer to see where what drive it is running on so you start it and access it. Lots of clicking around which is not very productive.
Desk Drive is a lightweight Windows application that sits in your system tray and monitors your computer activity. As soon as you plug in a removable device such as a USB stick or a disk, Desk Drive knows (because you set it up in the configuration) and it immediately puts a shortcut to the device on your PC desktop for you to click on.
Then when you have finished using your device, just unplug it and the shortcut immediately disappears from your desktop!
Very nice! That one is going in my “keeper” folder!
