USB Drive Ejector Software

I reported a while back on a product called Unlocker if you are having problems unlocking your USB drive from a Windows operating system. Today I bring you another package which does the same function; however, is easier to use. USB Drive Ejector is a simple utility which lists all USB devices on your buss and with a double click – you can unlock and eject the device.

This is a great tool to have in case you’ve ran into:
  1. Cannot delete file, access denied
  2. Sharing violation
  3. Source destination file in use
  4. File is in use by another program, etc.
However, you should always proceed with caution when a stubborn drive wont eject. Sometimes…and I mean sometimes…there are reasons. Such as virus software scanning the memory device or Windows writing to the device in cache memory. These examples are far and few between so a couple of common sense activities might be in order, such as Continue Reading

U3 Software: NT File Recovery

ntfs file recovery softwareThere have been plenty of moments in my computer life I’d like to turn back time. Especially those Vista Upgrades or even the minor events like accidentally deleting files. For the last [mentioned] brain fart, there is some U3 Software which can help; NT File Recovery. The file recovery software is designed to recover any deleted file from a NTFS system. Many USB file recovery software packages only support files and folders, but this package includes support for getting back applications and media files such as wmv and mpeg files. Another point worth consideration, is the convenience of running the software from your U3 drive as to eliminate the risk of overwriting your data from the PC you’re try to salvage data from. This U3 application is absolutely free, and ready for the taking. U3 Software NT File Recover download page. Continue Reading

Hide Your Flash

Have you ever wanted to hide files on your computer or flash drive? I could think of several “categories” of data in which I’d like to hide from people around me. Of course I’m talking about valuable data such as passwords, financial records and the priceless contact list for GetUSB.info network of publishers. Today I found a small utility called HideFlash 1.0 which does just what the name says. Hides your data on a UFD. The USB security software protects files and folders from others who are trying to view them without permission. What works for me with this package is not only do you have the 128bit encryption working for you, but the Hide Flash software also hides the files and folders it’s protecting. This means when a USB drive is plugged into any computer, the user wouldn’t even know there’s extra data.

Registry Analyzer for U3 Flash Drives

Albeit U3 claims no trace of U3 software remains on the host PC it doesn’t hurt to run a registry analyzer package just to make sure. While in the midst of doing this USB gadget research, I found the following free utility. Ntechnologies has a U3 specific reg analyzer to aid in the registry clean-up process.

Whenever hardware or software is added to a PC there are registry changes. The registry also provides a window into the operation of the OS kernel, exposing runtime information such as performance counters, currently active hardware, software and utilities. Even using the U3 uninstall software might not leave your PC 100% clean. You can download the Registry Analyzer for U3 here. Continue Reading

Webster’s New World College Dictionary on USB

If I’m sending my kids off to college and they don’t know how to use the internet for spelling…well that’s money poorly spent. On the other-hand, it’s always nice to load up a flash drive with 140MBs of data so you can spell check on the fly. Wait…doesn’t every program, including Photoshop, include spell check these days? Ya I thought so. I’ve never understood the USB dictionary.

Centon has the 4GB for $65 and 2GB for $43.  BUT I just found a similar USB Dictionary off Amazon for $36. Continue Reading
