Desk Drive

At a Glance
  • Generic Company Place Holder Desk Drive

Desk Drive keeps an icon in the system tray while it's running, and right-clicking the icon allows you to change settings such as whether it should start automatically with Windows (off by default) or create icons for newly connected network, fixed or RAM drives in addition to optical or removable drives.

The utility requires the Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0, and used about 20MB of memory on our test run. That memory usage is a little high for a small utility, but other than that Disk Drive is a nice free tool for those who frequently swap discs or USB drives.
