When you connect a new USB drive or insert a DVD or CD, the handy
Desk Drive utility automatically creates a shortcut on your desktop
to access the drive or disc. Remove the device or disc, and the
icon likewise disappears.
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.
