Handy if you use usb or cd-dvd drives a lot 5 stars by Harlan Nov 27, 2011 (Read all my 69 reviews)
At first glance this seems like a small convenience, but if you frequently plug in and remove USB drives as I do, this easy access via a desktop icon is addictive. It is also handy when using a multicard reader with memory cards from cameras, cell phones, and media players. I have installed it on both machines I use. The current version includes a third-party add-on, which earns a few cents for the developer. I usually decline, but I like this enough to accept it, if only for a few days. show Review details
Functions well: usb and optical disc drives 5 stars by DataRat Apr 27, 2010 (Read all my 15 reviews)
On my 64-bit Win Vista machine with 4-gigs of RAM, Desk Drive has been 100% in my experience ! Neither slows my system, or has ~ever~ crashed. show Review details
PC got too sluggish 2 stars by GinnaBL Jan 11, 2009 (Read all my 5 reviews)
This is a program I looked forward to using, but sadly, it was just too 'heavy' on my R31 ThinkPad, XP Pro, Pent3, SP2, .NET 2.0. Pc got too sluggish and each time I tried to use the Tray icon's Menu, the Program crashed! I'm thinking of downloading v1.7 but I noticed its KBs are even larger :( O Well.. there must be another drive detector out there just waiting for me to give it a happy home :) show Review details
