USB Safely Remove, 50% discount on January 17th
« on: January 16, 2009, 05:15:02 PM »
USB Safely Remove is a USB device manager. It saves time and extends user abilities on active work with flash drives, portable drives, card readers and other gadgets.

The program gives a handy safe removal devoid of annoyances of the native Windows tool, displays what programs prevent stopping a device, hides drives of empty card reader slots, allows to return a stopped devices back and has many features for comfortable work with hot-plug devices (USB, SATA, Firewire).

Also the program was included into "TOP 100 Best products of 2008 year" by PCWorld magazine.

Read more about the program here: http://safelyremove.com/

Only for 16th and 17th January we offer the program with 50% discount, for only $10.

Discount coupon: JA17PROMO

Before you buy this program please realize that not only does it not work with Windows 7, but some (most?) of the program's functionality is in Windows 7 out of the box.

I've downloaded the trial version (no probs on Win 7 so far), should last me until the discount. Even if not it has become a must have over the course of just 36 hours.  ;)

USB Disk Ejector works fine too and is freeware.  Have been using it on my XP and Vista boxes without a hitch.

USB Safely Remove does more than just eject.  Samples:

  • Display surprise removal USB devices
  • On attempt to stop a whole card reader:
    • Ask a question
    • Always disconnect
    • Never disconnect (only allow ejection of memory cards)
  • Drive letter management —
    • Hide drive letters when there are no media inserted (System setting)
      This option is very useful when you have a card reader. Usually card readers
      create several extra empty drives in the system. After this option is enabled you
      will only see drives of those slots where memory cards are inserted into.
    • Prohibit assigning the following drive letters to hot-plug devices
    It will prevent Windows from assigning the specified drive letters to hot-plug
    devices (flash drives, USB drives). It is useful if you have nelwork drives
  • Global Autorun
    Here you can assign programs to launch on connection or disconnection of all devices visible by the program
 

The feature I like most is the ability to permanently assign a drive letter to a USB device.  E.g., one USB stick always appears as F:, another as G:, the card reader is always H:, and my WD Passport external HD is always I:, whether or not they are present at boot time and in whatever order they are added.  

If you want even more features, the same firm make Zentimo.  Key features:

Quote
  • Drive Letter Management
    The program can hide drive letters of unused card reader slots, tie a drive letter to a specific device and many more...
  • Portable App Quick Launcher
    Lets you launch any application located on your external drive with a click
  • Powerful Autorun
    Can automatically mount\dismount your TrueCrypt drive, a file manager, check flash for viruses or anything else on device connection\disconnection
  • Real Safe Device Removal
    Lets you stop your device, displays locking processes or even activate a stopped device back.
  • Honest Drive Speed Test
    You can see your drive actual read\write speed

Yes!  Me too!  I love that feature more so than anything else.  The software is worth the money just for that alone, even if it didn't do any of the start/stop stuff.  It's a well made program, it really is.  It does what it says and is supposed to do, it does it really well, the design is simple yet elegant, the user experience is great.  I love stuff like that.

USBDLM V4.5.2 is another freeware alternative for drive letter assignment that's solved my XP machine's issue.  Runs as a service at start up.  Appears to be not compatible with Vista or Win7 but those OS's are supposed to not be afflicted anyway.

Seems like there's always a decent freeware alternative for non-crucial system issues.  For those more important - like backup and imaging, no shortcuts.

I'm using UWBDLM under Win 7 64-bit (and before that Vista 64-bit and before that Vista 32-bit) with no problems whatsoever.

It's also a command line tool.  I have no problem with it, but I'd much prefer a nice interface with buttons and stuff.  I think I came across USBDLM a while back and it worked as advertised.  I didn't have any problems with it (XP system).

I got USB Safely Remove during the free giveaway in August. The version offered, 4.7, is frozen, meaning I cannot get any updates without upgrading. That's OK - perfectly acceptable since the giveaway was surely meant to attract interested people who would hopefully become permanent customers. However after downloading and installing the giveaway version I received a flurry of emails trying to get me to upgrade immediately. When I say "flurry" it was more like a blizzard! Maybe a dozen emails in the first three days. It died down quite a bit after that to a more acceptable level of maybe three a week, then the emails stopped altogether.

I do understand that they gave away the program in order to draw paying customers but I would think that people need a little time to decide whether or not they really like the software before barraging them with solicitations. IDK, maybe I have it all wrong and the first few days are critical from a marketing standpoint. It just seemed like overkill too soon to me.

As it stands I no longer have this program start with Windows. I was running it on Windows 7 and it went a little bonkers on me a few times. Anytime I clicked on the little "Up" arrow that opens the system tray's hidden icons I would get one or more USB Safely Remove windows open telling me it was safe to remove, well, just about every USB device I had connected! I admit I didn't take the time to troubleshoot it because I don’t connect and disconnect devices to my PC that often so it was easier to just disable the auto-start and use the old-fashioned Windows utility for safely removing USB devices.

I'm surprised because so many DC members praised this program. Has anyone else seen similar issues with USB Safely Remove? Any thoughts on what kind of conflict could be behind the weird behavior I saw?

Thanks!

Jim

I'm one of them, I'm very pleased with how easy it integrates with Windows 7 (x64) and how painless it makes the mounting and dismounting of USB aparatus that need to be dismounted.
You must have something hosed on your system, either a weird (unsupported doesn't seem appropriate) or defective USB controller or some drivers acting up in your Windows install.

Btw, I got that same 4.7 from the august giveaway, but only received like 2 or 3 offers to "Upgrade Now" (per account that I got it for :)) with the above post being the last one.

Anytime I clicked on the little "Up" arrow that opens the system tray's hidden icons I would get one or more USB Safely Remove windows open telling me it was safe to remove, well, just about every USB device I had connected!

Hi, Jim.  I had a slightly different but possibly related experience with USB Safely Remove (version 4.7.1.1153).  Several times, when I was clicking on a different program in my system tray, USB Safely Remove would pop up to tell me that there were "no visible connected devices."  I thought that was strange, since I hadn't clicked on the USBSR icon.  I finally realized that each time, I had been clicking on the icon right next to USBSR, and instead of hitting the icon directly, I missed and was actually clicking on the space between the other program and USBSR.  That was enough to trigger the popup.  If you've got the USBSR icon sitting right next to the little "up" arrows leading to the hidden icons, it may be that you didn't hit the arrows directly but clicked slightly to the right, and that would be enough to trigger the USBSR popup.

I think I've even seen this happen when I've intended to click on the ClipMate icon, which isn't all that near USBSR.  Occasionally, if I don't hit the ClipMate icon cleanly, USBSR has popped up.  I really don't understand that, since the icons are not next to each other.  It's also the case that this behavior with ClipMate and USBSR is not consistent or even frequent, but it has happened several times.
