Let me know what you think on the local USB drive thing (needed or ignorable).
It would be useful if all of these items could be gathered in one application. Nothing should impede overall progress, though. Why not set it aside for later?
It's a thought, but I'm sort of in-the-thick-of-it now. So it's probably best to push on through as it's not going to get any clearer if I wait.
Last night I got the SUBSTitute drive creation function working. So now there is an option to create SUBST drives with a built in GUI. The delete SUBST drive context menu option will be next, but that'll have to wait for a bit as I'm working on the humane society's web site today.
W7 gives some very quirky-seeming (to me) connections when it shows 'safely remove'. I'm left wondering, almost, if I'm about to eject my boot drive
Yes that would be the part I was worried about. While I know that the boot drive cannot actually be ejected ... I'm just not 100% warm-&-Fuzzy about the other drives that appear that way.
Then there are the WD SCSI drives that are actually SATA (speaking of which, when searching for something else yesterday, I pulled out a bunch of old SCSI drives, including a Plextor CD drive.
Any device specific behavioral quirks you can let me know about are greatly appreciated.
I had actually been toying with adding a hotkey option (something like Shift + Right Click) that would add all drive/device options to the context menu at once to allow coverage for those pesky chimera drives.
