MyPenDrive: Extended autorun functions for all USB drives
« on: April 23, 2007, 03:41:10 PM »
Here's a program that will run software and scripts from your USB drive and has other useful features as well. Also, see this article at ghacks.net to learn how to use MyPenDrive to run automatically run a backup when a USB drive is attached.

Quote
MyPendrive 2.0 has new, useful and extended features:
New! Start your portable apps at drive connection.
Create a list of portable apps you have in your drive and choose which one will be started at drive connection. You can choose to start automatically also MyPendriveUI and MyPendriveGadget (if installed).
New! Backup your folders at drive connection.
Make backups of personal folders, like MyDocuments, MyPictures, MyFavorites and so on; you can choose up to 3 other custom folders to backup. Backups can also be performed manually.
New! Custom context menus for your USB drive in MyComputer.
The list of your portable apps will always be accessible...

May be useful! I'm still considering whether there is any real point in the U3 smart drive stuff, and I'll make a topic on it soon.

Looks useful!  I recently lost my Sandisk U3 drive, and have decided to go back to the "normal" drives.  It seemed that releases of U3 software were few and far between.  It's a niche market, and I don't see that changing any time soon.

This looks really useful! Hooray!

I'm guessing it works on any kind of USB storage device, even if that USB is an external hard drive.

Interesting, but I'll stick with PStart.
