Software Update: USB Drive Letter Manager 4.8.0.0

A new version of USB Drive Letter Manager has been released. This versatile program allows you to manage USB devices. For example, drive letters can only be assigned when a medium is inserted into the drive, which is useful for multi-card readers. You can also specify which drive letters may or may not be assigned, depending on the type of USB device, the size of the drive, the USB port used, and the name of the volume. In addition, the application indicates by means of a speech bubble in the system tray which device or volume has been added to the system with which drive letter. More information can be found in this instruction manual are being found. USB Drive Letter Manager is free for private and educational use, but companies and organizations are required to pay a fee.
