Software Update: USB Drive Letter Manager 5.5.0

Spread the love

Version 5.5.0 of USB Drive Letter Manager has been released. This versatile program allows you to manage USB devices. For example, it is possible to assign drive letters only 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. The changelog for this release looks like this:


  • USBDLM’s balloon-tips and UsbDriveInfo look better under Windows 10 with a display scale > 100% (they are “DPI aware” and therefore no more bitmap-scaled)


  • On deregistration of the USBDLM service no-letter entries created by USBDLM where not removed, so the drive did not get a drive letter assigned
  • Under Windows 8 and 10 OnArrival for Bitlocker drives was executed immediately instead after unlock. Now twice, see Bitlocker. Bugix: UsbDriveInfo could not swap or steal drive letters since V5.4.8 because it showed a OK only messagebox instead of Yes/No which is hard to answer with Yes.
