Desk Drive is a simple Windows application which provides you with a quick and simple way to access the data within the external storage devices that you connect to your PC. The program lives on your system tray from where you can access and configure its settings according to your needs.

This utility adds desktop icons pointing to any external storage device your connect to your computer. By double-clicking over the new icons, you can reveal the contents of the connected storage device. The application supports CDs, USB drives, RAM devices, etc.

You also have access to various options which speed up the process of getting access to the data within your external storage device, remind you to eject the gadgets, etc. Furthermore, you can configure the program to automatically launch at system login and exclude certain letters when adding new icons to your desktop (for example, exclude A:\, C:\, etc.).

The only feature I'd add to this application would be an option to immediately eject the connected storage devices. For instance, it would be great if you could define a global hotkey for ejecting drives.

Still, this program might prove to be of good use, especially if you connect external storage devices to your PC often. Plus, the app comes without a price.
