DriveLetterView
Use DriveLetterView to more easily manage drive letter assignment in Windows.

Many computers now have two or more hard drives installed, and in addition to this, removable drive, media card readers and CD/DVD drives can means that when you open up Explorer there are a large number of drive letters listed. DriveLetterView is a free tool that enables you to take control of these devices and better manage drive letter that have been assigned to them.

In the case of memory card readers, it is common to find that even empty media slots are listed in Explorer and have been assigned a drive letter. When the time comes to copy files to a drive, it can be difficult to determine which is the one that you should be using. Using DriveLetterView you can opt to hide drives that are not being used and easily change drive letters to suite your needs.

Run in standard mode, the program can used to simply view a list of all of the drive letters that Windows has assigned to different drives. But opt to run the program as an administrator – just right click the program and select the Run As Administrator option – you can set about the task of changing drive letters and hide unwanted drives.

The program interface makes it easy to make the necessary adjustments, but power users can take advantage of command line parameters to create batch files to automate certain tasks. In reality, DriveLetterView does little that cannot already be achieved in Windows, but it makes the entire process so much easier. The option to create an HTML list of your drives also proves useful.

Version 1.43:

Made a small change that hopefully will fix a crash problem occurs on some systems.

Verdict:

A simple free tool that is a great supplement to Windows’ own drive management tools, and much easier to use.

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
