USB Drive Letter Manager
Take control over the drive letters assigned to your USB devices

USB Drive Letter Manager (USBDLM) allows you to decide which drive letters are given to your USB drives, MP3 players, digital cameras, or most other storage devices that you attach to your computer via USB.

Are you tired of the same device always getting a different drive letter, for instance? USBDLM can save your preferred choice to the device in an INI file, and then it'll always be assigned the same letter in the future.

You can also have the program intelligently assign drive letters from a list, depending on criteria like the active user, volume label, drive size and so on. So you might have small USB keys always assigned to K, L or M, say, while larger external backup drives get X, Y or Z.

You might choose to mount the drives as folders on an NTFS drive, perhaps ensuring that C:\USB\Corsair actually points to a USB flash drive.

There's an option to hide card reader drive letters unless they contain media.

And you're able to customise your own autorun options, for example launching a backup program as soon as you connect an external USB drive.

There's plenty more, too, however accessing all this power isn't exactly straightforward. USBDLM is a service, and there's no interface provided to configure any of its features: instead you must edit an INI file to get everything working as you'd like. This isn't particularly difficult, but you will need to spend a while reading the help file to discover what's on offer. If that may be an issue, check the online documentation before you download for a taste of how the program works.

Version 4.8.9.8 brings (changelog):

- Bugfix: PnP Manager errors in Windows XP's EventLog because USBDLM unregistered devicenotifications too late on service stop
- Bugfix: With Windows AutoMount disabled USBDLM did not bring volumes online even there is a valid DriveLetters section for it
- Bugfix: MD5 check for open= worked only with uppercase MD5 hashes

Verdict:

If you don't mind editing an INI file to set everything up then USBDLM will give you a huge amount of control over your USB devices, their drive letters and how they're used

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.5

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.5 brings:

• Per chat custom notification settings and mute
• You can now include videos in your chat backups in Settings > Chats and Calls > Chat Backup
• Mark chats as unread or read with a swipe to the right
• Better support for VoiceOver
• Directly share contacts from the Contacts app and locations from Apple Maps to WhatsApp
• Lower the data usage used during WhatsApp calls in Settings > Chats and Calls 
• Earlier messages now load automatically as you scroll chats
• Improved design for cropping photos and videos
• Location messages now use a large map thumbnail
