A nice little utility which becomes more useful the more drives you use regularly.
- Spelling errors, somewhat buggy
Since Drive Manager is free, we would recommend downloading it and seeing if it is useful to you. It is the subject of active and ongoing development, so we can hope that the issues we encountered will be cleared up soon.
Drive Manager is a nice little utility which becomes more useful the more drives - including USB keys and the like - you use regularly.
While Windows has some of this functionality built in, it can be a pain to access (you have to burrow through a good bit of the Control Panel to find it), and it doesn't include the level of detail you get through the free/donationware Drive Manager.
Drive Manager shows all active drives in an easy-to-read display, though you can toggle some things (such as CD or unmounted drives) on and off as needed.
You can map a folder to a "Substitute" drive, for example making your Documents folder into your "D" drive, which can be useful for file sharing purposes. Drive Manager's disk information screen is exhaustive, showing a plethora of disk properties, right down to the serial number (possibly useful for hardware inventory control).
However, Drive Manager is not without its flaws.
Drive Manager is marred by typing and spelling errors in labels, and we experienced several bugs in general use - none fatal, but they were annoying.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.
If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
Touch screen visibility and operation was great and easy to navigate. Each menu and sub-menu was in an understandable order and category
The printer was convenient, produced clear and vibrant images and was very easy to use
I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.
