Hello again,

Been quite active on these forums during the past few weeks.

For both USBSafelyRemove and Zentimo products it would be super cool to have a feature which is able to display previously connected devices devices similar to the way how many Windows applications have a 'Recent files' menu item.

Basically I have a recently corrupted 2.5 external hdd (by fault of my own) and I couldn't remember the GB capacity of the drive for when buying a new one. So rather than me wasting time unscrewing the enclosure to read that sort of disk information written onto the disk, it would've been awesome if within USBSafelyRemove I could view the last connected devices I had opened just to get this information quicker.

A downwards list of previously connected devices/drives should exist along with the device's icon/custom icon to the left side with a collapse button beside each drive name upon pressing would collapse to display the info (disk name, manufacture, last DISK SIZE, last used space, time checked etc) to the user.

With Windows-like sort columns for organizing the view

Ability to enable/disable the entire feature, probably it should be disabled on installation default (security reasons). Also ability to set the max number of devices to store in the list with removal of duplicates if same device was connected more than once in same day, week etc

What do you think?

Hi Bull,
Thanks for your active posting here, we appreciate that!

It seems that you need a kind of logging: what devices were connected to the computer, when disconnected and etc. That's an interested idea and we may probably add it to one of further versions of Zentimo. Maybe to into USB Safely Remove as well.

Igor,

Could you or another team member,

Please update this thread if you add the feature in future. Please update this thread just to notify me. Something like 'dear bull, we have now added this feature into [product+version]'

thank you

You could put an advanced one in Zentimo - printing fucntions, copy info to clipboard etc.

.. and then a basic one of this feature in USB Safely Remove in where it would only display and export to text file.

In USB Safely Remove the best place to put this feature IMO would be on double-clicking tray icon (window that shows) and put it as a tab like "history of devices".

And in the 'Options' - some settings to control how many devices are logged 1-1000. All info's could be written to a single text file in AppData but on export be extracted from that text file to a user saved text file. just an idea.
