Post subject:  Using icon and name for USB pen drive

My favourite USB pendrive tip is to put an autorun.inf file on the root of my drive containing this:

[autorun]
label=Name_of_PenDrive
icon=Icons\Favourite_Icon.ico

Then my PenDrive always has the Name I specify and uses the Icon I specify (and which lives on the PenDrive itself). I only use Windows XP or above so this may not work on 98/ME etc.

Could SafelyRemove check which icon is specified in autorun.inf (if the file exists) and use this icon in the SafelyRemove dialogs?

Hello FleshMan!
Yes, it's a good idea! In feature versions we should integrate our program with autorun. What do you think about another feature - to setup the icon you choose in USB Safely Remove as icon in autorun.inf file? I mean the next - when you set up the icon in USB Safely Remove, this icon would be automatically written to USB storage and would be specified in autorun.inf as this drive icon.
