USB Safely Remove 5.2 released!

USB Safely Remove 5.2 released!

We are pleased to announce the new release of USB Safely Remove 5.2! The new version includes Windows 8 support, drive letter management improvements and minor bug fix. Download now or read more below.

Windows 8 support

Several months ago Microsoft released a new version of Windows. It doesn't matter if we love it or not, but we have to support it. Therefore now USB Safely Remove has passed compatibility tests with Windows 8, furthermore we have added a nice MOdern UI-style skin, you can see it in the begin of the post. On Windows 8 it's set by default, however you can choose it in the settings on the other versions of Windows.

Fixing a drive letter to several removable drives

Per many requests we have added an ability to fix a drive letter not only to a one drive but to the several drives on the condition that you connect them at different times. This feature might be used for backup purposes. When you connect two or more drives with the same fixed drive letter USB Safely Remove handles this case and displays a dialog that allows you to choose a temporary drive letter for the drives that weren't fixed to a letter. Read more on setup here.

Fixed drive letter sign in the menu

A small but useful improvement for those who use fixing drive letters feature. Now when a drive is fixed to a letter a small lock sign is displayed in the row of the drive.

Another improvements and bug fixes

  • Folder mount points are now displayed in a full size (not truncated)
  • Card reader drives are displayed even when the option "Display storage device volumes" is disabled
  • Skin scheme file now has usual web format of the colors
  • The SATA system drive was displayed in the list by default. Now it's displayed only when you enable the option "Display all storage devices"
  • Now the program doesn't add itself to the Windows startup on each launch, it does this when it's needed. So if you have a kind of startup monitor it won't display you warnings on each Windows startup
  • Fixed: Verbose logging was enabled by default
  • Fixed: Autorun programs called before changing drive letters (e.g. for fixed  drive letters). This caused double calling of the autorun programs.
  • Fixed: The device menu might be displayed when user launched TaskManager (Win 8) or Customize tray icons dialog (Win 7, 8)
  • Fixed: some other minor bugs
Be happy and enjoy using USB Safely Remove!

Hello, You can always revert

You can always revert back to the giveaway version of the program, you can get it here (I suppose it's version 4.7). As for other issues here we cannot help, since the technical support is not available for users of of free promo licenses. If you wish to get technical support and future upgrades consider upgrading to a PRO license, see: //

Thanks Daniel, it's added!

Hello, I used to have v4.7

I used to have v4.7 free promotional before, but now I'm on new PC w/ win 8.1 I'm considering move to purchase updated version. 1) Will I get future updates if I purchase 5.2.1, even when version changes to >=6.x.x? 2) The post only lists Win 8 as supported. Can I be sure that v.5.2.1. has no compatibility problem on Win 8.1?

P.S. better weed out some ad posts above. ain't looking good for sure...
