USB Disk Ejector

USB Disk Ejector

What is USB Disk Ejector?:
A program that allows you to quickly remove USB devices in Windows XP. Its essentially a replacement for the 'safely remove hardware' feature, but is quicker and simpler than drilling down through the safely remove hardware dialog.


Additional Features:

Mobile Mode: This allows for portability; you can carry the program on a USB device and then use it to remove that device from whatever computer you are using. For example - you can run the program from a USB pen drive, enable mobile mode and then eject that pen drive. Click the 'run in mobile mode' checkbox to restart the program in mobile mode.

IPod Eyecandy: If you have an IPod connected via USB, then it will have an IPod icon instead of the usual disk icon in the program.

Minimize to Tray: If you minimize the program, it will minimize to an icon in the system tray and wont show in the taskbar until restored.

Command Line Arguments: You can start the program with two different command line options, both can be used at the same time.

/MOBILE - starts the program in mobile mode.

/SILENT - stops the balloon tip from appearing when the program is minimized.

License: Freeware

Hi!
There is a new release with improved portability.
It works under vista too.
I often ask myself: "What have I to ask myself?"...

Thanks for testing Dev Eject, loin2kolpotoru. I mentioned it because it is listed as freeware on many tech blogs and download sites... go figure.

Disclaimer: I wrote this before I saw that our entry's license had a link pointing to github. Still sort of annoying that the source was so hard to find.

Yes and incidentally USB Disk Ejector claims to be but I can't find the source.
  • The site's "source" page doesn't contain the code.
  • The site's official USB Disk Ejector page says its somewhere else on the site
  • One of the posts about version 2 of the program points to a Google code address that does not work.
  • A broader Google search didn't help.
On the other hand if I just haven't looked hard enough, ProEject has another advantage:
  • Its GPL'd, while Disk Ejector's code has no license (that I can find).
