Virtual Drives Manager is a tool for defining virtual drives in your filesystem. Virtual drives are symbolic links that points to existing directories on your filesystem. This is essentially a graphical version of subst.exe.

Note: This application periodically tries to contact www.appcontrols.com. If you are using a personal firewall, you can simply block it from accessing the network. But if you are really fussy about such things, then you might not want to use the program at all.

Category:
Runs on:Win95 / Win98 / WinME / WinNT / Win2K / WinXP
Writes settings to: Windows registry, but does not affect the portability of the application.
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch VirtualDrives.exe.

Another way of solving the above "phoning home" issue is to edit you 'hosts' file and point www.appcontrols.com to 127.0.0.1 -- be forewarned though that, should you do this, you won't be able to open the webpage without reversing the edit...

9.5/10 points.

I like this tool very much and use it all the time. It is my default color picker and window magnifier (window is resizable). It would get a 10/10 if it remembered window size and position from one session to another in an .ini file.

Despite what is written in the Synopsis above, I don't think that it does image grabbing.

@CD: You will have discovered by now that ZZoom offers you the option to copy an image of just its window content to the clipboard by pressing 'i' while the app is in focus. Clicking the '?' on the menu bar, one can see the command keys. This capture function is this app's weak point for me, and honestly I'm wondering how it saves settings between sessions. Anyone?

My only issue with this app is that it does not work with Semi-transparent windows. This makes it a bit of a boon to use with screen rulers.
