Drive Manager v4.20

Checker on 30 Jun 2012
  • 1MB (uncompressed)
  • Suggested by Gary

Drive Manager enables drive identification/information, hiding drive letters, and substituting drive letters for folders. For drive identification, it displays vendor information so that multiple CD/DVD drives and removable drives (such as USB memory drives) can be differentiated by their vendor and product ID.

Great, just the job for finding out the serial number of my USB stick - it works, clean and simple.

UPX Tool v1.0.3 (unofficial 1.1.1)

UPX is a tool that can reduce the size of system files (EXE and DLL) significantly. No additional software is required after compression and some programs will even run faster due to fewer read operations.

UPX Tool is a GUI wrapper for UPX, able to both compress and decompress.

There is an unofficial update created by Lupo PenSuite (UPX Tool+ 1.1.1) that can be download here. The main advantage of this update is functionality with UPX 3.0 (improved compression via LZMA).

Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: No
License: Freeware/Open Source
How to extract:
  1. Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice
  2. The version of UPX included in bin\upx.exe is not the latest version, so you may wish to replace it with the latest version from the UPX website
  3. Launch UPXTool.exe

    Note: I have included a direct download of UPX Tool packaged with the latest version of UPX. Just click on the "download here" link above.

The link to UPX Tool+ is fixed..

Just remember that programs compressed using UPX will get reported as a virus by some anti virus software.

Have to love false positives and lazy programmers.

The instructions no longer seem valid (there is no $_OUTDIR directory for example) and the download link is is now http://www.vibestreamer.com/downloads/

Though the version number seems to match. Strange.

Thanks, download link corrected. :)

It's a pity Vibe Streamer has been discontinued. The developer open-sourced it- https://github.com/versionstudio/vibestreamer , but its very unlikely that someone will take over the project. For me Vibe Streamer has two major flaws- it doesn't support Unicode and it can stream only lossy MP3s.
