USB/HDD usage indicator

someone asked for READ/WRITE indicator for flash drives sometime ago.after lots of searching....

i got this neat little app on this page Smile

as this indicator is meant only for HDD therefore it only supports fixed drive letters
search this forum on how to get your drive to have fixed drive letters.
well i will do the work
using virtul drive set portable

using smithtech's drive swapper in his portable startup utility

well after you have got a fixed drive letter copy this utility to your hardrive and run it.
firstly it will only show the fixed HDD's letters in its settings.
exit the application and open the settings.dat in the same folder as the application.
it should be somethind like this

[eg]
4 ->THE ICON DISPLAYED IN THE SYSTEM TRAY
20 ->THE LED DELAY YOU SPECIFIED IN SETTINGS
CDE ->THE HDD LETTER(S) IT IS MONITERING
[/eg]

now change the letter in the third line to your flash drives fixed letter.
next time you open the application it will moniter your flash drive.;)

i havent checked the portability of this application so could someone check it for me.
