This version adds some interesting and important new features – system wide device name change, preventive flushing of disk buffers on forced stop, improved device stop and bugfix.
System wide device name change
Now when you change the device name in the program you will see the same name in the Device Manager, the Windows drive properties and in all other programs that displays devices. A useful feature when you need to use the device in other programs.
Preventive flushing of disk buffers
Now the program flushes the disk buffers (for storage devices) on the forced device stop. This maximizes the data safety of your drives.
Improved forced stop
The previous versions couldn’t forcibly stop devices consist from a drive and a virtual CD. Usually this virtual CD contains some software that allows to unlock the encrypted content of the drive. That software in turn prevents the whole drive to be safely removed. The new version allows to forcibly stop even such drives.
- The device menu wasn’t displayed in some multimonitor configurations
- The device menu button (three dots) was overlapped by the Browse button when the “Display device name” option was disabled
- In some cases technical error displayed on device stopping
