Manage USB connected devices, stop functionality and trigger safe removal, access and modify properties and more with this powerful application
A USB connection enables the computer to establish communications with a large variety of devices, not only Flash drives. Although cutting this connection is done simply by unplugging it, recommended is to issue a safe removal command so that no data is lost, nor the device damaged. This is where Zentimo xStorage Manager comes in handy, letting you view and handle anything you connect to your PC via USB.
Sits quietly in the system tray
The application spends most of its time in the system tray and notifies you whenever important changes are detected. A compact menu is put at your disposal, with an appealing look and feel which you can be changed from the settings menu. What makes it shine is that it is capable of detecting and processing even peripheral devices, with safe removal options, unlike default Windows features.
Configure behavior and visuals
Depending on your intentions, it’s a good idea to pay a visit to the configuration screen to set up rules and what the application to handle. Starting with general functions and visual tweaks, implemented settings let you disable even certain applications and Windows features that prevent access or safe removal.
View and change device properties
For security reasons, hidden devices are not directly displayed, such as your mouse and keyboard if they happen to be USB based. You can view all of them, even integrated cameras or optical drives. Device properties can be managed within a tab-structured window.
Storage parameters are displayed, with options to initiate a speed test, change icon, attribute a hotkey for safe removal, change behavior, modify volume label, or even use an implemented feature to make any application automatically run when connecting the device.
Manage any device from tray commands
Several commands are put at your disposal for each device. As such, you can stop, return functionality, show device in the tray, test speed or access corresponding properties. Notifications let you know when connection changes occur, with a refresh button available, even though device recognition is flawless.
On an ending note
Bottom line is that Zentimo xStorage Manager is a powerful application with which to keep a close watch on external devices of any type, as long as they’re connected through a USB port. Although it might seem lightweight, it’s packed with tons of configurations and options to handle connections in a far better manner that Windows does.
