I am writing this post here about an awesome UFD UTILITY that I came across. What’s this all about? Do you want to partition pen-drive (USB device for mass storage). Well you can do this by a utility called USB Flash Disk Utility.
As USB partition utility, it provides convenient user-interface enables you to create,configure and manage partitions of your Pen drive(USB flash drive) Version 3.0 adds support for disk & partition copy/clone.
Partitioning your USB/pen/thumb drive
All you have to do is Download the Archive, extract the contents in your USB flash drive and you are good to go. Partition USB drive or turn it in to bootable USB HDD,or create a bootable virtual CD-Rom and much more. But please read the Users Manual carefully before jumping in to the action.
You can download this UFD Utility here.
This utility offers much more than just partitioning
1. Partition Manager
The icon is able to use to partition UFD into “public area” only or “public area + security area”. It supports to modify disk label and password for security area.
2. Boot Manager
The icon is able to make UFD as a boot disk as USB-ZIP or USB-HDD.
3. Security Manager
The icon is able to Login security area after correct password key in and logout after data access for protection.
4. Autorun Manager
Create virtual CDROM partition with auto-run feature embedded on top of “Partition Manager” made 1 or 2 partition areas. This tool also supports ISO image file making and one single “Removable Disk”default setting call back function.
5. Flash Mail Manager
The icon is able to copy mail, address book and accounts in the Outlook Express to the UFD. It can use to read mail at any Windows Outlook Express platform.
6. PC Lock Manager
Lock PC to prevent unwanted operation during setting time after un-plug UFD. User can define PC lock time and text/picture display they prefer during PC lock time.
7. Bookmark Manager
Copy my favorites in the Internet Explorer to the UFD. It can be used to visit favorite website on any Windows Internet Explorer platform.
8. Security Folder
Put the file you want to secret or compress to the vfzip folder under public area. The tool will create a special vfbest.vfo Zip file. The Best feature of this utility i like is Partition manager. Suppose you have a 8 GB Flash Drive,and you partition it into two parts of 4GB each. Your UFD will be partitioned in two areas public and security. If you insert your UFD in your PC after partitioning it will only show public area and for accessing security area you will have to log in through security manager of this utility. So that means all your important data will be secured with a password. I am providing a download link for this program.
