Virtual Drive enhancements/improvements

  • Would like to suggest following improvements on Power Archiver’s Virtual Drive handlings.

    1. In PA-configuration, pls allow users to ‘set’ a fixed driveletter for their Virtual Drive, e.g. ‘Z’, or so.

    Some users, like me, may be using external drives.
    On top, I myself, am using a program called Bestcrypt, that creates password protected containers and which can be handled like any other drive, but require their own driveletters.

    Once you open a Virtual Drive and thén switch on an external drive, or open a Bestcrypt-container ( the driveletters tend to get mixed up.

    One shd go into Diskmgt to reset everything and assign the driveletters the way there were and shd be.
    With ‘Z’ as a fixed Virtual Drive this will hardly be the case.
    -Or, alternatively prompt users to tell PA what driveletter once they mount an .iso

    2. Add unmount to the context menu: users to click on the Virtual Drive - RMB - unmount.

    No need to launch PA, go into the burner menu and go thru the few steps to unmount a drive.

    Am not sure whether this requires a great deal of programming though. Actually the RMB click wud call the same procedure as right now, only, without showing windows and asking to click on ‘next’/‘next’/‘close’…


  • Vote to have the UNMOUNT voice in the context menu…tonight I spent half an hour to understand why I could not unmount a volume created by PA…before coming to the forum.

    It’s just crazy to have to launch PA again to unmount virtual drives!!

    makes sense…

    Check in 11.03 via web update - you will be able to skip few steps by launching unmount tool from PA Starter (you will still have to select what to unmount for now)… so it should save some time. Keep in mind that until PAVD.EXE is updated (monday), unmount will not go directly to unmount but to PAVD main screen.

    It is still not as useful as right click> Unmount> D:, but it will definetly help. We dont have time for anything else in minor releases, expect more improvements in PA 2010 :-).

  • sorry for my late reply. as it is now, is already a big step ahead, thank you :)
