Unmount virtual drive

  • Alpha Testers

    are there any plans in the pipeline to implement an option to unmount a virtual drive by means of a systray icon perhaps whereby I could just right click it and tell it to unmount?

    or have I perhaps missed the boat here and someone else has possibly requested it?
    I couldn’t see anything in my search for such an option….figured lots of members may find this option useful.

    If you use PA starter the option to Unmount/Remove Device is already there.

    thanks Luxor…I forgot that option even existed.

  • I was also vainly looking for an unmount feature.

    Am sorry and maybe I should be ashamed of myself, but … PA Starter ??

    Right now I am using the rmb to mount an .iso, but am using Directory Opus, rmb->virtual drive to unmount it.

    Wished that
    a) a fixed drive letter cud be configured e.g. 'Z’
    b) unmount be available in the context menu
    or at least optionally add this to the context menu.

    thank you!

    PA Starter is in your Powerarchiver directory…
    it’s an *.exe file (PASTARTER.EXE)

    after you run PA Starter the icon indicated in the screenshot will show in your systray…right click on it and all your options are in the menu.

  • Thanks a lot!
    Frankly, I ‘forgot’ this option :o as I disabled PA to startup at PC boot in order to cut down autostarting applications to a minimum.

    Still - as after all the unmount-option is in fact available - I keep on hoping that that the developers will also make it available to be added to the usual context menu…

    and also have an option to assign a driveletter when mounting. Reason for asking this is that I have external drives that I sometime use (for backups). PA is taking the first free driveletter, which I have assigned to one of the ext.drives.
    Consequently I should go into Windows Control to re-assign driveletters.

    Anyway, thanks again!

    yep I agree it would be handy in the context menu…
    as I to disabled PA Starter to minimise autostarting applications.

  • Alpha Testers

    thanks for the info…I’ll check it out.
