Protect your PC from abusive use of removable media with 1st Disk Drive Protector. This software will easily help you enforce whether your users are allowed to use removable media or access your local drives. You can not only hide, lock and prevent usage of local, network, Floppy and USB drives but also disable the AutoRun feature for them. This will let you significantly reduce the risk of unauthorized software installations and cluttering of local disk drives. The design of the program offers you functionality in a very simple way. The main window of the program shows you all available drive letters in group boxes along with the settings you can apply to the drives that the letters represent. You can hide and lock all the drive letters you do not normally use to prevent any inserted removable media from appearing and being accessible in My Computer. The AutoRun feature can be disabled for specific drives or drive types. If you disable the AutoRun feature for drive types, you can, for example, disable the AutoRun feature for all USB drives, for all CD/DVD drives, for all RAM disks or for all removable HDD drives. A password protection can be applied to the program to prevent your users form changing the security settings you enforce.
