Some nice updates on this tool :

  • Added 'Speed Test' option, which allows you to test the read/write speed of your drive.
  • The drive letters information is now updated automatically when you plug or unplug a USB device.
  • Added 'Last Update Time' column.

The Speed test is a great new feature that allows to measure the dirve speed.
