How to found your lost USB pen drive

1/13/2009 01:35:00 AM |

Now a days USB pen drives are becoming very popular but the disadvantage with them is their frequency of getting lost.I myself had lost my 2 Kingston pen drives.But now you can prevent yours from getting lost by using a free utility called USB Lost and Found which can be used on Windows 2000/XP/Server/Vista.

USB Lost and Found is a free tool to setup your USB drive to keep unauthorized users from keeping your USB drive if it were to be lost. USB Lost and Found has a method of Message which when the user tries to use your USB drive it comes up with a message box that tells them to return it, along with your contact information, and denies access to the USB drive. This could be useful if the USB was missed from you and someone gets it, he/she can contact you to get it back to you.

Its free version has limited protection because it provides protection by only one method while pro has more than one.The PRO version which comes for $3.49 has another method called lock down.Lock Down immediately locks the user’s computer when the USB drive is accessed, covering the whole screen and denying access. When the computer is in lockdown mode, hotkeys such as Alt+F4 and Ctrl+Shift+Esc don’t work. Only Ctrl+Alt+Del would work and you can shutdown/restart/logoff your computer.
