editor's review





mUSBfixer is a small software application specialized in formatting and repairing USB flash drives using a set of straightforward tools. It can be installed on Windows XP, Vista, 7, and 8.

Clean feature lineup

After a fast and simple-to-handle installation process, you are welcomed by an intuitive and minimalist design that allows you to set up the tweaking options in a short amount of time.

All dedicated parameters are embedded into a single panel so they are basically placed at your fingertips. There’s no support for a help manual, only a few online details can be found about the configuration process. However, you can venture into tweaking the entire process on your own because the built-in features look highly intuitive.

Configuration settings

mUSBfixer gives you the possibility to choose the target device from a drop-down list. The tool is able to automatically detect all connected devices. You may opt for processing pen drives or SDs. In addition, you are allowed to refresh the list with currently connected devices with a single click.

The application comes with support for two main actions. You are offered the freedom to format a pen drive or SD which cannot be normally formatted. Plus, you are allowed to make use of the ‘Recover shortcut folders’ feature in order to convert shortcut directories into normal folders and recover data.

Tests have shown that mUSBfixer carries out a task pretty quickly. It does not eat up a lot of CPU and memory resources so the overall performance of the computer is not hampered.

Final remarks

To sum things up, mUSBfixer comes packed with a few but efficient tools for helping you format USB drives and recover data by converting shortcut folders to actual directories that you can browse. Thanks to its intuitive and easy-to-decode configuration parameters, it can be tweaked by rookies and professionals alike.
