Lock or hide the available drives on your computer so as to protect all the information stored on them from any unauthorized access

editor's review





Drive-Thru is a nice program that was created to help manage the hard drives and other storage devices. The tool can be particularly useful if you have multiple drives or simply want to have more control over them than Windows grants you.

The program has a simple interface that should make it easy to handle by all users.

There are multiple tools that are made available by this utility. For instance, you may choose to hide any of the drives on the computer, thus protecting sensitive information from prying eyes. Alternatively, you may lock access to these by selecting them from the list.

It’s also possible to disallow the AutoRun feature, which can be done for hard drive partitions or to certain drive types, such as USB Flash Disk, HDD, CD/DVD and RAM Disk.

The app also allows you to create ISO files off of various CDs and DVDs. These can later be mounted with a special tool, without needing to load the disc in the drive.

Some additional drive configuration options are available. Thus, you may fiddle with the drive information, access a disk management feature or safely remove hardware from the computer. The drive letters can be displayed before and after the label. The “Write protection” can also be managed with this tool.

All in all, Drive-Thru is a nice program that can be quite useful to have around. While the program wasn’t designed with first-time users in mind, its intuitive layout should make the tool easy to navigate even by those with less experience.
