Simple-to-use software program whose purpose is to help you turn any U3 smart drive into a regular USB storage device by erasing all the resilient files

editor's review





USB disks are no longer an innovation when it comes to storage devices, especially since U3 ones also offer users the possibility to install full-fledged apps, in addition to simply carry files or folders.

This functionality can be provided thanks to the U3 Launchpad, which comes pre-installed on all U3 drives. If you want to turn your U3 flash drive into a regular one, you can try U3 Launchpad Removal Tool.

If you have already tried erasing the file called LaunchU3.exe from your removable drive, you probably considered that you have succeeded in turning it into a regular storage drive.

However, not even formatting the device can manage to achieve this. The virtual CD-ROM drive is the hardest to remove, as the host system still ‘sees’ it as a physical device attached to a USB hub.

Remove files from the U3 smart drive

This is why U3 Launchpad Removal Tool is so useful: it efficiently erases all the resilient files from your U3 smart drive so that you can safely carry your files and install portable apps without any worries that they might trigger a conflict with the U3 ones.

Create backups

Before you run U3 Launchpad Removal Tool, you need to make sure you have created a backup of the files you want to keep, as the software solution deletes the contents on the drive, so you will no longer be able to run any installed app.

Unlike the default portable applications, U3 programs have the permission to write files or registry information to the host PC, yet all the data must be erased when the device is unplugged.

Bottom line

All in all, U3 Launchpad Removal Tool might seem like a simple utility, yet it is powerful enough to turn any U3 smart drive into a regular USB storage device, without leaving any traces of the U3 platform.
