It takes just an instant to lock, hide or disallow autorun on any or all of your drives with this simple, effective tool. Easy Disk Drive Safeguard's simple, check box heavy interface cleanly displays all program options on one screen. This app is so easy to use, only the most novice users will need the short Help manual.

All 26 possible drives are listed, each with check boxes to hide, lock, or disallow autorun. Click a box and press apply or Ctrl-A and you've tightened security of the selected drive. A pair of additional options round out the application. With just a click, users can disallow autorun by drive type or enable drive write protection for all external removable drives.

The good news is that the application is available only to administrator accounts and that locking is immediate. The bad news is that users can accidentally lock or hide their system drives. Haste is therefore not recommended.

Any user looking to easily lock or hide drives should give this application a test run. It gets thumbs up for ease of use and effectiveness.
