    "Simple. Works great in Windows 7."

    January 20, 2012  |   By dazweeja


    Dead simple to use. Allows for FAT32 partitions over 32GB. Works as advertised.


    Should really install itself in Program files directory rather than C:\DriveKey as default.


    To those having trouble running this in Windows 7, right-click and 'Run As Administrator'. It's very common for Windows UAC to block a program like this, especially one that can format a drive. This is a Windows security feature, not a failure of this program.

    Thank you for that insight! I spent hours last night trying to figure out why it wouldn't run. I am the only user on my computer and I am set as admin so it never occurred to me to "run as admin" Thanks!
