"Contains no virus but it IS crappy."
Version: MyPendrive 2
Contrary to the other reviewer I did not get a trojan warning (Eset Smart Security).
* Couldn't perform the simple task I wanted it for. Installs several files / programs on your USB
* automatic backup function doesn't work either
I just wanted to use the program to create a simple autorun.inf file so it shows it's content in explorer upon inserting the USB stick. (I've made one in the past in notepad, and it should be really easy but I can't find the code anymore.) Instead of the program creating an autorun.inf you have to install it on your USB drive (which it renames), creating executable files taking up around 5 MB. And it was not possible to get it to autorun the USB drive.
For the sake of this review I tried the function where you can specify folders on your C drive (or your favourites) for backup to the USB stick. It does back them up when you set it up. However, I would expect it to do this task upon inserting the USB drive later. I changed files in my test folder but... nothing happened. Well, yes; Picasa started up even though there were no pictures on the USB stick. There are better and more convenient programs to use for backup.
All in all, this program sucks.
