Corsair Drive Tools is a collection of easy-to-use programs to enhance your USB Flash Drive experience.

In this first public beta release, Corsair Drive Tools incorporates a file sync function that enables you to easily synchronize your data between computers at home and computer at work.

See the post above for compatibility. What is your OS version? Also, can you post your complete system specifications (hardware and the OS version) so that our software guys can take a look. Remember, this is a beta.

Seriously? 155 files? What a mess!

Gotta say, I'm reluctant to do this to my root directory, which I try to keep clean. Sure would be nice if it went into it's own directory somewhere, so it could at least be easily removed.

Just as feedback, I don't use a Mac and don't intend to. I do use Linux, and give much higher priority to programs that work in Linux and Windows (which I have to use for work). A version that worked in Linux might even be worth messing up my root directory to this degree.

Lacking that, I'll probably just try running it from it's own directory, and if that doesn't work, delete it.

Before I load this onto a drive, where can I find out exactly what is included, what it does, etc.

The post above mentions 155 files. Looking in the ZIP archive there are only a few so I imagine they will be extracted from the .exe archive. I'd love to know what they all are first.

Is there a web page that expands a bit on the contents?

Thanks!

Default Will Drive Tools Work with NTFS?

Hey Ram Guy, Thanks for the info regarding JackFlash / Beta Drive Tools. I recently purchased a 16GB survivor and opted to re-format memory in NTFS. This choice was due to size and number of files (roughly 42,000). Will the current version of Drive Tools work with NTFS format? =and= will Drive Tools enable "seeing" & utilizing the full 16GB (15.1GB, formatted)? Main purpose is on-the-road document back up and synchronization between Office PC and laptop. Thanks.... Kayab

The File System is no problem you can use Fat Fat 16 or Fat32 or NTFS as long as the system you are using will see and use that file system.
