If you use lots of different types of drives on your computer, like hard disk, USB pen drives, memory card or network drives, then identifying them to view information might be a difficult job. I always get confused with drive letters C, D, E…. R, S etc.

Drive Manager is a free utility that lets you manage and view their information quickly and efficiently. Whether mapped network drives, thumb drive (USB memory sticks), smart media and compact flash, CD-ROM or DVD, this utility is perfect to manage them.

Drive Manager

Drive Manager has been written to help you easily identify drives which are of the same type. As well as displaying the volume label it also displays vendor information so that multiply CD/DVD drives and removable drives such as USB thumb drives can be differentiated by their manufacturers name, version and revision date.
