CopyToFlash - please add option to wipe drive before copy

Postby Tech-Monkey » Thu Apr 25, 2019 6:24 am

I quite like this little app and there doesn't seem to be anything else like it from what I can see, so thanks for taking the time to make it.

It would be even better if there was a check box to enable wiping the drive before copying and also just wiping the drive as well. I have been using it to create a lot of USB drives with exam files on, so having to manually wipe them first is quite tedious.

Thanks

Thank you for adding the feature it does help speed things along. Appologies for not replying sooner (the last time I checked the forum was down for maintenance i think).

If there were seperate Format and Erase options, where erase would just be for example a dos command to delete all files and folders, it would be perfect as that would mean I could plug and unplug USB drives without any manual interaction (entering the USB device name) and it would be quicker in my case where the wiping a small number of files is quicker than a format.

Thanks again.

I must have completely spaced on the volume label... it is more simple and in many cases faster to perform quick format, but yes the volume label thing was a mistake. I have added option in v1.2 to set the volume label prior to starting the routine, so it shouldn't prompt you for each drive now.
