    Desktop Icons for Mounted Volumes in Win7?

    Is there any utility or setting which will put an icon on the desktop when a new drive (such as a truecrypt drive)
    is mounted and remove it when the drive is dismounted? The utility I used in XP doesn't remember icon locations
    in Win7-64 and I'm hoping there's a replacement somewhere.

    That's the "utility I used in XP" I mentioned. Probably should have given the name. I've reported the problem with Desktop Media to the developer, but I'm not expecting a quick answer.

    Thank you.

    I checked, and couldn't find any mention of drive icons on the desktop anywhere in the features list for Winbubbles. Thanks.

    sehlat,
    Hello... I'm using version 1.76 but still think that the new version is the same ... you might try and do a search for 1.76 as Winbubbles site is being repaired ...Normally you can get it there Regards Fred

    As far as I can tell, Winbubble allows you to set/customize the icons, but it does not monitor for mounted/dismounted drives and place/remove a matching icon on the desktop for either event. Desktop Media does just that, but doesn't remember the icon locations in Win7X64.
