  • 24) How does ADinf32 work with removable drives? Flash drives and USB drives?
    One of the common uses of ADinf32 is monitoring flash drives and other removable drives. There are two scenarios here when ADinf32 may be very useful:

    • You gave a flash drive to someone and the recipient wants to check the integrity of the information received.
    • The flash drive was returned to you and you want to check what changed on it while it was not in your hands.

    On removable drives, ADinf32 additionally leaves in the root directory a copy of the disk snapshot and a settings profile exported from the registry on which the snapshot was based.

    In most cases, ADinf32 correctly detects removable drives and automatically turns on the mode of saving a copy of the snapshot in the root. If this did not happen, then saving a copy of the snapshot in the root of the disk can be enabled in the disk settings, as shown in the picture on the left.
    Thus, for removable disks, two copies of disk snapshot are saved - in the usual place on the computer and in the root of the removable disk.

    What does this give us?

    Let's consider the first case when a flash drive is given to someone. The recipient of the flash drive does not have a snapshot of it on his machine and ADinf32 automatically uses a snapshot from the root directory. This will ensure the safety of information on the flash drive or detect changes, for example, that the flash drive was infected with a virus or that one of the files was replaced or damaged by someone before the flash drive reached the recipient.

    When you received your flash drive back, the launched ADinf32 will automatically use disk snapshot saved on your computer for this flash drive and you will see what changes have occurred while the flash drive was being passed around.

    When checking a flash drive on a new machine, you can use the ADinf32 settings profile, which was used to create a snapshot of the flash drive. To do this, you need to import into the registry a settings profile saved in the root directory of the flash drive as a .reg file. Sufficient for import double click on this file. In ADinf32 you need to select the imported settings profile.

    If, after checking the flash drive, the profile is no longer needed, you can delete it from the registry using the settings dialog in ADinf32.
