Podcasting What Geeks Really Want To Hear

Tuesday, March 20, 2007

Travis mentioned in Episode 51 about hating USB thumb drives with “U3” technology. Especially scary since it shows up as a CDROM drive on windows (usually with an ‘autorun.inf’ file – very bod). Anyways, my buddy Brian just happened to bitch to me tonight about this shitty USB drive he had. I grabbed it up, did some Google searches, and about 5 minutes later, reformatted his USB drive without the U3 partition (and gained an addition 5MB of space).

I don’t know the legalities of distributing it, so I’ll just say ‘do a google search for U3_Uninstaller.exe‘. It’s Windows only, takes only a few seconds to run, and worked like a gem on the drive I tried it on.
