Never forget your junkdrive again!

People often log off their computers with their junk drives, which may include unencrypted private data, still in the USB port. Well if your one of those people, this little trick will help you remember to unplugged your junk drive from your computer. The trick is implemented in a one-line Visual Basic script that reminds you to unplug your drunk drive with a small, single pop up message at log out. All you need to do is simply follows these steps:

  1. Save this one-line Visual Basic Script to C:\WINDOWS\System32\GroupPolicy\User\Scripts\Logoff on Windows XP.
  2. From the “Run Box” (Start -> Run), type “gpedit.msc”, and hit enter. (without the quotes)

3. In User Configuration -> Windows Settings -> Logoff, press the Add Script button and select the thumb-drive-reminder.vbs file.

A very helpful tip indeed.
