System hacks: mobile file manager let the operation leave a record

With the flash drive, no file operation records are left in the computer. To check the previous file operations, you have to rely on memory or manual logging. Now, in Windows 1803, we can set up a standalone environment for mobile disk management with operation memory by using a UWP application called “U Disk” (Figure 1).

First of all, search for “U Disk” app through the app store and install it. If you use it often, you can fix it by clicking the “Fix in Start Menu” button that appears on the installation page.

To use it, you need to insert your mobile device into your computer and then launch the “USB flash drive” app. The middle pane will list all the folders contained in the mobile device in a tree directory, and folders at all levels can be expanded or collapsed with small arrow icons; when you click on a folder, a list of all the files in that folder will be displayed in the right pane. Select the file you want to work with and click the “Save to” button in the upper-right corner of the window, then select the path you want to save the file to and you can easily save the file to another location (Figure 2).

After operating on the files in the removable disk, click on the “History” option in the left column of the software window, and you can see the records of the previously operated files in the subsequently opened History window list (Figure 3).

If you open the above application every time you operate your mobile device, it seems to be a bit troublesome. In fact, through the settings, we can make the mobile device automatically accept the management of the “USB flash drive” application after it is inserted, so as to achieve complete independence from the Windows File Explorer environment to manage the files in the mobile device. To do this, just go to the Windows 10 system “Settings” window, and then select “Devices → AutoPlay” in order to get to the AutoPlay settings page, and then select “Removable drive “This will enable you to automatically launch the “USB drive” app to manage the contents of your mobile device after it is inserted (Figure 4).

Tip.

The “USB” application does not depend on Windows 10’s File Explorer at all, and its own simple interface makes it easy for touch screen users to manage files. If you are using a Windows 10 mobile device, you can try this dedicated mobile file manager if you feel that using the touch screen way to operate File Explorer to manage files is not smooth or good enough.
