Hey all.. Just found out that there is an issue with this widget.

If you have a floppy drive connected, this widget will keep "accessing" it over and over.
Its not something that is bad but in order to allow it to determine if there is a new drive (removable) inserted or removed, it scans the drives every few seconds, and it also updates the sizes every few seconds too (for when your copying lots of files to your hard drive!).

If you have a floppy that keeps being accessed, then you might not want to use this widget. Sorry, its a problem in the WMI call. Its not a DX issue its an issue with WMI (windows!)

If it doesn't bother you, then it's not hurting anything.

The only option would be to have a popup list showing the drives and allowing you to pick them from the list. Will have to look into that for a future update.

Fixed in V2.03 (this is 2.03 not 2.02 as it shows in the details, not uploading it AGAIN!)

Nice. I like the expand animation. And I also like the colour labeling to indicate how full a disk it.
And I like that it doesn't probe my floppy. ...did that come out wrong?

p.s. You can update the description of a submission by clicking Update and only edit the text without uploading any file or previews. You will get a message that it's being put in the mod queue, but it's not.
