DirectNet Drive


DirectNet Drive is a software program developed by FmotSoft. The most common release is 1.2.5, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. It adds registry entry for the current user which will allow the program to automatically start each time it is rebooted. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The setup package generally installs about 22 files and is usually about 7.54 MB (7,903,744 bytes). The program uses the GLib GNOME library. Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows 8. While about 69% of users of DirectNet Drive come from the United States, it is also popular in Austria and Germany.
