If you are concerned about privacy, for example, you can format the drive with encryption and a password. Disk Utility can also partition a USB drive, creating two or more virtual drives from the same disk.
In this memory, E devices supplied by mobile operators may contain 3G dialer software written by the operator, while Huawei-branded devices contain Huawei's original dialing software, which they call 'Dashboard'.
Huawei's Dashboard and updates for it are also available from Huawei's website,  or the Flashing the firmware of this device doesn't change the USB Mass Storage memory used for the operator's software, therefore connection settings such as APN will be retained. When the device is first attached, Windows will automatically run the software stored on it, unless that feature has been turned off in Windows.
This feature can be bypassed by pressing the Shift key while attaching the device, or by turning off the autostart feature entirely. It is possible to remove the operator branding by flashing the device with Huawei's Mobile Partner software.
Huawei does not publicly release firmware updates for its devices, only Dashboard updates. The standard way of obtaining firmware updates is through the service provider, however some firmware updates are publicly available over the Internet and some users have cross-flashed i.
Updating the modem's Dashboard does not remove or affect the network-lock that may be in effect with modems purchased subsidized from a service provider that prevents you from using the modem with any service provider.
However updating the modem's firmware may remove this network-unlock or even the opposite, turn a network-unlock free modem into an unlocked one. The device comes with two cables, one short and one long. The long one has two USB A interfaces, one used for data and power and the other optionally only for assistance power in case the computer is not able to provide the full mA milliamperes required for the device to work from one USB interface only.
If the connection is frequently disrupted or is unstable or usable at slow speeds onlythe two plug USB cable should be used instead. The E antenna is internal; the USB cable does not act as an antenna. The external antenna connector is not accessible without opening the device voiding any warranty.
It is still possible to connect an external antenna without opening the device and using the internal external antenna connector. There is also a way to do this, open the modem, remove the small internal antenna, and solder a UMTS-antenna cable onto the board.
The warranty will be invalidated, but it can be a cheap and functional way to connect an external antenna. Some network operators selling the E, however, replace Huawei's software with their own, which often is software-locked albeit not SIM-locked to work only with the operator's own network.
End-users can use also third-party open source software PyHumod or freeware MWconn. Since the release of Windows 7 users have reported a number of issues that require a firmware upgrade to the modem.
Huawei have released new firmware to the operators, who have generally made it available on their websites. The firmware upgrade must be carried out from a machine running Windows XP or Windows Vista and which can see the modem.
Once this is complete Windows 7 can see and use the modem. The following operator s are known to replace Huawei's software with their own:Remove the write protection from the latest round of Dell USB recovery flash drives. Many a time, it becomes necessary for us to write protect our USB flash drive so as to protect it from viruses and other malware programs.
As flash drives are so popular and most widely used to move data between computers, they are the prime target for attackers as a means to get infections. Dear Twitpic Community - thank you for all the wonderful photos you have taken over the years.
