situation is this: I have an external HD plugged into my new 'puter. When I power up the puter, the HD comes on. For reasons best known to me, the external drive is mounted under the desk.
Is there such a thing as a switched USB cable, so I can effectively disconnect the USB lead to the external drive, without reaching around the back of the 'puter and pulling the plug?
Or a software alternative? Something with button to connect/disconnect a drive?
