Did you ever forget your USB stick at work, and then realized at home that you badly needed some files on it? If so, then this free tool is for you. pcwUnstick is a Visual Basic script from PC WELT, a German computer magazine. The script opens a pop up window whenever you shut down your PC if a USB-stick is still plugged-in. It works with Firewire hard disks too.

The installation instruction at their web site is in German. Basically, you just have to add the script to your logoff scripts with the group policy editor gpedit.msc. I wrote down below a detailed instruction in English. Looks pretty complicated, but it should only take you a minute or so.

    I am not able to run gpedit.msc. I am using Windows 7. Please clarify as to how to open gpedit to make changes in the registry settings?
