arrived is a little Windows tool that will invoke a command whenever a new USB device, or more specifically drive, arrives in the system. That is, whenever you plug in or remove a USB drive such as a USB key or an external hard drive. So now you also know where the name came from.


No installation required. Download the binaries (32 and 64bit) from my website. Use an archiver to unpack the archive, I recommend 7zip, and then place the .exe files into a folder listed in your PATH environment variable.


The program should run on Windows 2000 and later. Itanium CPUs are not supported, but feel free to build that yourself, if needed.



arrived <command> [-only=drive_type,...]

The default if --only is not explicitly given is removable. Otherwise the following drive types should be valid:

  • unknown
  • noroot
  • removable
  • fixed
  • remote
  • cdrom
  • ramdisk
