Delete written file after write

nice program - glad I found that to keep my external disks spinning.

I was wondering if it would not make sense to delete the file that is written to the HD, right after it was written - just to keep the drives clean.
I have send the proposal to mladen via mail, but have not yet heard back - so I decided to try it my self and made the one line code change.
This works perfectly on my drives, no more files left on them and the drive continues to run ...

I was wondering if others would like that as well ...

I would have a second proposal:
It would be great if the program could take the drive name into account. Often a drive letter is taken by e.g. my USB stick when the external HD is turned off - obviously it does not makes senso to keep a USB stick running.
That was especially annoying as long as the file was kept on the drive - with my current change it is less important - still it would be nice to only write to the file if the drive name is identical to the configured drive - should be fairly easy to implement?

Regards and thanks for the nice program - HacMac

Sorry for not answering to you sooner.

Anyway, you have the proposed features in the new 1.4 version.
