Use Your Windows Phone 7 As A USB Stick

You’ll need to have Zune installed and one device connected for at least one time. To enter the USB Storage, you’ll need to close Zune. Then, you can use your WP7 as a simple USB stick.
The tool requires .NET 2.0 and has been tested on NT 6.x (Vista and Windows 7).
For more information and to download the .exe, head on over to the application thread.
