Yes.

You can adjust the icon grid step in ROX, so that it becomes much easier to align them.

1. Go to one of your drive icons on the desktop and right-click on one.
2. In the pop-up menu, go to 'Rox-filer', and then, go to 'options'.
3. Click on 'Pinboard' on the left side of the pop-up window.
4. Look at the bottom of the of the options area in the window to see the 'icon grid step' option. Set this to 'coarse'.

It should now be much easier to align your icons.

If you want to be able and save and/or load multiple icon arrangements, here a link to a pet made by trio that does just that.

Hope this helps.
