Hey all. We are having issues at a variety of our locations regarding flash drives. A few of our clients have network drives mapped to E: and their optical drive, by default, is of course D:.

Rather than hit every single machine (there are many), is there any sort of script I could run to map the optical drive to Z: so the USB drive can take over D: when plugged in?

Re-mapping the network drives is 100% out, so, any help re-mapping the optical drive instead would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

Chebwa

Chebwa,

Checkout the diskpart command line utility. It can be used interactively or it can be executed using a simple script file.

Here's a description with brief usage instructions:

Additional help is available withing the program itself. Just type help at the diskpart prompt.
