Interesting :)

Though I cannot find in the attached ANY script, only a compiled app.

Can't we have the actual script? :unsure:

You may be interested in this:

where some alternate ways (i.e. without using Diskpart) are being explored.

Hi Jaclaz, see v2.3

Using windows register requires a restart to see the changes, I started with that idea as well. Thats why I use windows diskpart. I use windows net to change network drives.

I do not publish the script yet because I am still working on it. :puke:
