Share Virtual Drive

Recommended Posts

We have a couple of virtual drives that users place data in. However we are unable to access them via an admin share since they are virtual. How would I go about creating a script that the user can double click to create an admin share?

I know the command in DOS is: net share <sharename>$=<driveletter>:\ but i'm not sure how to execute that in a script.

Thanks in advance.

Should be something along the lines of...

$sharename = "Some Name"
$driveletter = "x"
Run(@ComSpec & " /c net share '" & $sharename & "'$=" & $driveletter & ":\")

You should be able to have spaces in the share name as I have shown above. If it doesnt allow spaces then please let me know.

I am not able to test the above code, but I do believe it should work.

Edit 01: added space before /c. I forgot about that.

Thanks,

JS

I tried using the following but it didn't work. I'm not sure of the message that i'm getting since the cmd prompt closes to fast.

$sharename = "W$"
$driveletter = "W"
Run(@ComSpec & " /c net share '" & $sharename & "'$=" & $driveletter & ":\")

Any help would be appreciated

Change /c to /k and the box will remain open.


Agreement is not necessary - thinking for one's self is!
