    USB Stick Share

    Hi All!

    ive been asked me to look into the following,

    Can you setup a share on a usb pen drive? I want it so that we as admins can browse remotely into pen drives, we've got the hard drive share (C$) but how can i do this to pen drives?

    Any one ever done this?

    Ta, Mart

    I can tell you how you can quickly do it in the context of one machine.
    Right click on "My Computer"
    go to Manage:
    go to "Shared Folders":
    go to Shares:
    then right click in the pane with your current shares (C$ etc):
    click "New File Share":
    click next:
    in the "Folder to Share:" box type in the drive letter the the stick would be assigned (F:\ for example)
    then in "Share Name" type something like F$
    Done.

    You can get windows to automatically share CD-ROM drives, usb drives and floppy's.
    Two keys under HKLM\Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\W inlogon implement these settings: AllocateFloppies and AllocateCDRoms. (AllocateCDRoms works for usb sticks as wel)
    Both are of type REG_SZ.

    Value Meaning

    0:Administrators in the domain can gain access to data on the compact discs in the CD-ROM drive.

    1:Only the user logged on locally can gain access to data on the compact discs in the CD-ROM drive.
