USB Stick Share
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$) but how can i do this to pen drives?
Any one ever done this?
I can tell you how you can quickly do it in the context of one machine.
Right click on "My Computer"
go to Manage:
go to "Shared Folders":
go to Shares:
then right click in the pane with your current shares (C$ etc):
click "New File Share":
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$
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.
