    Remapping USB drive letters in Citrix

    When i plug a USB drive into a WinCE thin client it appears as drive A in the session i'd like to change that to a higher drive, i found a link on how to do this before that involved editing the very odd CE registry but i can't find it.

    Anyone have a link or know how to do it?

    Cheers.

    I'll take a look at that util thanks.

    There is a way of setting it in the Win CE image as someone set our CE6 units to select G: rather than A:

    I actually sorted it thanks, it was fine once i found the 'regdump' and 'ceregimp' commands which aren't very well documented to say the least.

    The key was
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WBT\Clients\ Registration\ICA\Global\ClientDrive]
    "DriveLetter"="g:"
    "MountPoint"="\\filterfs"
    it's set to A:\ by default on the T5530 WinCE devices which is a pain as it always appears as A:\ in the Citrix session. You have to dump the registry to a text file edit it and then import it.

    Cheers.
