Windows 7: Drive mount alternatives

19 Apr 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium x64
Drive mount alternatives

I setup some drives as mounts but they do not display the real drives size in explorer, instead displaying the size of the drive they are mounted on.

Is there some option for this, or an alternative?

Maybe I don't know how to google?
I'm guessing it's just the way it is....

I've seen that thread.
The setup instructions are correct.

When he shows the free space, he is showing the mapped drive, not the mount.

On CPUa:
Mount drive1 to C:\Drives\Drive1
Mount drive2 to C:\Drives\Drive2

On CPUb:
net use M: \\CPUa\c$\drives

You see on CPUb M drive in explorer:

Their size will show the size of CPUa c$

This is not helpful in any way whatsoever.
