Windows 7: Sharing folders with homegroup, using a batch file?

Sharing folders with homegroup, using a batch file?


Due to some drives being portable, windows unshares them all the time on reboot, so I'm wondering if there is a command line option (batch command) to share folders with a homegroup.

I already did some checking, and found that when you share a folder, it starts the process "C:\Windows\system32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs" which writes to the register in "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\LanmanServer\Shares"

Anyone has an idea of how I can do this?

net use /? at command prompt for help.
