Getting the GUID of a Volume

Posted on 2007-10-07

I need to find the GUID of one of my volumes on Windows XP Media Center.

I am trying to use the "mountvol" command which requires volumes to be named by GUID instead of volume name.

    I think 'mountvol' command itself shows the GUID's with heading: "Possible values for VolumeName along with current mount points are:"

    I just wanted to make it clear why I gave farhankazi most of the points:

    johnb6767's answer was a good starting point, but the information was not clear when I looked at that key.  It's true that the mountvol command does list the GUIDs for each volume, but I didn't notice because my DOS window was too small!

    So thanks to both of you.
