Set user friendly name on mapped drives - VBS


I have a logon script mapping drives to the users.

How do I in VBScript set a user friendly name on the share?

For example user on (\\server\share) (H:) to Home (H:)...

Thanks in advance

Mmmm... try this: once the drive has been mapped, use this API function:

Private Declare Function SetVolumeLabel Lib "kernel32" Alias _
"SetVolumeLabelA" (ByVal lpRootPathName As String, _
ByVal lpVolumeName As String) As Long

You can use it this way:
Call SetVolumeLabel("H:","Home")

Hope that helps.
