I have a laptop that will be deployed out on our WAN.  Typcially I access the C drive of this laptop remotely across the network by entering:

\\toshiba0076\c$

However, I have never been able to access usb sticks that are also used in this computer at the remote location.  How can I set the laptop to automatically share a usb stick that is entered?  Typically they show up as H: or K: on this machine.

Thanks

You can create a simple batch file to automatically share the usb flash drive.
When you plug in your USB flash drive, just run the batch file and it will share.

Open notepad and type in the command:
net share ShareName=e:

ShareName is for you to enter any word that will be the shared folder name and e: is for you to enter your USB flash drive letter.

Save it as shareUSB.bat
 

or you can use softwares
