ok i need a hand on this i am trying to get a cmd that will find the usb thumb drive in any computer i plug it in to.

The usb drive in a winpe with 2 partitions.

partitions 1  is the winpe
partitions 2 is the images

It's also bitlocked

i have this script i found the file name is unlock

@echo off & cls

set Volume=%1:

echo.

manage-bde.exe -unlock -password %Volume%

echo. & pause & echo.

:: End of script

Open in new window


to run it i just unlock d

the D drive would be the bitlocked usb drive. It would ask for the password i enter it in and it unlocks it for me.

That's great after it unlock i want it to launch a hta file on the unlocked usb drive.


What i need help with is HOW do i find the usb drive letter and have it run the command unlock "drive letter it finds"

I always what it to prompt for the password i type it in and them it opens the hta file on the usb drive

this is what i have so far

strComputer = "."
Set oShell = WScript.CreateObject ("WScript.shell") 
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colDisks = objWMIService.ExecQuery ("SELECT * FROM Win32_LogicalDisk")

For Each objDisk in colDisks
 
 Select Case objDisk.DriveType

 Case 2

Wscript.Echo "DeviceID: "& objDisk.DeviceID & " Removable drive."
 
 
  oShell.run "manage-bde.exe -unlock -password " & "objDisk.DeviceID"
 
 End Select
Next

Open in new window
