ChangeDriveLetter script for XYplorer

Postby highend » 04 Aug 2011 20:12

Take a look at the "Remarks:" section on top of the code on how to use it.

Paypal donations are always accepted :D

Code: Select all
/* 04.08.2011, change drive letters
   ::load "<xyscripts>\ChangeDriveLetter.xys";

   Remarks: XYplorer must have been started with admin rights. As an alternative you could create a task with highest privileges that
   executes the VBScript file and can be called with a temporary batch file (like schtasks /run /tn "ChangeDriveLetter"). A third way
   would be the use of psexec but it requires a small bit of configuration on your pc (enable Administrator account, give it a password,
   etc.). See http://technet.microsoft.com/de-de/sysinternals/bb897553 for further details.

Not bad! :)

Thanks for this. I have hacked the code a bit to make it always change the current drive, see below. This way you can make it into a nice user button. I recommend ":rename" as icon.

Re: ChangeDriveLetter script for XYplorer

Hello again,

I have attached the following code at the end of the script:

Code: Select all
   $NewPath = replace("<curpath>",$SelectedDriveLetter,$DestinationDriveLetter);
   tab("relocate", $NewPath);


The idea is to stay in the current folder after drive letter change to make it more practical.

But I get some very strange behavior with this code: Apparently, changing drive letters takes a a short while, so as soon as "relocate" is called I only see the "path does not exist" error message. Which would be fine because with a little delay the folder should become available, so everything should be fine.

But what really happens is that I see that error message only for a very short period (less than a second) and then I get "forwarded" to %computer%. Am I doing something wrong? Or is this a bug?

Don't know.

Have you tried to use a while loop with exists() to only change the folder when it gets available?

I had tried that but it did not work.

But now I have figured out that for some reason you need to add an additional wait. I don't really know why, but here you go, this works well.

Of course another nice upgrade would be to cycle through all open tabs, looking for all paths using the old letter and replacing it with the new one. But currently I am too lazy for that. :P
