- At a command prompt, type mountvol /e to turn on the Automount option for new disks.
- Run the New Partition wizard. Format a new volume that does not have a drive leter.
- At a command prompt, type mountvol /n to turn off the Automount option.
Note Do not leave the Automout option turned on on systems that have complex storage configurations, such as Storage Area Networks (SANs). On systems where drives are exposed to more than one system, the drives could be exposed to unexpected systems. This exposure could cause these systems to lose data access or could cause data corruption.
