  • 'Path' specifies the existing NTFS directory where the mount point will reside.

  • '/L' Lists the mounted volume name for the specified directory.

Important

A volume can have only one drive letter. Using Mountvol to assign a drive letter fails if the volume already has a drive letter. To avoid this problem, delete the drive letter of the volume before assigning one using Mountvol.
