Mount Hard Disk Partitions to Windows explorer (MAP)????

Postby Nikosp » Thu May 30, 2013 6:42 am

Can I associate partition to a drive letter so i can use it in windows explorer ? or in command prompt of windows ?
I am talking outside from Terravyte command promt.
Example windows xp cant See GPT partitions but ...
with OPEN command i can mount a GPT partition under XP.
I can also see files under terrabyte OS.
But i cant see files in windows explorer to drag and drop or copy or paste or move in a graphical GUI...like windows explorer.
Any Ideas?

Explain me something...how can windows xp 32bit can see a 3TB GPT disk ?? I know they are limited to 2.2Tb but how can this happen??? It will be a great idea to make tbexplo.tbs with a graphical GUI similar to windows for all operations.

That's not Windows XP that is accessing the 3TB GPT disk, that's only tbosdtw.
