TBIMount Persistence

Postby Mike » Sat Oct 22, 2011 8:48 pm

Is there a way to mount an image with TBIMount and cause the mounting to be persistent? I discovered that I have to run TBIMount as an Administrator in Windows 7. It would be nice if I didn't have to go through the mounting procedure after each boot.

No, but you can change the service to start automatically or have a script
run in startup that starts it and has admin level privileges.

If it's for access to the file itself, just change ownership then
permissions on the file or folder/files.

You can easily setup Task Scheduler to run TBIMount at startup or log on.

For example, set the Action to "Start a program" and set the Program to tbimount.exe (just browse to it). Then set the arguments to mount the image:

mount z: "e:\my backup image" /id 0x02

Use the drive letter, image file name, and ID value that's correct for your setup. On the General tab of the task, make sure to check the "Run with highest privileges" option (this lets it run automatically without the UAC prompt).

If I could get TBIView to run by just double clicking on the image file, I would be happy. However, when I double click on it, I get the warnings that I don't have the privileges necessary to run the file. The only way I can open the file is to start TBIView or TBIMount using "Run as Administrator." The ownership of the file shows as the logged in user account, which has admin privileges. The permissions settings on Windows 7 look like the same settings on Windows Servers, but I have not been able to effect the changes.

It would be a great addition to TBIMount to be able to add persistence. In the mean time, I'll try to work with the security settings and, if that fails, try to follow the suggestions above.

It's also possible to set up such a task not actually scheduled to run and have a batch file to invoke the task whenever desired. This allows invoking as desired without interaction with UAC. I realize this may not be as convenient as clicking the file, but it's another possible workaround.
