Enables or disables the automount feature.

For examples of how this command can be used, see Examples.

Syntax

automount [enable] [disable] [scrub] [noerr]

Parameters

Parameter Description

enable

Enables Windows to automatically mount new basic volumes that are added to the system and to assign them drive letters.

disable

Prevents Windows from automatically mounting any new basic volumes that are added to the system.

scrub

Removes volume mount point directories and registry settings for volumes that are no longer in the system. This prevents volumes that were previously in the system from being automatically mounted and given their former volume mount point(s) when they are added back to the system.

noerr

For scripting only. When an error is encountered, DiskPart continues to process commands as if the error did not occur. Without this parameter, an error causes DiskPart to exit with an error code.

Remarks

  • When the automount feature is enabled (the default), Windows automatically mounts the file system for a new basic volume when it is added to the system and then assigns a drive letter to the volume.

  • In storage area network (SAN) configurations, disabling automount prevents Windows from automatically mounting or assigning drive letters to any new basic volumes that are visible to the system.
