Windows Explorer doesn't lend itself very well to identifing your mapped drives. When users have an explorer window open that looks like this:

having them find a given drive letter, "select your H: drive", isn't as easy as it sounds.

Now isn't that better? Simply copy UPCASE.EXE and ENABLEDRIVEICONS.EXE to everyone's Windows directory:

 copy f:\public\upcase.exe %windir% /y

Then just run EnableDriveIcons.exe once for each user (or just add to the machine startup).

That's cool!

Download EnableDriveIcons.exe here.
