Hello everyone. I was trying to script shortcuts in my winfe environment to do different tasks like for example grab all docs and photos from a hard drive. My question is how do I tell it to look at all the drives on them machine except itself. I want to get it to the point where I can just boot in to WinFE\PE and just click a list of choises of shortcuts and move on to something else. This is what I have so far but I’m not sure it will work. It looks like the hd is always showing up as dev/sda and the USB that is running WinFE is Sdb but can someone confirm this. Also any advice on the scripting would be great. I haven’t tested this yet so there may be other tweaks that need to be made.

Well, it's usually better to use PhotoRec partition by partition because the filesystems may have different blocksize /different offset.
The number of partitions and harddisks may vary.
