Mounting SVOLs on Windows

Hi everyone,

I need to be able to run a script after breaking some ShadowImage pairs.  The script needs to mount the SVOLs and run some ESEUtil commands against the newly mounted SVOLs.  However, each time we split the SVOLs, the OS gives them a new identifier.  For example, each time we plit the SVOLs the volume GUID changes and the \\?\GLOBALROOT\Device\Harddiskvolume213 name increments each time as well. 

Because of this its not possible to write a script to mount the SVOLs. 

Does anybody know of a way to get around this - either set something so that the volume identifiers in the OS do not change, or another way of specifying the SVOLs that the OS does not change each time we split them.

Thanks for your help,

Nigel
