Autorun On External Hdd In Windows 7?


Recommended Posts

Hey does anyone know of a workaround for autorun on usb media in windows 7?

I wrote a batch file to automatically backup my data and preform other tasks when I plug my external hard drive in.

It was only after I wrote this that I realised that custom autorun's are disabled in windows 7 for usb media.

I was wondering if there’s any registry hacks or workarounds for this.

Anyone know?

Now, I'm not 100% sure that this will work, but try messing with the 4 settings on this tab and see if any of them fix your issue. I know they worked on trying to kill autorun stuff for removable media as a security measure, but it wouldn't surprise me if its just a policy setting.

gpedit.msc > computer configuration > administrative templates > windows components > autoplay policies
