I want my laptop's hard drive to appear on my PC like it is a hard drive installed on the PC. Before you lecture me on network drives - I know this. In fact, I already have the drives across the network so I can share information. The problem is I want to use a backup program that won't let you back up across network drives. Is it possible for me to fool my OS into thinking the laptop drives which are currently networked drives are in fact hard drives inside the PC? ---------------- *FWIW: I have been a big user of Alcohol 120 and Daemon tools over the years. That is what got me thinking about this. I was kind of like, 'You know it IS possible to fool the OS into thinking I got a CD drive when one doesn't exist. Is it possible to fool it into thinking I have a hard drive where one doesn't currently exist?
