Group membership based on disk device name

Sometimes you need to create new values for every volume with the same drive letter, for example all Quorum (Q:) disks. You can then create a dynamic group that includes all volumes with a specific device name.

Create a new group. On the “Dynamic Members” tab select “Windows Logical Hardware Component” as class, then “Device Name” as property and suitable operator and value. For example if you want to select all C: volumes, the query will look like

( Object is Windows Logical Hardware Component AND ( Device Name Equals C: ) AND True )
