Sometimes it’s so easy…

LowHangingFruitsDear JDisc friends,

from time to time customers request features that are easy or trivial to implement. And whenever that happens, I am wondering why I didn’t implement this feature in the past!

Yesterday, a customer asked whether it would be possible to gather the list of mapped disk drives. Up to now, we collected only the local disk drives and ignored network mapped drives. However, the implementation was trivial. Just modify the WMI query and store the remote location in the already existing location field!

After just 120 minutes, the feature was fully implemented. That’s what I call low hanging fruits :-). Grab them whenever you find some of them…

There you go with the new feature:

JDisc Discovery gets the mapped nework drives.

Hope you like it!

The feature will be available in build 3315 which will be released on 2nd of March 2016. Feel free to download the release and check out this new feature.
