/P (NT2003)
Removes the volume mount point from the specified directory, dismounts the basic volume, and takes the basic volume offline, making it unmountable. If other processes are using the volume, closes any open handles before dismounting the volume. Volumes dismounted using /p are listed in the volumes list as NOT MOUNTED UNTIL A VOLUME MOUNT POINT IS CREATED. If the volume has more than one mount point, use /D to remove the additional mount points before using /p. You can make the basic volume mountable again by assigning a volume mount point.
/R (NT2003)
Removes volume mount point directories and registry settings for volumes that are no longer in the system. Prevents volumes that were previously in the system from being automatically mounted and given their former volume mount point(s) when added back to the system.
/S (NTXP)
Itanium-based computers only. Mounts the EFI System Partition on the specified drive.
Volname (NT2000)
The volume name that is the target of the mount point. The volume name form \\?\Volume{GUID}\, where {GUID} is a globally unique identifier (GUID).
