Add-AppxVolume

Adds an appx volume to the Package Manager.

Syntax

Add-AppxVolume
   [-Path] <String[]>
   [-Confirm]
   [-WhatIf]
   [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Add-AppxVolume cmdlet adds an AppxVolume for the Package Manager to advertise. After you add a volume, appx deployment operations can use that volume as a target. This cmdlet returns the volume that it adds. Note, the Path parameter must be specified as a drive letter followed by "WindowsApps" as the directory. Not using the aforementioned format could lead to inconsistent behavior in the application model subsystems or the volume itself; for more information see the examples section.
