select vdisk file=<full path> [noerr]


Parameter Description

file=<full path>

Specifies the full path and file name of an existing VHD file.


Used for scripting only. When an error is encountered, DiskPart continues to process commands as if the error did not occur. Without this parameter, an error causes DiskPart to exit with an error code.
