Is it possible to mount a folder so that windows recognize it as an external usb storage (like a memory card or usb stick)? Using Window 8.

You should try Visual Subst. It's a lightweight tool to generate virtual drives from directories.

Thanks for your answer. But It's not exactly what I'm looking for because that mounts it as a Drive. Was I need is something that simulates a ubs device. – gsharp Oct 4 '13 at 20:41

You can use the batch command SUBST drive_letter: path

SUBST Z: C:\path\to\source\folder
  • Where Z: is your desired drive letter and C:\path\to\source\folder your source folder
  • Make a batch file and place it in your autostart folder. Otherwise the substitution is lost after every reboot
