I really wonder how this is supposed to work. Just by adding a volume node, you will get an icon - yes. But any locks from this volume node can only go to the root of the file system this is "assigned to", and not to a particular directory. In particular, the zero-lock would go to the root of the hosting disk, and not to the "assign" itself. This would have at least the side effect that any program attempting to find the path name of a lock would get a path name that is outside of the "assign".

Let's probably ask another question: What particular problem is supposed to be solved here that is not solved by an assign, or a RAD:?
