Auto ExtraFiles

Auto ExtraFiles are files that are copied from a Windows Install.wim during an Import-OSMedia, Update-OSMedia, or an New-OSBuildTask. They are then copied to WinPE\AutoExtraFiles. The purpose is to inject these files into WinPE when executing a PEBuild Task.

To add Auto ExtraFiles to your already up to date OSMedia, simply run Update-OSMedia again. You will have to manually rename the new OSMedia to remove the random 4 digits at the end of the OSMedia name


When creating a New-PEBuildTask, you will have the option to copy the Auto ExtraFiles to WinPE using the -AutoExtraFiles parameter
