Use SUBST command…
[sourcecode language=”cpp”]SUBST [drive1: [drive2:]path]
SUBST drive1: /D
drive1: Specifies a virtual drive to which you want to assign a path.
[drive2:]path Specifies a physical drive and path you want to assign to
a virtual drive.
/D Deletes a substituted (virtual) drive.[/sourcecode]
Type SUBST with no parameters to display a list of current virtual drives. An e.g. usage, create a “p:” virtual drive for documents and settings folder path…
[sourcecode language=’cpp’]subst p: “C:Documents and Settings”[/sourcecode]
To delete an existing virtual drive use…
[sourcecode language=’cpp’]subst /D p:[/sourcecode]
To see all existing virtual drives created…
[sourcecode language=’cpp’]C:Documents and Settings>subst
N:: => C:
P:: => C:Documents and Settings[/sourcecode]
Also note that on machine restart these drives are not restored, for restoration after startup, create a batch file and put it into “Startup” folder in explorer. After a virtual drive is created, explorer shows this as an independent drive.
