Mapping folders to drive letters


I needed to map a folder on Windows XP to a drive letter to emulate another machine, and looking around for an application that would do this I came across one that has been bundled with Windows since the DOS days: Subst

This handy little util will map any folder to a free drive letter, fire up a cmd shell window and type:

subst e: s:\myfolder</tt>

This will map myfolder to the e:\ drive.  Simple as that.
