Using Subst command to create virtual drives

Subst is being use to associate or substitutes folders as virtual drives. The command lets you access data easily and By functionality, its almost the same as creating folders to computer window.

type “cmd” at Start search, and follow the command below

commandprompt

s: – virtual drive letter

files – folder that you want to associate (c:\files)

localdisk

Afterwards, you’ll see the virtual drive instantly. Anyway, the problem with the command, when the computer restarts, all created virtual drives will be deleted automatically.

Use File > Save As and go to the following folder location

C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

Make sure that you Click ALL Files (*.*) and write the filename

subst_batchfile

Great?!

To delete any virtual drive use the command SUBST Drive /d

e.g. Subst s: /d

Usage

C:\Users\mstouch>subst /?
Associates a path with a drive letter.

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.
