Hi,

How can I create a virtual Drive that is a map of a folder from my harddisk?

It's like creating a map network drive, but the folder is from my own computer. Please let me know how to do that with Delphi 5.0.

Thank you.

This is the easiest way I know of.

ShellExecute(0, 'OPEN','SUBST','P: C:\WINDOWS','', SW_HIDE);

Uses ShellAPI.


Hope this helps,

Stu.

There is an API for this purpose, it's called DefineDosDevice.
