Hello,
I want to create a virtual drive ( r: for example ) for a path on my disk ( e:\mypath\myapplication\mysources\ for example )
How can I do ?
I've tried to share my directory and to connect to it, but it's very slow.
thanks

If there is a NIC in your computer,you can give an IP address for you NIC,restart computer,and map a netword drive.

Hi NCA,
   Use subst command to create a virtual drive for a path on your disk.  The method of usage of that command is :

To create a virtual drive, goto dos prompt and type (as specified in your example) as follows

subst r: e:\mypath\myapplication\mysources

And to delete that virtual drive created by subst command, use

subst r: /D

Regards Dutt.
