Customizable Virtual Drive
Posted on 2003-11-13
What I'm trying to do is to get a virtual drive (x:) to contain what I tell it to contain.
I imagine an array of TThisIsAFile or something like that, where a TThisIsAFile have attributes for date, size, name, etc. and when pressed/clicked/activated by double-clicking on the file on the x-drive, the application would 'present' the file to windows (might getting it via a network connection of having the file in the memory or getting it from another place on the harddrive).
I tried to look at a program subst (working like the dos program subst, mapping a directory to a drive) and the possibility of making symbolic links - but the symbolic links thing didn't give me the possibilities I needed, it wanted to have the file when making the link, instead of just making a call when the file is requested.
