I would like to take a path on my C:\Big\Long\Path\Name and map it to another drive letter such as r:\   WITHOUT networking the folder.
I do not wish to share these files, I just want it to appear as drive R:\

Thank you for any help that you might have!!!

I initially got an error message of "Invalid parameter -r:"
until I realized that r: was already taken by a network drive.

Thank you for your help guys!
