Mapping "Previous Versions" using "net use"

Within the properties dialog of files and folders in Windows 2003 Server I can access previous versions using the graphical GUI.

Is it possible to map such a previous version with a network drive (for example using "net use")? Could be some notation similary to \\servername\sharename\.snapshot (this works on our NetApp filer).

Best regards
Chris

I think it's not possible because it works on drive's GUID so, you cannot mount network drive using "net use" command.
You can try if you will be satisfied with VSSadmin command-line tool.

Thank you. Is there another way to copy files from a snapshot copy via command prompt? I didn't find any way using VSSAdmin.

Best regards,
