/D switch creates a directory symbolic link. By default, MKLink creates a file symbolic link.

Syntax:
MKLink /D <Link Name> <Remote UNC / Local Directory Path>

Not sure if you can re-share existing mapped drive. But you can create symbolic folder from remote UNC path and share with users/everyone.

To create symbolic folder:
MKLink /D C:\RemoteData \\MyNAS\Share

Open in new window


Above statement will create folder symbolic link on C: drive with name RemoteData which actually points to your existing network share \\MyNAS\Share.

To re-share local link:
NET SHARE ReShare=C:\RemoteData /GRANT:Everyone,READ

Open in new window


Above statement will create share on Windows box with name ReShare and will assign Everyone Read-only permissions.

This way you can re-share remote share on your Windows box.

Hope this helps!
