Access Folders as Drives

You can create Virtual Drives in your Computer. Now you can access your Favorite Folders as a drive in My Computer. This drive will show Disk Space of the folder's drive so it seems that the disk space has increased!!!

Do The Following:

1]. Start >> Run

2]. Type cmd and hit Enter
This will open "Command Prompt"

3]. Type subst Z: E:\folder and hit Enter key.
You can replace Z: with your desired New Drive Letter (Except existing Drive letters)!
You can replace E:\folder with the path of your favorite folder!

4]. Now, type exit
This creates a new drive! When you open this, it will open your folder!!!

Isn't it Awesome?
But a Problem!
On Restart the Virtual Drive Disappears !!!

We can make a batch file which will make the drive every time on startup !
Here is how?

1]. Open Notepad

2]. Type:
subst Z: E:\folder

3]. File >> Save As...
Name it: Virtual Drive Emulator.bat

4]. Start >> All Programs

5]. Right Click on Startup >> Open
This opens the Startup folder

6]. Paste the Virtual Drive Emulator.bat file here!
That's all; now the drive will automatically be created when ever you start your pc

>>>> Mission Accomplished <<<<<
