Persistent SUBST command

Works the same way as command.com´s native SUBST command, but in a reboot-persistent manner.

Purpose

Command.com´s native SUBST command is a great tool, but every drive mapping get´s erased when windows reboots. PSubst creates reboot-persistent virtual drive mappings.

To do this, PSubst requires administrative rights, so there is an in-built elevation function that is called when needed.

Usage

Run psubst.bat /? for usage instructions. Note: arguments can be specified in any order.

When can this be used?

  • Temporary subst when the physical drive is missing;
  • Mapping Network drives
  • Bypass Windows limitation for the size of filepath (256 characters);
  • Working of some application within own space;
  • Emulation of other operational systems.
  • Personal files organization
