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