Associate folders with drive letters using this handy utility that guides you through the process. Drive Folder's primary function uses a simple three-step wizard. The program's interface is merely the wizard's start button and another to open a batch file management panel.
Operating Drive Folder takes just a few seconds. You can either chose a folder from the usual browse dialog or simply drop it on the interface. The application displays open drive letters and you click the one you want. Drive Folder then creates a batch file based on your options. The rest of the program merely makes it easy to find, display, or invoke your batch files.
Drive Folder is freeware that takes a common DOS function, subst, and makes it so accessible a novice can understand it.

From Vasilios Freeware:
Create Virtual Drives by associating folders of your disks with Drive letters. Drive Folder associates folders with Drive letters making them to behave as physical Drives. This is very convenient if you use specific folders to store data files, multimedia, downloads, and you have each time to follow a complex Explorer trespass. Create an appropriate batch file using the three steps Wizard, and run it from the Batch Files Management panel. This version is the first release on CNET Download.com.
As any noob will find out, any directory can be seen/accessed as one of your system's drives. This can be done using the command "subst". But won't work with a 2 word name, ie. "My Folder".. This eliminates all issues with it's simple interface.
None at all.
As said before, using Subst in a command window can make any directory be treated as one of the system's drives. But with long names you could run into problems using this technique. Drive Folder eliminates any and all issues that could occur as far as I can tell.
Not only does it mount folders as drives it also un-mounts just as simply. It utilizes tiny bat files & keeps everything organized, tidy and controllable within a small space.
It's easier than typing commands manually. Creates the bat files it uses, but you can access them and use them without the program if you enjoy work.
It does what it does well, can fit on easily on a small thumb type drive.
