    "Adequate Replacement for the DOS SUBST command"

    November 17, 2009  |   By alm1024

    Pros

    Small, Easy to use graphical interface, Can use with folders that cannot be "subst"ed in dos because of their long name.

    It fulfils all of my virtual mapping needs.

    Cons

    None found yet.

    Summary

    You can create "virtual" drives that point to a folder but appear as a drive in windows explorer. This is analogous to the dos program SUBST which does the same thing but Virtual Subst can work with folders that have names that are too big to access in dos, or have spaces, or do not have an assigned 8 character dos name (remember that SUBST was created in the dark times where file and folder names had to be less than 8 characters long and where dinosaurs roamed the earth!).

    I use this program to create virtual drives from folders that contain DVD files for Mediaplayer classic to open as a DVD. I know what you're about to say, this guy is a tool because you can just make an iso and mount it instead, well yes but I like doing it my way :-P
