While there may not be anything in a name, Extra Subst just doesn't roll off the tongue or give users a hint at what this program does. According to the publisher, Extra Subst is designed to give you quick access to frequently used files or folders. Almost as a second thought, they mention the program's ability to create virtual drives.

In reality, Extra Subst creates virtual drives and lets you store nearly anything in them, but even novice users won't be intimidated by this program's intuitive approach. The program's basic interface is divided into two main sections. The top half displays currently used drives, while the lower half shows available drives you can use for the virtual drives. You simply associate the new drive with an existing folder and you can easily access items you have stored there. If you have a large music collection, for example, and don't want to navigate into the My Document's music subfolder, you can place your music files in a virtual drive. You can create multiple drives to organize whatever you like.

While we weren't fond of its name, we did like this freeware's user-friendly approach to organizing files and folders in virtual drives.

Developer's Description

Create, edit and remove virtual drives on your computer.
Extra Subst - program designed to make access to frequently used folders of your computer easier. It is also used to create, edit and remove virtual drives of your computer. Extra Subst creates virtual drives on the basis of selected folders. Physical drives remain unchanged and are not divided into additional partitions.

Example 1: By default the folder "My Documents" is situated in the operational system "MS Windows XP" rather uncomfortably:"C:\Documents and Settings\User Name\My Documents\"With the help of the program "Extra Subst" you can create a virtual drive - for example drive "R:\" and select "My Documents" folder. After that, in your system the drive "R:\" will appear in which your documents will be kept. To access your documents you just click the drive icon "R:\" and there is no need to look for it in a folders tree. Example 2: You can create virtual drives for any folders with which you work often. For example, you can create drive "M:\" for the folder with your musical files "d:\archive\music\", drive "V:\" for the folder with your video files "d:\archive\music\" or drive "G:\" for the folder with your games and you do not need to divide your hard drive into additional partitions for that.Example 3: If you a web-designer you can make your project folder as a separate drive. In that case your project will be the same as if it were on Internet server.
